mooghaun-hoard - 100 Objects

12. Mooghaun Hoard. A little under 3,000 years ago someone in Ireland was very, very rich. In March 1854 a ganger ordered some navvies working on the construction of the West Clare Railway near Newmarket-on-Fergus to straighten a dyke running close to the small lake of Mooghaun. They shifted a stone and found a small rough chamber with a flagstone on top. When they opened it they uncovered the largest hoard of Bronze Age gold objects ever found in western or northern Europe.

What’s most interesting about this cross is that it was given to the Franciscan friary at Lislaghtin, Co Kerry, by Cornelius Ó Conchobhair and his wife, Avilina (Eileen), daughter of the Knight of Kerry. It marks a new prominence of high-status women in 15th-century Ireland.
