Smiss Stone

Image from the Smiss Stone.

One of Fethard's Sheela-na-Gigs, Co. Tipperary..

There is a Sheela-na-Gig built into the old wall near the river and visible from the medieval bridge on the north side of the town. Her face looks grim, she has very prominent ribs and widely spread thighs with hands meeting beneath them at her vulva.
