Detail from St. Manchan's Shrine, Boher, Ballycumber, Co. Offaly, Ireland

A detail from St. Manchan's Shrine, Boher, Ballycumber, Co. Offaly, Ireland. Made at Clonmacnois about 1130 AD. This object is ranked among the Treasures of Ireland and is possibly the only such religious shrine to remain with the people who love it in its home parish. The ornamental work is a mix of Viking and Irish styles
