Stone Corbel

This stone corbel (beam support) has been carved into a head with the typical haircut of a Dominican monk (tonsured). It was found in Arundel Square in the late 1970s and went into private hands, then passed into the hands of Our Lady of Mercy Secondary school from which Waterford City Council acquired it in 1995. It is probably from the 13th century Blackfriars Dominican Priory in Arundel Square, Waterford.
