Description and History – This is a very large cross, standing well over 2m high. It is an undecorated cross that puts me in mind of the cross at Steaty in Co. Laois. It is easily missed as it is tucked away, and I nearly walked passed it. It could have been a boundary marker of some description. 

Difficulty – Easy to find and get to.

What a difference some blue skies make. These two photos were taken four years apart.
