The Cross of Clogher in Co. Mayo Ireland, represents a later period of Christianity. It is an oak cross completely encased in bronze. The bronze panels which are riveted on the wood are richly decorated with Christian iconography. The topmost panel depicts a crucifixion scene in high relief with angels on either side.
The cross dates to between the 12th and 14th centuries and is a fine example of Irish ecclesiastical art. The back of the cross is much plainer and is composed of a series of individual panels decorated in a repeated geometric design.
