    Sheela-Na-Gig

    by dustmon Updated May 23, 2010

    A Sheela-Na-Gig is a sculptured figure from the past that nobody really knows what they mean---It is usually a crude representation of a woman stretching her vagina open, and is usually, but not always, above a southern-facing doorway of a Church, sometimes a Monastery, sometimes a Nunnery. I did some internet research (check out www.irelands-sheelanagigs.org) and went to Killinaboy and found this one on the Church south wall.
