Janus Figure

In Caldragh Cemetery on Boa Island, Lower lough Erne stand two unique stone carvings. The larger of these is a Janus figure , two figures back to back with pear shaped heads and interlacing between the heads representing hair. The East face pictured left is carved with a penis and is the male side of the figure, and the west face pictured above is the female side. Both of these carving are in high relief. The smaller figure which is known as “the Lustyman” because it was found on the nearby island Lusty More, may in fact be a female figure. Both figures are described as Celtic Idols. The Carvings appear to have weathered quite a lot in recent years

Janus Figure photo gallery

Such a beautifully clean and laid out cottage, the views from the cottage and the lane up the side of the cottage are breath-taking, the hot-tub and sauna are the business we all enjoyed it, one of the highlights for me was sitting out front at night with a beer not a neighbour or anyone to look at you, I will miss this place, but i will be back, Josephine has got another regular.
