Explanation Card Reads: This striking cross is from Roscrea, which is one of Ireland's oldest and most historic towns. The monk St. Cronan founded a monastic settlement here in the sixth century. The west facade of the 12th century St. Cronan's Abby still stands beside the Dublin-Limerick Road. Roscrea also has a 60 foot high round tower and the Roscrea castle, a 13th century anglo-norman fortress. To the south of Roscrea the gap of Devilsbit Mountain, according to folklore, was created when in a fit of anger the devil bit out a chunk. The taste was not to his liking so he spate it out. The chunk landed 22 miles away, where it formed the Rock of Cashel. The dominant design on this cross is a spiral; representing the continuous cycle of expansion and contraction of energies found in nature and in the quest for spiritual grown.
