Description

Site

Souterrain discovered on removing the outer bank at NW of an Early ecclesiastical site. Ten ogham stones were used in the construction of the rectangular chamber (Moore 1999, 151, 172-3) - five as lintels, which are now removed and placed upright beside the souterrain, and five as lining stones for the sides, which are still in position.

Monument

'The eighth lintel'. Clay-slate, 1.40m x 0.39m x 0.10m (converted from Macalister 1945, 272).

Text

'Ogham chiselled on the left angle up to the top, which is fractured after the final G. The fractured portion could have held thirteen scores, all of which must have been H-consonants or vowels... The last two notches of the I in MAQI are faint ' (Macalister 1945, 272-3).
