Dr Paddy Moriarty's Slate Gravestone in Kilmalkedar Churchyard on the Dingle Peninsula
"HERE LIES DR PADDY MORIARTY
WHO MINISTERED TO THE PEOPLE
OF THIS PENINSULA FOR THIRTY YEARS
AND DIED ON DECEMBER 31ST 1944
AGED 51 MAY HE REST IN PEACE"
I loved the quirky yellow rocket (I stand corrected: it is a rowing boat) on his gravestone, its unusual material and unformed shape...

You are right of course! All this time I was thinking what an odd thing to have on a gravestone.
Relatively young man to be dying on New Year's Eve in 1944...
