    Muiredach’s Cross in Monasterboice, Ireland dates back to the 10th century. Regarded as one of the finest examples of Celtic high crosses, this cross has intricate ornamentation on all sides, depicting scriptural stories from the Old and New Testament. The stone cross is 18 feet high, and takes its name from the inscription at the bottom of the shaft -- OR DO MUIREDACH LASERNAD IN CHROS -- a prayer for Muiredach for whom this cross was made.
