Crossmorris, Cross Base, Co. Kildare.

Location – About three miles W of Co. Kildare and one mile E of Lackagh More church.
OS: N 694 127 (map 55)
Longitude: 6° 57' 42.47" W
Latitude: 53° 9' 36.44" N

See map at the bottom of the page.  

Description and History – This site is very sad.  The base has been shoved under a hedge in a lay-by on the side of the road and has seemingly been forgotten about. It really wouldn’t take much to relocate it to Lackagh More which isn’t far away.  This cross base is a very odd shape and is a sort of parallelogram.  The hole for the cross is small and it is hard to imagine what kind of cross it would have accommodated.    

Difficulty – Easy to get to but I would imagine during the summer months the hedge really swallows it up.
