The cross has a big round head and short arms. On its east-northeast face there's an inscription.


In the graveyrad at Kilmore Upper there's this nice slab cut in the shape of a cross with a big round head and short arms. On its east-northeast (75°) face there's an inscription that reads "Here lieth the body of Briuserdan (?) who died the 11th day of November 1680".
The other face has interlaced patterns on the head and across the arms.
It's 73 centimetre high, 34 centimetres wide at the arms, 21 centimetres wide at its base and 15 centimetres thick.
