The stone cross seen from the southeast. A faint bas-relief can still be seen between the arms of the cross.


In the graveyard of the St. Finian's church, among other tombs, there's a nice and plain stone cross.
On both faces there's a bas-relief. They're badly weathered but it's still possible to make them out as scenes of the crucifixion. They measure about 20 centimetres across.
The stone cross is bound in a concrete base, it is 1.67 metres tall, its arms are 62 centimetres wide and it's 25 centimetres thick.
The ruins of the old church are 25 metres northeast, attached to the more modern church dedicated to St. Finian.
