The "Doorty" Cross and the "North" Cross, Kilfenora
The "Doorty" Cross and the "North" Cross, Kilfenora
The "Doorty" Cross formerly stood out in the churchyard R1893 : The "Doorty" Cross, Kilfenora but is now housed under a canopy within the Cathedral ruins. The figure of a bishop dominates the head of the cross. In the centre of the shaft are two ecclesastics both holding croziers. The bases of the croziers rest on a bird or winged beast which stands on the heads of two human torsos.

Also visible is the "North" Cross which unlike the other Kilfenora High Crosses does not have a ringed head.
