High Crosses in Ireland

Tall stone crosses with decorative carving. High crosses are Ireland’s greatest contribution to European sculpture of the first millennium. These crosses were erected at monasteries to edify and teach both monks and laity through biblical representations carved on many of them. High kings helped commission them from the ninth to the twelfth century. Fine examples are found at Moone (County Kildare), Monasterboice (County Louth), Kells (County Meath), Clonmacnoise (County Offally) and Cashel (County Tipperary).
