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 fifth lining-stone on the eastern side'. 'A lozenge-shaped block of conglomerate', 1.07m x 0.46m x 0.24m (converted from Macalister 1945, 275).

Text

'Inscription cut on two angles (up-down); in good condition, save for a slight fracture at the top, which has carried off a few easily restored strokes... There might have been other vowel-points after the final O, where there is another fracture ' (Macalister 1945, 275).
