St. Doolagh’s Cross

DSC_5433-1

This interesting cross stands right beside the main road at the entrance to St. Doolagh’s church. It is a chunky peice of stone with no sign of decoration and it sits in what looks to be a modern plinth. The Cross itself which is made from granite is not believed to been sourced in n the area and was either taken from another location or gifted to the church. There are no records of a date for the cross itself, but judging from its early Christian design, I would guess that it might perhaps date back to the time of the earlier church circa 600AD.
