Situated to the east of Slievenamon Mountain, about 5 miles north of Carrick-on-Suir, the Ahenny High Crosses are located in Kilclispeen graveyard. 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 3 metres high. Located close by are the Kilkieran High Crosses from the 9th century and are between 2.8 & 3.5 metres high. The West Cross is probably the most similar to the Crosses located in Ahenny. Beautiful paintings of the crosses are currently on display in the windows of a store located on the Main Street in the town.
