Standing at the crossroads at the top of town, this high cross shows several Biblical scenes in its panels. In 2011, a replica was placed in the cemetery behind the cross and gives a nice look at how the carvings may have looked centuries ago. Also within the cemetery, the O’Neill Monument is worth a peek as is the sign labeling final resting place each of the graveyard’s residents.

The Church of St Patrick across the street has a few nice stained glass windows, but the the real draw is the unusual “cartoonish” Stations of the Cross images.
