Effigy of a FitzEustace knight, St.John's CoI church, Ballymore Eustace, Co.Kildare.
[Tickell, 1955] says there is some evidence that this is Sir Edward FitzEustace (died 1454) but some authorities date it to a later period.
e.g. The OPW sign at the site (see full size) says it is early 1500s.
This effigy was formerly at Old Kilcullen and was later moved to Ballymore Eustace
1782 sketch by Austin Cooper of the above effigy. At which time it was in Old Kilcullen.
Note, probably by Albert Damer Cooper, says that the effigy is "supposed to be Sir Rowland Eustace or Gerald Earl of Kildare"
The tomb, which features a damaged figure of a knight, may have been made for Richard, son of Sir Roland FitzEustace, Baron Portlester and Lord of Castlemartin or for Thomas, Lord of Castlemartin. Under the tomb was a vault in which eleven skeletons were found, and this remains in situ
