Photographer's Note

Dysert O'Dea is a beautiful place, very calm, not very known, with a special ambience.

Photo represent a 12th century High Cross of Saint Tola with the ruins of monastery in the background.

As you can see, it's an impressive high cross (which stands about 4 metres high) with an imposing episcopal figure on the east face, surmounted by a crucifixion with Christ in a long robe.

Figure of a bishop with mitre and volute crozier,
representing Saint Tola - bishop in Meath, the local saint, who founded a monastery in the eighth century.
