About the Carandonagh Cross
The high cross at Carndonagh is also known as the Donagh or St. Patrick’s Cross. It is located on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal. This cross is part of a group of crosses that Peter Harbison identifies as the Northern or Ulster Group. The group includes crosses at Arboe, Armagh, Camus, Donaghmore/Tyrone, Galloon and others.
In the Northern Group, Christ is typically shown wearing “a colobium-like garment which comes to just below the knees.” [In Roman usage, the colobium was typically a sleeveless tunic.] This is true of the Carndonagh Cross, though the garment appears to have sleeves. The Carndonagh Cross is, however, different from many of the crosses in the group in having the crucifixion scene on the shaft of the cross rather than the head.
It is also typical of the Northern group of crosses for the two theives crucified with Jesus to be shown on the arms of the cross. With the crucifixion placed on the shaft of the cross that is certainly not the case with the Carndonagh Cross. It is possible, however, that the theives do appear.
