Donaghmore High Cross

Counties Fermanagh & Tyrone

The village of Donaghmore, 5km northwest of Dungannon on the road to Pomeroy, is famed for its 10th-century Celtic high cross. It was cobbled together from two different crosses in the 18th century (note the obvious join halfway up the shaft) and now stands outside the church graveyard. The carved biblical scenes are similar to those on the Ardboe High Cross.
