A 10th century cross situated on a rocky height on the shores of Lough Neagh. It is a national monument, which is believed to be the first high cross of Ulster. The cross stands 18.5 feet high and 3.5 feet wide. Its 22 panels depict various biblical scenes. Local legend has it that the cross was built with the help of a ‘magic cow’ which stepped out of the Lough and provided workmen with lashings of cream, milk and butter for as long as they needed it.
