The cross seen from the field where the other Laughanstown cross is.


On the northeast side of a narrow lane in the townland of Laughanstown there's a stone cross set onto a stone and concrete plinth. It is said that it was placed in this position by James F. Grehan in 1897 when the road was lowered. Grehan had this plinth built in order to keep the cross at the original position and height.
The plinth can be climbed via a set of narrow and steep steps on the southeast side of it.
The cross is 2.24 metres tall, the arms are 94 centimetres wide, the shaft measures 36 centimetres in width and 20 centimetres in depth. The plinth is about 4.40 metres in height. It faces the road to the west (275°).
About 100 metres down the same lane is the Tully church, and in the field across the lane to the south is the other Laughanstown cross.
