The T-shaped monument carved from a single piece of limestone was originally located in the townland of Roughan by a stone wall close to the Corofin-Ballyvaughan road near Kilnaboy. Although worn and damaged in places, the upper face of the cross is carved by an accomplished craftsman. On it are two almost identical heads facing upwards and seem to be wearing hoods and have long straight necks.

Academics argue about its origins, some dating it to the Early Iron Age while others suggest that it is a boundary cross of Early Christian Ireland.
