I took a stop here to view these crosses. This place was built in the 6th century by St.Buithe.
It was later plundered and everything stolen. All that remains are some ruins and these high crosses.
They’re very Byzantine and iconic in nature specifically because they tell a story.
Every painting weather eastern or western tells a story but these resemble the artwork of the east and the manner in which they would have expressed a story. It also looks very Coptic in nature.
They say that the Celtic people came from Galatia which is modern day Turkey. This may explain the eastern influence.
