About the Mura Cross, Fahan

The 7th century Cross Slab known as the Mura Cross is said to mark St. Mura’s resting place. It measures 1.98 metres high.

This east face features intertwined ribbon knotwork representing a version 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 link it with growth, death and rebirth. Formed in the shape of a cross it blends Celtic and Christian symbolism.
