Saints of Felix O'Dulany

Carvings of the Saints on the tomb of Felix O'Dulany, Jerpoint's first abbot and bishop of Ossory, who died in 1202. A mere 9 years before taking the role as bishop Felix experienced the Anglo-Norman invasion and the surrender of all the O'Dulany lands. Despite this Felix considered himself the father of all committed to his care regardless of weather they were Norman or Celts. His tomb attracted pilgrims well into the 1800's.
