The cross is a beautiful 10th century stone structure. It shows Norse and English cultural influence from its times. It is a little worn but you can still make out the biblical scenes.

The High Cross Belongs to the Ulster Group of Scripture Crosses. It comprises at least two crosses, the shaft dating from the 9th/10th century and the head from a later date. The cross shows scenes from the old and new testament. A must see
