Celtic cross in dromahair Sligo

1 comment:

  1. This is the Celtic high cross at Drumcliff (Droim Chliabh), Sligo, Ireland. The carvings on the cross are of Biblical scenes such as Adam and Eve and decorative motifs such as celtic knots. St. Colmcille (St. Columba) founded a monastery here. The round tower across the road and the high cross survive from the monastery. The round tower was built between 900 and 1200. The high cross may be from as late as 1100. Columcille was born in 521 and moved to Iona in 563 and died in 597
