Stations of the Cross

The fourteen Stations of the Cross are marked with their Roman Numerals in the May 2011 Map of Cemetery.

Peter Donnelly, a Building Contractor from Magheross, Carrickmacross, who also constructed the new Calvary, had the contract for the construction of the Stations of the Cross. 

The Stations were cast and erected by Joey and Johnnie Gartlan, and other plasterers from Carrickmacross.

Local knowledge indicates that the Stations of the Cross were constructed in the 1950s, and they can be viewed in the background of the 1968 photograph of Calvary
