Enniskillen Cross

$41.00 USD

Enniskillen occupies an island between Upper and Lower Lough Erne. Also named Inis Ceithleann after the wife of a chieftain, Balor of the Mighty Blows. The river system of the Erne at one time was a major highway for goods and transportation. The highlands running parallel to the Erne has many artifacts of early people who lived the area, such as chambered graves. The shamrock, or in Irish, Seamrog, is considered a good-luck symbol in Ireland since early times. It is also the national emblem of Ireland because, according to legend, Saint Patrick used the shamrock to represent the Holy Trinity and is worn on Saint PatrickÍs Day each year. The knotwork running along the outer circle represents everlasting life.

Due to the hand casting and proprietary staining process, each of my plaques is unique. Each cross comes with a hanger embedded in the stone. The cross comes with a descriptive tag describing the original stone, explanation of the design or information on where the cross is located.
