Irish High Crosses



Situated in the Catholic Church in Slane, County Meath is a sandstone cross-head found buried in an old Churchyard at Fennor, Slane. This cross would have been similar in size to the cross at Duleek, also in County Meath. On presumably what would have been the west face pictured right, is a badly weathered crucifixtion scene with some unidentified figures on the right arm. I can not recommend a visit to this site as there are far better examples to be seen elsewhere.

Situated: In the Catholic Church in Slane, County Meath. From Dublin take the N2 North, the church is on your right shortly after the crossroads in the middle of Slane.
