Crosses -  Monuments of County Clare

Kilfenora High Cross


Most of the carved stone crosses in Ireland can be called high crosses. These typically are tall crosses with a circle surrounding the junction of the horizontal and vertical shafts, and are decorated with carved panels depicting Biblical scenes. Clare contains some beautiful examples of carved crosses, most notably the 12th century high crosses at Kilfenora and Dysert O’Dea.
