An incredible image of a Celtic Cross can be seen from the sky above the forest in Co Donegal, with the symbol being created by different species of trees planted in perfect formation.
The stunning vision is the legacy of late horticulturist Liam Emmery. The Celtic Cross in an ancient Irish symbol surrounded by myth and mystery. So it seems fitting that Liam chose the Celtic Cross as the symbol for his creation.
Passengers and staff on flights heading in and out of Derry Airport have often reported the unusual vision, and some investigation led back to Liam Emmery.
Liam died in 2010 after a long period of illness, and up until a few years even his family knew little about his ambitious and imaginative project. He planted the trees across an area spanning 100m long and 70m wide, and it was only recently thanks to the dry weather conditions, that the incredible creation come fully to life.
Liam’s widow Norma said: “He just loved things to be perfect and I think the Celtic Cross is perfect for him.”
A paramotor enthusiast has also paid tribute to Liam with a birdseye video of the Celtic Cross formation. Take a look here.
