On the other side of the town from the Ferns castle, there is the Ferns Cathedral in which churchyard there are three crosses.
They are plain crosses, with no important decorations.
The first one is 2.60 metres tall, 1.20 metres wide and 30 centimetres thick, and the face is aligned west (264°).
The second cross is 27 metres north-northeast (12°) from the first one, it's 2.40 metres tall, 1.20 metres wide and 30-35 centimetres thick, and its face is aligned west (260°).
