The simple cross of Clonmore seen from the southwest.


On the other side of the road from the Clonmore cross slabs, in the churchyard, there's this white and simple cross, known with the name of Mogue's Cross. It's about 2.20 metres tall, 1.25 metres wide at its head, and 27 centimetre thick.
It faces south-southwest and leans by 7° to the west.
This cross was part of the monastery founded by St. Maedóc around 600 AD, of which no traces remain today.
