Inscription:

The Christian Cross is dear to the hearts of the Celtic people, ever since it first came to Ireland. The Cross was already an important symbol to the Celts, but it gained a new meaning when it gave them a new way of praying and being with the creator. The cross means more in Ireland than just the crucification. It also means the four directions. To the North lies wisdom, silence, winter and death. To the East lies rebirth, youth, spring and growth. To the South lies vitality, vigor, summer and strength. To the West lies knowledge, experience, autumn and guidance. The circle which connects them is the cycle of eternal returns of all these things. The Celtic Cross symbolizes both the love of Christ, and the ways of the ancient religion.
