Killeen Marigold Stone

Map Reference: L757754 (0757,2754)

In the graveyard at Killeen there is a slab over 2m high by 80cm wide and 30cm thick. It features a complex incised cross about 60cm diameter. This is composed of an X-cross with expanded ends. The quadrants of this cross are filled by the arms of a quadrifoliate cross and both are enclosed by a double circle. This arrangement is commonly called a marigold. The carving is quite shallow and obscured by lichen.
