The group of ancient slabs in the far corner of the old graveyard.


In this old graveyard you can see a beautiful group of cross slabs and grave slabs. There are 18 cross and grave slabs, and the head of what once was a high cross, known as the West Cross or the Mission Cross.
All the slabs and the cross face east.
The whole graveyard is rich in old graves and a visit is well worth it.
This graveyard was part of the monastery founded by St. Maedóc around 600 AD, of which no traces remain today.
