Celtic Crosses in Dublin

Celtic Crosses in Dublin

Postby Blisterman » Sun Dec 26, 2010 8:20 pm

Celtic crosses are found in nearly every town in Ireland Usually as part of a memorial. But I can't think of any in Dublin. Are there any freestanding celtic crosses in Dublin other than those in churchgrounds and cemetaries?

There's one in Kiltiernan and another in Laughanstown. They're the only ones I can think of.

This raises an issue we have all these architecture foundations/media outlets/public bodies but not one of them promotes indigenous architecture. So do we need another one?

Has indigenous Irish architecture been lost in modernity and part m?

Should 20% of all renovations/builds be indigenous?

expect more of the same...

Sorry is not good enough now that architects have access to 4 axis

One in Blackrock, Co. Dublin; marked the boundary of monastic lands. Was moved by a few metres some years ago to accomodate a new traffic plan. Another one in Foxrock / Loughlinstown is Tully Cross.

Sure wasn't Dublin a bit of a backwater ;)
