The North and South High Crosses of Ahenny are some of the earliest and finest High Crosses found in Ireland. Both crosses are skilfully carved with intricate geometric designs that have stood the test of time - carved over 1200 years ago. The crosses mimic...More

Lovely to find such a well intact historic attraction in such a picturesque location. Beautiful sight, beautiful surroundings. Nature uninterrupted. Perfect for pictures.

If any where near these Crosses are well worth a visit, you have to walk through a field but worth it. It's a lovely graveyard but some of the older gravestones have been taken away it does rather spoil the overall feel.

Hard enough to find, this is well worth the visit. Part of Ireland's hidden treasure trove lost out in the back of beyond.

The cross stand some 7 or 8eight feet tall. Both the North and South crosses are carved of sandstone.

The high crosses are amazing in many ways: their age, the workmanship and dedication to their formation, the symbolism decorating each one, and how they have stood the test of time and weathering.
