Ogham Stone

Situated in the centre of Donard, County Wicklow, is this rectangular block of stone bearing an ogham inscription. The stone is about 1.5 metres high and the inscription reads,


The megalith originally stood on a farm close to the village and was later moved to the garden of the civic guards barracks, which is now a private house.

See also Knickeen ogham stone.

Situated: In the centre of Donard, because of its present situation and its shape this megalith gives the impression of being a modern garden feature and indeed the first time I visited I drove past it. See also Knickeen ogham stone close by.
