The Ballinrobe Cross is found in County Mayo, Ireland. Lillies, signifying purity of heart, grace the shaft of this lovely cross. Ballinrobe is near Lough Mask, a lake which is wide enough to produce choppy waves in rough weather. Nearby are the ruins of Inishmaina Abbey, a 13th Century Augustinian house, originally founded by St. Connan in the 6th Century. Also nearby is Cong Abbey, which was founded in about 1120 by Turlough O'Connor, High King of Ireland, on the site of a 6th Century church associated with St. Feichin.
