Killashandra Cross

$40.00 USD

The people of County Cavan have a saying: There is a lake in the county for every day of the year. The area around the small village of Killashandra is a pleasure ground for boating and anglers as well as pleasant walks. The waterways were once the "highways" along which the early Celtic settlers traveled. The region was then densely forested. Their fortifications and burial sights are scattered everywhere. The cross has a triskel at the center which is a symbol of the Triune God, or the Trinity. The cap on top represents the small thatched churches of the early Celtic people. The shaft and arms are delightfully covered with shamrocks, the symbol of the Trinity and an everlasting symbol of Ireland itself.

 

Dimensions: 8" x 3"

 

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.
