Redcross, has an interesting history. It was a major stopping point for horse and carts travelling from southern Ireland to Dublin. People who travelled along the East Coast of Ireland found themselves in Redcross. It became a meeting point for gossip, news ,culture and music. The village of Redcross and the town land of Barraniskey were both affected by the penal laws many years ago and in 1803 the Barraniskey church was built for people who were forced to move from Redcross. The copper coloured Cross still stands in the graveyard in Redcross to this day. This copper cross was the inspiration for our Logo.
