The original Ballina cross is found in Co. Tipperary, Ireland.
This delightful cross comes from the heart of Ireland and the town of Ballina, where the Shannon River leaves Lough Derg and rushes toward the city of Limerick and then the ocean. The descending dove is a reference to the Bible verse, Mark 1:11, “And when Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens split open and the Holy Spirit descending like a dove on him.” The cross is entirely covered with a lovely design of grapes, lilies and ivy.
Your order is accompanied by a short history and the meaning behind the designs in this cross.
