Since early times, the Celtic Cross has marked sacred places all over Ireland. From the shores of Lough Neagh and the cathedral city of Armagh, to the monasteries of Clonmacnoise and Monasteroice, these high crosses are powerful symbols of Christianity in Ireland. One legend tells how St. Patrick saw a pagan standing stone imprinted with a circle, the symbol of the moon goddess. He is said to have blessed the stone marking it with a Latin cross - thus creating the first Celtic Cross. The Celtic Cross pays tribute to those ancient Celts whose legacy still remains. The story continues today in those who wear a Celtic Cross. In doing so, we remember the precious heritage of Ireland. This land that has always been home to saints and scholars.
