High crosses (sometimes referred to as standing crosses) are dated back to Irish and British origins. At Kilkieran, County Kilkenny, three of the earliest high crosses can be found. It is said that they date to the 9th century; two of them are ringed ‘Celtic crosses’ and have a capstone. The third is unique; it is very thin and is lacking a ‘ring.’ The crosses are located at Kilkieran Cemetery, north of Carrick-on-Suir.
Also onsite, was a holy well dedicated to St Kieran.
