A place of interest to those who want to see one of the oldest Celtic crosses in Ireland Much visited but sadly ignored by locals and not given the profile it deserves by the tourist board

Interesting carved cross believed to date from the 7th century, located by the roadside outside Carndonagh. The cross and two tablets are under a protective structure. Well worth a stop if you are passing through Carndonagh.

Interesting archaeological site in the village, no fee to enter, with old church yard adjacent with more items to see. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Local info panel gives history of the cross.

Beautifully decorated crosses, but difficult to photograph. There is another cross in the graveyard which is well worth visiting.

Easy to miss. it's along the road but not really sign-posted exactly. it is covered. there's parking right next to it. it's ok and worth a quick stop as it is important historically.

Thank rebeljenn
