|Description ||Standing at 2.8 metres high the The Kilnasaggart Stone thought to be one of Ireland's oldest Christian monuments is situated close to Jonesboro. This stone was originally a pagan monument which was adopted by Christians. Clearly visible is its Ogham writing and it is dated around 700 AD making it the earliest dated cross-carved stone in Ireland.This is my favorite site which i visit regularly the area around instills a calmness like an oasis.A wise old man once told me that the crosses on the back of the stone were markers for underground streams of energy which crossed and were released at this point.|
| Excellent photo. The inscription and ring-cross show up very well. Thanks for sharing.|
| This works really well - just enough light in the sky and the oblique lighting shows the inscriptions perfectly.|
