the Killamery Cross

This 12 foot high sandstone cross is to be found in the old churchyard of Killamery (Kill means church in Ireland), close to the Callan-Clonmel road. The center section of the cross has knotwork turning into two dragons. Another set of dragons ends in a spiral. The Knotwork is a symbol of continuity and eternal life, and expresses the interconnectedness of all things.
Dragons are thought to have the knowledge of the world. They protected the earth and all its inhabitants. These creatures can also be seen as snakes. To the Celts, snakes had great healing powers, and were symbols of rebirth. Snakes are usually shown in pairs symbolizing opposing forces: Life and Death, Good and Evil, Light and Darkness.
The spiral symbolizes continuous creation and spiritual growth. The hould or Cu on top symbolizes the heroic.
