LAUGHANSTOWN OLD CROSS IN NEARBY FIELD

LAUGHANSTOWN OLD CROSS [IN FIELD]


Tully church and crosses situated in Laughanstown are association with St Bridget who died in 523 AD.

In the field opposite the church is a tall slender cross dating from the 12th/13th century. The east face of the cross bears a badly worn ecclesiastic figure that could be a bishop but some experts think it may be a female figure and believe it to be of St Bridget. The opposite face, also badly weathered, features a head/mask.

Access over a wooden fence appears to be getting more difficult every time I visit. High heels are not recommended.

Some guides describe access as being over a stile but what is there is nor a stile as there are no steps.
