Something "Grotesque" in Lusk.

Something “Grotesque” in Lusk
In architecture the term “grotesque” means a carved stone figure.
Grotesques are often confused with gargoyles, but the distinction is that gargoyles are figures that contain a water spout through the mouth, while grotesques do not. These water spouts divert rainwater away from the outside of the building to prevent water damage and staining.
We have in Lusk our very own “Grotesque”. These were decorative pieces but also said to ward off evil spirits. The Grotesque in Lusk is on the Round Tower church. The next time you are walking by look up and see if you can spot it.
