A splendid example of early Christian art and craftsmanship, these 8th century High Crosses are ornately carved with intricate Celtic designs. The base of each cross has carved figures depicting Biblical scenes including Daniel in the Lion’s Den and Adam naming the animals. Both crosses are made of sandstone and stand over 3m high.

The Ahenny crosses are part of the Ossory group of High Crosses; Ossory was an ancient kingdom which straddled Tipperary and Kilkenny. Situated to the east of Slievenamon Mountain, about 8km north of Carrick-on-Suir, Ahenny High Crosses are located in Kilclispeen graveyard.
