The armless stump of the wayside cross.


The wayside cross at Killucan is badly worn and damaged. It stands along with two other ruined stumps of wayside crosses in a small semicircular enclosure.
The main cross is a sad armless stump, 1.38 metres tall, 30 centimetres wide at the base while it tapers to only 18 centimetres at the top, and it's 22 centimetres thick. The other two stumps are arranged in a semicircular way. In the same arrangement are a stone base and two crude stone benches.
The whole group is very neglected, the weeds are high, and dead and green branches along with the fronds of the surrounding trees invade the place. Taking photos in these conditions is almost impossible.
