About this Wild Goose Cross
Oldest of the great Irish High Crosses, dating from the 7th century, this stands over 3 metres tall in Carndonagh, Co. Donegal. At the bottom of the carving there are three pilgrims, in the middle is Christ with the four Evangelists, and at the top there is a beautiful interlacing pattern, which is often used in Celtic art to suggest the ineffable.
Christ be with me, Christ be before me, Christ be behind me, Christ be within me. From St Patrick’s Prayer.
Dimensions: 8.5 x 3.5 inches (21 x 9cm)

About the Maker
Beautiful item and well made.
I was delighted to come across this unique piece right after the sudden loss of my husband. I loved the simple modern feel of the metalwork yet the strength of the message behind it. Although an appropriate gift for someone at the beginning of their marriage journey, it also holds significance for me, to remember the love and journey we all continue with those we love and who have and continue to make an impact on our journey, even beyond the physical life. Also, shipping to US from Ireland was fast and the customer service was remarkable. I appreciated the hand written note from Aidan and that this among many other pieces, come from local artists in Ireland. What a great community of talented and kind people!
Excellent product and service from Aidan. Loved the personal touches. Would definitely return as a customer when something takes my eye.
I saw this item recently in a gift shop while in Tipperary. When I returned home I searched the internet and found it at a really good price on Gifts of Ireland. It’s a wedding gift for my aunt and I know she will love it! The service was great and I highly recommend Gift of Ireland. I have already chosen other items I want to buy from them.
