The cross is along the road and protected in a niche.


This cross is not marked on the OS map, and we didn't know it existed until I saw it in a screenshot of Google Street View, so I put it into my list.
It's on the west side of a small local road between the R551 and the R556.
It stands in a niche along a stone wall. The cross is quite crude and undecorated. It's aligned towards the road to the southeast (110°) and is missing its southwest arm. Allegedly it was damaged during the Black and Tans War (1919-1921).
It's 3.22 metres tall, and is 53 centimetres wide and 23 centimetres thick at its base. The arms (or what remains of them) open at 93 centimetre, but it could have had a span of 1.15 or 1.20 metres when intact.

About 90 metres east-southeast (105°) from this church is the Killahan church.
