The group of ogham stones stands around a gorse hedge. Sheep and lambs were grazing so we went away. We'll try to visit the place again in the future.


This group of ogham stones is in a private field, and the day we drove by it the field was occupied by sheep and lambs. So we didn't want to disturb them and went away, but before leaving we took a photo from outside the barbed wire fence.

UPDATE: June 26th, 2013 - As promised, we visited this place again. This time we were more successful and found the access to the field. No sheep or lambs this time, but cows and calves that came close to see who we were.
It's a group of three small and rounded stones with quite well visible ogham signs. They're next to a very low mound and are aligned south-southeast to north-northwest (160°-340°).
The stone to the south-southeast is about 60 centimetres tall and measures about 40 centimetres across. The stone in the middle has a squarer shape, with an almost flat top. It's about 80 centimetres tall and 35 centimetres wide. The north-northwest stone is about 75 centimetres tall and 38 centimetres across.
The first stone is 1.80 metres far from the middle one, which in turn is 1.70 metres far from the third one.
I think that a little more protection should be given to these stones instead of leaving them in the hands of cattle and sheep which could use them as scratching posts.
The first photo in this page is of the first visit, the other ten photos are from the visit in 2013.
