The Emery Celtic Cross, Killea, Co Donegal, Gareth Wray Photography

This giant 100 meter long cross is known as the “Emery Celtic Cross” which is proudly named after its creator Liam Emery. Intelligently he planted two different species of pine trees in the shape of this giant celtic cross design almost ten years ago in these woods of Donegal. The reason being that the outer trees are evergreen and don’t drop their needles in Autumn but the trees used for the actual cross design are not evergreen and turn this golden colour right before they drop their needles for the cold seasons ahead.
