Site Type




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.


'The third lining-stone on the eastern side'. Greenstone, 1.24m x 0.27m x 0.22m (converted from Macalister 1945, 274).


'Inscription chiselled on two angles (up-down). The beginning is chipped away: it must have contained a short name, spelt with H-consonants only. The top of the stone is also gone, and with it the middle of the second name...one score of the letter here suggested to be a T remains. ' (Macalister 1945, 274).

  • 'The Waterford name Neta-Segamonas is excluded, as it would have been preceded by MUCOI' (Macalister 1945, 274).



Re-used as the third lining stone on the eastern side of the souterrain (Macalister 1945, 274) in townland of Drumlohan and barony of Decies without Drum. (GPS coordinates -7.465370, 52.163318)
