Known as the Cross of Cong this Irish Christian cross is a highlight of craftsmanship from a time when Ireland was run by Kings, and religious artefacts were prized and revered.

About the Cong Cross : When a relic of the True Cross arrived in Ireland in 1123 the Cross of Cong was created to enshrine it. The True Cross is the name of the cross on which Jesus was crucified. The Cross of Cong (Irish: An Bacall Buí, "the yellow baculum") is an early 12th-century Irish Christian ornamented cusped processional cross, which was, as an inscription says, made for Tairrdelbach Ua Conchobair (d. 1156), King of Connacht and High King of Ireland to donate to the Cathedral church of the period that was located at Tuam, County,County Galway, Ireland.
