fallerOriginal Marigold Stone Carndonagh

Donagh Cross and Marigold Cross This early medieval pillar stone is located in the graveyard next to the Donagh Cross in Carndonagh, County Donegal, where a church was founded by St. Patrick in the fifth century. This site developed into a major ecclesiastical centre of learning and a place of pilgrimage.

The Marigold Stone is named after this seven petalled motif1 with a long stem or handle. It is thought to depict the Cuilebaidh, a relic of Saint Colmcille which is believed to have been a flabellum (a liturgical fan used in warm climates to keep flies away from the alter). The stem ends in two loops imitating leather thongs for hanging up the fan when not in use. Two figures are dressed in knee-length robes. The figure2 holding a drop headed staff or crozier and carrying a satchel on the right has been identified as a pilgrim. In the old Irish Annals, the expression “he took the staff ” was used to describe someone on a pilgrimage.

Marigold CrossThis cross of arcs3 which forms a Maltese cross in recess appears in carvings on many pilgrimage sites throughout Ireland. This unusual domed projection5 forms the top of the enlarged head of Christ. Early Irish representations of crucifixion focused on Christ’s triumph rather than his suffering and as clearly seen here Christ is depicted with open eyes and a broad smile. Two figures6 whose robes are emblazoned with a cross possibly depict ecclesiastical figures or saints.The Eastern Mediterranean influence is apparent in the many Greek key or maze patterns4, 8. Various crosses and motifs also feature celtic interlace7, 9. Copyright © Faller 2015.
