The inscription on the stone above reads



Ogham Stones

In 1867 a farmer discovered a souterrain, an artificial cave, in one of his fields, he discovered that ogham stones were built into the walls and roof of the souterrain and in 1936 part of the cave was dismantled and some of the ogham stones re-erected above ground.

The picture above shows the souterrain and three of the standing ogham stones.This is a really wonderful site and I would strongly recommend a visit.

The stone on the right bears the insciption 'MANU MAGUNO GATI MOCOI MACORBO'.


The stone pictured left reads 'CALUNOVIC MAQI MUCOI LIT......'.
