The location is very well maintained. The history of it and the crosses were on placards mounted around the site. It was a wonderful experience.

In a small town and a hidden gem is located on a side street. The ruins of a church wall are standing. There are several 12th century crosses.The church was unable to survive after the Great Potato Famine.

Lilfenora is today a sleepy little town, however this small ruined church was once a cathedral! Make sure you visit not only the church but the West Cross a few yards away. Well conserved by Ministry of Public Works.
