Visiting the Killamery High cross, I spied just to the south of the cross a striking gravestone, that of “William Costello, of the parish of Grangemocler”.
With a little bit of careful rubbing with paper and pencil (crayon not being to hand) I deciphered the inscription:
William Costello of the parish of Grangemocler
All you that pafs this woful Elegy
Your former sins repent and pray for me
Death has constrained my age at 33
A perfect warning to posterity
1807 III June he died
May his Soul in heaven be Ever Glorified.
Unfortunately getting a good view of the stone in the light with my phone camera proved tricky, so apologies for the quality of these images.
