One of the ogham stones laid on the ground. The ogham marks are clearly visible.


Inside an enclosure that looks like a stone fort there are 9 ogham stones lying on the ground. They all seem to radiate from the centre of the enclosure, pointing outwards. One of the stones lies in the centre of this pattern.
The stones have no edges, and it's quite unusual because the ogham alphabet was written across the edges to give an orientation and a reference to the symbols.
Despite of it, the stones are richly inscribed and some of them have a cross inscribed on the upper face.
The stone enclosure has a diametre of about 20 metres, it's in a private land, closed by a gate and with a sign that warns visitors of a loose bull in the field.
From the gate you have to walk for 150 metres up the hill, with a rise of 10 metres.
