The Celtic Cross

Welcome to the Shee-Eire.com section on the Celtic Cross.  Many of these crosses date from pre-Celtic, Celtic and Celtic christian times.  The earlier crosses do not have carvings of figures or 'crucifictions' but use geometrical and interlace designs.  Some writers believe the celtic cross was the design for a navigational instrument see article, others believe it represents a depiction of the four sacred directions.
