Tully Church and High Crosses

Tully Church and High Crosses

East Ireland | County Dublin

Remains of Tully Church are located in Laughanstown near Cabinteely, on southern suburbs of Dublin. The site consists of ruined medieval church and two stone high crosses and is reputed to be dedicated to St. Bridget. The exact date of construction of first church in this place is unknown but the remains of foundation of the early nave may be from 9th century or older. The chancel, divided from the nave by fine arch was added in late 12th or early 13th century, and is unusual that it is wider than the nave. Tully Church with its lands was donated to Christ Church in Dublin by Sitric Mac Torcaill, shortly after Anglo-Norman invasion and continued to be used until beginning of the 17th century. Approaching the church, on the left hand side of the road you will find the granite ringed cross (2.3 m high) seated on a massive stone pedestal, probably dating from the 10th century. The top of the cross is shaped into gabled roof. The second granite high cross (incomplete on one side), dating from 12th century is located in the nearby field, the north-west to the church. It's 2.2m high and it has a figure of bearded bishop carved on one side, and on the other side there are strong raised mouldings outlining the cross, with a faceless head at the intersection of the arms. From the site there are wonderful views of Killiney Hill and Irish Sea to the east, and Dublin Mountains to the west.
