Graffiti Kilconnell


Christy Cunniffe

Graffiti in Killconnell Friary.

This crudely cut motif comprises of an incised grid pattern on the face of one of the  columns in the cloister arcade at Kilconnell Friary. It is difficult to know its original purpose. It may be a layout design for a structure or perhaps a game based on the use of a checkerboard pattern. Generally graffiti is found on plaster, often functioning as the outline for paintwork. Various pieces of graffiti found on church fabric bear a symbolic meaning. Hunting scenes, ships and biblical scenes are the commonest themes.
