History of Recording

Rescued by Macalister from the wall of Rathcanning fort. Macalister (1945, 82) also recorded that this was the original location of a second ogham stone (CIIC 79). However, Barry (1897, 79-80) records that it came from another souterrain (CO066-00054---) in the next field 'a quarter of a mile south of Rathcanning fort' where 'an underground pasage, and an underground beehive-shaped chamber, were discovered'.
