The Market Cross

The Cross was where the town market was held in the seventeenth century. The market moved to Conway Square when the market house was built in the eighteenth century. The Market Cross is the only one to be found in Ireland and is similar to those found in Scotland. It was built by the Scottish settler Sir Hugh Montgomery and can be seen today at the top of High Street.
