- Celtic Cross: Slane Abbey Cross of Ireland in Cast Stone
Replica of Ireland's Slane Abbey Cross, hand-cast in stone composite; 8 1/2" x 4 1/4"; Item CR-SLAN
The Irish Wake offers gorgeous stone Celtic crosses that are detailed replicas of magnificent crosses dotting the landscape of Ireland,
at cathedrals, abbeys, and other sacred places.
This is a replica of the Slane Abbey Cross.The dramatic original of this quaint cross can be found among the ruins of the Franciscan friary Slane Abbey in County Meath. It features graceful vines of shamrocks and a heart at its center. Along the sides of this cross are the words of a traditional Irish blessing: “May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks.”
Its smaller size is ideal for placement in the casket.
Authentic to the tiniest detail, this cross is cast by hand in a composite stone material, and has a beautiful antique patina.
The cross measures 8 1/2" high and 4 1/4" wide and has a hanger on the back.
These sturdy, substantial crosses are the perfect accompaniment to an Irish funeral memorial service,
whether hung on the wall, placed on or in the casket, decorating the podium, or
displayed amongst the flowers.
Afterwards, a cross is a touching remembrance for
Irish families to display at home as a
lasting tribute to their departed loved one.
