St Brendan’s Cross is located on the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry. Legend has it that this cross-inscribed standing stone was erected to commemorate the adventures of St. Brendan. The Voyage of Brendan the Navigator, attained enormous fame in medieval Europe and is one of the classic adventure stories of all time, with rich elements of magic and fantasy. The Kilshannig standing stone is a slender and elegant cross-slab of the seventh century with the pleat motif at the base. The pleat is the Celtic representation of the tree of life, produced by the merging of its leaves with the scrolls, which formed its base.
