Two stone crosses are in the foreground, the third one stands beyond the wooden stile at the field boundary.


Three very old stone crosses are at the same spot. They are very simple, cut out of thin stone slabs, with short arms and a rough shape.
They must have been part of the rounds during the pilgrimage to the St. Brendan's Holy Well nearby.
Two of them, those that I have named northern and southern cross, are very close to the well, the other one, that I have named eastern cross, is on the other side of a field fence, but easily reachable via a wooden stile.
The northern and the eastern one have incised cross marks on one of their faces.
Judging by the shape and the cutting these three crosses are contemporary and might date to the 7th century.
The coordinates for this page refer to the southern cross.
