Overview

Tynan is a small village to the west of Armagh. It appears that there was once an early Christian settlement on the spot where the parish church now stands. Two of these four crosses are thought to be indigenous, the two others have probably been imported from elsewhere. The crosses are named as follows: the "Village Cross", the "Terrace Cross", the "Well Cross" and the "Island Cross". Unfortunately, only the Village Cross is accessible to the public. It is made up of at least two crosses and was restored in the 19th century. The cross head is decorated with prominent circular bosses. Near the base of the cross one can see a carving of the temptation of Adam and Eve. The Village Cross is thought to date back to the 10th century.
