St. Patrick’s Church, Wicklow Town.


“The two-metre high celtic-style cross stood outside St. Patrick’s Church in Wicklow Town until the late 1950s when the then parish priest Fr. Matthew Blake is believed to have taken a dislike to what he felt were pagan depictions of possibly nude female figures.”

An attempt to re-discover the stone is in progress at the moment and so far a piece of the main shaft has been recovered from under the car park but no sheelas.
