Harbison (1997, 171-6) identified a fragment of a High cross (ME019-111----) built into the stonework of St Patrick's church (ME019-060002-) on the Hill of Slane, and it was moved to the OPW depot at Newtown Trim in 1994. The interlace panel has been compared with that on crosses at Clonmacnoise and Kells suggesting a date of c. 950-1000 (Seaver and Brady 2011). Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 17 June 2015
