This is the site of a monastery near the birthplace of Saint Columba, also called Columbcille, in Gartan, Donegal, Ireland. More about St. Columba (Columbcille) is at http://ns2.rsok.com/columcille_and_druids.html. The cross may have been a boundary marker and is now a stop for pilgrims. I also photographed this ancient cross in 2004. Gartan Lough (Gartan Lake) is in the background. The burial ground here is still in use.
