The Tau Cross in the graveyard, next to the north wall of the St. Begnet's church.


The graveyard around the ruins of the St. Begnet's church has several old gravestones. But the most interesting thing to be found in this graveyard is the Tau Cross next to the north wall of the church.
This Tau Cross is one of the four Tau Crosses in Ireland, and this is the third one that we visited. The other three are at Corofin, on Tory Island and at Kilmalkedar.
This small cross is made out of a thin stone slab, it's 55 centimetres high, 19 centimetres wide and only 5 centimetres thick. The arms open at 70 centimetres. It leans both to the north by 17° and to the west by 18°.
