High Crosses of Inishowen

St. Mura's Cross

Mura EastMura WestThe 7th century Cross Slab measuring 1.98 metres high, is located in a graveyard in the village of Fahan, Co. Donegal, originally the site of a monastery founded in the 6th century by St. Columba. Under the abbot St. Mura, it became a seat of learning and culture and the Cross Slab is said to mark his resting place. A Greek inscription on the northern edge of the Cross Slab shows evidence of the educational sophistication of the monks. It reads  “Glory and Honour to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” which comes from the Council of Toledo of 633.

Both sides of the Cross Slab feature intertwined ribbon knotwork representing versions of the Tree of Life. With its roots on the earth and its branches high in the air it represented the connection between heaven and earth. The seasonal cycles of the tree links it with growth, death and rebirth. Formed in the shape of a cross it blends Celtic and Christian symbolism.

Taking inspiration from the east face of this unusual Cross Slab we have created striking pendants, available in 2 sizes, in silver, 18ct yellow or white gold, (18ct red gold or platinum on request).
