Cros, Eaglais agus Cloigtheach Chluain EoisThese features were part of a monastery founded by St Tighearnach at the beginning of the 6th century. The 10th or 11th century Round Tower, the monastery's bell-tower, is the oldest surviving building on the site. Close by, in the graveyard, is a stone shrine, shaped like a church, with a worn carving of a bishop at one end. It is known as St Tighearnach's Shrine, and was probably erected in the 12th century. The head and shaft of the High Cross which now stands in the centre of the town may have come from two separate 10th century crosses. It was used to illustrate stories from the Bible to the congregation and its carved images include Adam and Eve, Daniel in the Lion's Den, the Arrest of Christ, the Adoration of the Magi, and the Crucifixion.
