English term or phrase: "double-armed cross built into its west gable", "True Cross"
The church at Killinaboy is the only example in the whole of north-western Europe with a
double-armed cross built into its west gable - perhaps indicating the former presence there of a reliquary of the True Cross.

una cruz patriarcal (de Caravaca) erigida en su aguilón noroccidental


Explanation:
¡Hala, toma frasecita! Hola, el primer enlace habla sobre el escudo húngaro donde se muestra una cruz patriarcal que tiene dos brazos. Si mal no recuerdo, la Francia de De Gaulle (o antes) también utilizó la mismita cruz (de cuyo nombre no puedo acordarme). Quizás algún normando ya la tenía en su blasón y la exportó a Killinaboy (¿Matanduniño?!). También llamada "de Caravaca" (Enciclopedia Herder) y como veras en el segundo enlace. "Gable" puede traducirse por "aguilón" o "gablete". Las dos me encantan pero tú decides. Te ofrezco "erigida" en vez de "construida", aunque ésta no esté mal, me suena pobre, una cruz es como un monumento, se erige como recordatorio. True Cross es la Cruz Verdadera o Veracruz, también en el segundo enlace: "La Cruz de Caravaca... El regalo de la imagen de la Vera Cruz (Cruz Verdadera), es una costumbre generalizada
en Caravaca desde al menos el siglo XVI...". Salut i bona tradu :-)
