Cross of Cong at the National Museum of Ireland Archaeology in Dublin. Ireland vacation.
Exquisitely created to house a fragment of the True Cross in 1123, this shrine was kept in the Augustinian Friary at Cong, County Mayo, for centuries. A mix of early Celtic style decoration and Viking styles of the 11th and 12th century, the Cross of Cong is just one of the treasures at the National Museum of Archaeology in Dublin.
