Boho High Cross

Map Reference: H112462 (2112, 3462)

The Annals of Ulster refer to an erenagh at Boho in 1483, suggesting a pre-Norman date for the site. By medieval times, it was the site of a parish church and the OS memoirs describe it as the site of an old abbey or monastery. The site is now occupied by a modern RC church and graveyard. A raised area west of the church could be associated with earlier use of the site.

The stone cross stands at the east edge of the raised area. The shaft of the cross is carved with several motifs, including interlacing and knots. The figure carving includes the Fall of Man on one side and the Baptism of Christ on the other.
