Cross Village History
The village of Cross is steeped in history and is only a short distance from the picturesque village of Cong. The area is well known for tourist attractions such as fishing as it is close to Lough Corrib and Lough Mask, lake cruises and historic sights. It is also within easy driving distance of Connemara, an area of outstanding natural beauty with a wealth of activities to enjoy.
A great battle took place between the Firbolgs and the Tuatha de Danann (ancient tribes of Ireland) on the great plain of Moytura in Cross. They played the first ever hurling match on those plains. The Firbolgs outshone that day, but the battle was won by the Tuatha de Danann. Ballymagibbon Cairn was erected to celebrate the battle.
From Christian times you can still see the ruins of St Fura's church at Ballymagibbon (7th Century). An interesting relic of this old ruin is now placed in the porch of Cross church. It is a carved stone having in relief the figure of a child.
Having completed your rambles through Cross, relax with a copy of Sir William Wilde's Lough Corrib, or enjoy the works of his son Oscar, who roamed the area as a youth while holidaying in Moytura House.
