Rock of Cashel Sheelas, one on external wall and one in museum (visited June 1996)

While browsing through the museum at the Rock of Cashel, I was pleasantly surprised to find a sheela-na-gig among the pieces on exhibit. Neither of the Cashel sheelas are documented in Anderson's book. I have been unable to find out (either from Rock of Cashel staff or in my sheela books) where this piece originally hung. But the staff members did direct me outside to the second Cashel sheela. She sits fairly high up on the outside wall on the castle, placed sideways like the Doon and Kiltinan sheelas.
