You’ll find this trio in north Donegal. The Carndonagh High Cross has been dated to the 7th century – making it one of the oldest in the country. It has been engraved with a mixture of Celtic interlacing and Christian iconography. The two small pillars are also decorated – with what is believed to be David with his harp and a large warrior, possibly Goliath.
Now we move across to the east of the country. There we find fabulous trios on the beautiful high crosses in the monastic settlement of Monasterboice.

Wow, these are amazing! To see such lovely detail in something so old 😮
Considering they have been exposed to the elements for so long, they are in remarkable condition…
Lovel architecture, I really love all the detail in the crosses.
Imagine the expertise needed to produce something like that in those days….
Love the crosses. 😊
There are quite a few scattered throughout the countryside – we’re actually inclined to take them a bit for granted!
Yup, that is a natural tendency for us all. We get so used to the things around us that we stop noticing. 😊
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed….
