Kilshannig Cross-inscribed Stone

Map Reference: Q625195 (0625, 1195)

Inside the small ruined church at Kilshannig stands a cross-inscribed slab. It is 1.42m tall with a maximum width of 42cm and 26cm thick. The Latin cross inscribed on the south face has expanded terminals with the base having an elaborate spiral termination. Just to the right of the head of the cross is a small crescent or loop, which may be a representation of the chi-rho symbol.

Near the top of the north face is a small Latin cross with expanded terminals. The right arm is now missing.
