Description

Site

Noted by Raftery (1969, 105) as a 'possible ringfort' but known locally as a killeen. A recent geophysical survey has confirmed the existence of an ecclesiastical enclosure (Purcell 2003, 6-8). Five other ogham stones from this site are now at Mount Melleray Cistercian monastery (CIIC 286-290).

Monument

Fragment of 'old red sandstone', 0.26m x 0.09m x 0.03m (Raftery 1969, 105).

Text

Inscription on two angles of this thin fragment. The inscription is clear but not enough survives to identify a name.
