Religious Sites Abbey of County Kildare

Ballymore Eustace is situated on the river Liffey, near the Wicklow border. Close to the site of an old Protestant church is the present day St. John’s Church of Ireland which was built in 1820. It houses a FitzEustace effigy dated to the early sixteenth century and an ancient font.

Ballymore Eustace High Crosses
In the graveyard there are two high crosses, one of which is damaged. The cross that is intact is not perforated and is embossed in deep relief.

There is an inscription on the cross, which is dated 1689 and reads that the cross was erected by A.M. Wall. However this is believed to be a much later addition than the actual cross.
