The stile in the wall. This is the access to the path to the ogham stones.


At Greenhill there are two beautiful ogham stones. One is now along a boundary hedge between two fields, the other one is free standing in the next field. It wasn't easy to find them, no signposts tell visitors where they are, and weren't it for a kind man who phoned around to have directions, we would have never found them.

The ogham stone in the hedge is broken and as a consequences the inscription is incomplete. The ogham inscription is on the northeast (65°) edge and reads "CATTUBUTTAS MAQ..."
The excavations around the stone to install the protective cattle grid didn't reveal any graves or other finds. The stone is also protected by a run of barbed wire and a run of electrified fence. It's set in a paved base.
The stone is 1.66 metres tall, 44 centimetres wide and 41 centimetres thick at the base. The stone tapers to the top.

Greenhill stone south is 40 metres south from this one, in the next field.
