  • Croes Hir
    The first free-standing shaped crosses appeared late in the 7th century. Early examples were carved as cross heads on a pillar, or with minimal protrusion of the horizontal member, well supported by the circle, as shown in our Croes Hir, or Long Cross. Later crosses developed intricate ornamentation, with scriptural stories, such as our Muiredach's Cross, which has full ornamentation on the front, back and sides of the cross.
