St. Éidín Memorial

Carved on site by Will Fogartty of Fear na Coillte Chainsaw Sculptures, this beautiful sculpture honouring the 7th century St. Eidin was unveiled in 2018 at the boardwalk in the Linear Park in Carrick-on-Shannon.

St. Eidin is the patron saint of Tumna parish and is buried in the ruins of a small church there just north of Carrick on Shannon in Roscommon. ‘Tuaim mná’ – which translates as “the tomb of the woman” – is mentioned in the Annals of the Four Masters, which chronicle medieval Irish history.
