Irish High Crosses

 

Lisnaskea

The high cross at Lisnaskea consists of the fragment of a sandstone cross, brought here from a monastery of which there is now no trace, with a fairly modern cross placed on top. The cross is now standing in the centre of the old potato market on the main street in Lisnaskea. The fragment which was part of the original shaft stands at 1.4 metres high by 55 cms in width and 46 cms deep. The east face pictured right bears iconography showing the fall of man, Adam and Eve standing under a branching apple tree. The western side of the shaft is decorated with thirty two bosses. If you are in this vicinity then I would recommend you visit this cross.
