About: Imagine the time involved fashioning a large Irish High Cross from Wicklow granite only to have it break while being turned over. This article looks at such a cross,
left where it was in the fields of Ballintubber near Hollywood. It’s an ill wind that doesn’t blow some good and this accident now leaves a legacy pointing to how such crosses may have been made.
