Killamery High Cross

Map Reference: S375360 (2375, 1360)

St Goban Find is said to have founded a monastery at Killamery.

There is a very fine High Cross with curvilinear ornamentation and a finial. There are also some figured scenes and some intertwined beasts.

It has been dated to the 9th century.

Beside it is a large bullaun stone and a boulder with a 20cm wide perforation. There is also a small perforated stone and a good cross-inscribed slab. In the adjoining field is a holy well.
