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

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.

If you want to see the real Ireland, travel around this area. I go to this site on a regular basis. Make sure you take in Tullahought along the way.
