He was known as "James the Lame" and he died in 1546 by poisoning in London. His body was buried in London but his heart returned to Ireland and buried in the cathedral

In 1391, James, 3rd Earl of Ormond, purchased Kilkenny Castle in Kilkenny City and made it the primary family home. Built in the twelfth century, the castle has endured numerous times of crisis in Ireland's history

Called "The Lame". Viscount Thurles, E. Ossory. Brought up at the Court of Henry VIII who had a high regard for him and created him Viscount Thurles in the lifetime of his father. The King's policy was to equalise as far as possible the influence of the rival houses of Butler and FitzGerald. For 14 years James was Lord High Treasurer of Ireland, and he was given no less than seven religious establishments on the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Then, 17 Oct 1546 at the age of 42, he went with his steward, and sixteen of his servants to be entertained to supper at Ely House in Holborn and he and they were mortally poisoned. His steward and 16 of his servants reportedly died of the same. The confusion caused by his Will gave rise to the founding of the Irish Public Record Office.

St Mary's Church
Collegiate Church, Effigial Tombs and Ogham Stone
The Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, to state it's full name, is a really wonderful 13th century building. This rectangular church has undergone many changes over the years. The original chancel was removed and replaced by a 19th century Parish Church, the superb central tower was vastly modified in the 14th or 15th century and the crenellations were added to the church. The church was served by a college of clerics, rather than monks, who lived in a nearby house.
There are a number of effigial tombs are situated in the chancel at St Mary's. Two of them are altar tombs. The first one pictured above bears the damaged carving of an unkown Butler knight. The sides of the tomb are decorated with carvings of the twelve apostles and the Butler coat of arms. resting at his feet is his dog, a symbol of loyalty.
Two the west of the single altar tomb is a double tomb. It features the effigies of two unknown Butler knights. It is believed they are 15th century carvings depicting Butlers from Paustown or Neigham. There feet are also resting on there loyal dog. The crucifixion, below left, appears on the west end of the tomb.

On the southside, opposite the Rice tomb, is a 16th century effigy of an unknown knight. The limestone mensa is resting on a modern stone table. The head is lying on a single cushion and the feet are resting on his faithful dog. If the dog is growling it symbolises his master had a violent death. The knights face has been damaged, which is quite common, as the medieval knights had many enemies. Lying on the floor below the knights head is a 16th century female effigy, see bottom image. She is wearing a V-necked pleated gown and her hands are joined in prayer.
