The Carrowmore Crosses are located a few miles outside the village of Gleneely in co. Donegal. These national monuments date from between the c.7th – 10 centuries and are the most primitive looking of the 6 Inishowen High Crosses almost resembling standing stones.┬áThis is the site of an early monastery founded by Conas, husband of Dareaca and reputedly a sister of St. Patrick. The West Cross may date as early as the 7th century a.d has short arms and no carvings. The East Cross is taller and has carvings of a forward facing Christ figure, whose arms are concealed by a long robe and flanked on either side by an angel which appear to be whispering something into the ears of Christ. It is described by iconographers as depicting the ‘Majestas Domini’ or ‘Christ in Glory’.
