About this high cross:
Ardboe High Cross is a high cross and national monument dating from the tenth century located in Ardboe, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
The cross stands at the entrance to a monastery and a church from the seventeenth century which was founded in 590 by Saint Colman. The name "Ard Boe" means "hill of the cow" it comes from a legend that the monastery of Ardboe was built from the milk of a magic cow out of Lough Neagh.
It seems to be the only such cross in Northern Ireland to remain largely complete and original. This cross is recreated in turf for a special gift of Ireland.
