Lackagh Old Church & stone carvingOmagh Tyrone - Northern Ireland
This church probably dates to the early seventeenth century but almost certainly is on the site of earlier Early Christian Period and medieval churches. There is a stone carving in the graveyard to the southeast of the church building. On one face, the carving depicts two figures in profile. They appear to be wrestling. They may represent Jacob wrestling with the angel, a scene that appears on a number of high crosses. According to local tradition, the stone is supposed to mark the grave of Siamese twins. It may date to the Early Christian Period.
