Notes: 

Pediment supported by two pillars and a large rectangular base. The inscription is within the rectangular panel framed by the pillars. It is a Monument with fluted Doric columns. The bases of the columns are supported on a rectangular base. The base is decorated with floral patterns with the patterns duplicated on the pedestals supporting the columns. The Butler coat of Arms is displayed in the tympanum. Monument somewhat overgrown. A sketch in Phelan (1978) shows an urn at the top of the pediment. It is not possible to determine if this is still present due to the level of the overgrowth. This monument was at one time inside the chancel until It was shortened in 1820.
