Suggested by O'Toole (1938, 304) that it may have originally come from the nearby graveyard at Kilmagarvoge, of which no visible surface traces remain (Brindley and Kilfeather 1993, 68).


'Originally a rounded pillar of pulvinar shape, but now split longitudinally, so that the horizontal cross-section is roughly semicircular' (Macalister 1945, 20). Granite, 1.12m x 0.34m (top)- 1.02m (base) x 0.27m.


'The writing is pocked upon the middle of the rounded surface, the vowel signs being circular punched marks. There must have been two lines of writing, up-up' (Macalister 1945, 20). At least two and, possibly three, faint vowel notches of Macalister's -I (MUCC[I]) can be seen on the 3D model.







on the land of a Mr. William Hopkins, where it had been used to build up a gateway or gap in the fence by the roadside (O'Toole 1938, 304) in the townland of Tuckamine, Barony of Rathvilly. Precise location unknown.
