In a place called Fassaroe to the right hand side of the Dargle Road there is a stone cross about five foot, five ins. in height, with a rough figure of Our Lord carved on it.
Just behind the cross is a stone holy water-font mounted on a small stone pillar about a foot in height, and around it is an iron railings and there is also a notice asking the public to protect it.
