Ferns Cross - 222
Once the seat of the kings of Leinster, Ferns was burned and looted time and time again so there is very little left. What is left, however, is intriguing, especially, the ruins of the cathedral with its tower and 13th century roofless chancel, and the surviving round tower of the castle. Today's castle, with its moat and 8 foot thick walls, now ruined, was begun in the early 1200's. The fleur-de-lis, a stylized annunciation lily and therefore associated with the Virgin Mary.

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.
