This recumbent grave-slab bears an incised cross with calvary base of a seventeenth-century style. It has an angled coffin-shaped top. It lacks and inscription so is difficult to date with any precision. It may be seventeenth century but could equally be of an early eighteenth-century origin. The cross head bears an open lozenge in the centre where one would expect to find an IHS monogram and small cross. This is the earliest datable memorial stone in Grange graveyard near New inn Co. Galway.
