    The Celtic Cross

    Standing tall in the landscape. Rooted in the Irish soil. And yet reaching for the sky. Since early times, the Celtic Cross has marked sacred places all over Ireland. Each one has its own tale to tell – with stories from scripture, carved in stone, preserved for future generations.  From the shores of Lough Neagh and the cathedral city of Armagh, to the monasteries of Clonmacnoise and Monasterboice, these high crosses are powerful symbols of early Christianity in Ireland.
