This is probably the most detailed of all the Celtic crosses in Glasnevin cemetery. It was erected to the memory of Alexander MacDonnell FRCSI of Ballinlig, in the Glens of Antrim; a man of ancient and honourable lineage and a n accomplished physician whose whole life was devoted to the service of the poor. This monument has been erected by a large number of friends who admired his rare virtues and lamented his early loss. He is buried in Dublin.
