The fence with the taller ogham stone and the two slabs that may be parts of a tomb. Seen from the northeast. In the background, under the tree, the standing stone is visible.


The area where these two ogham stones are looks sad and depressed to me.
They're signposted and they're 50 metres southwest from the signpost. Two old-looking metal fences protects them from the cattle or the sheep.
The first one is the bigger, it measures 1.35 metres in height, 50 centimetres in width and only 15 centimetres in thickness. Next to it, on its north side, there are two shorter vertical stones that look like the side stones of a wedge tomb. Other stone fragments lie around, and they may be pieces of the capstone.
The second ogham stone is 5.90 metres further south, it's 1.25 metres tall, 45 centimetres wide and 23 centimetres thick.
Between the two ogham stones is a standing stone, with no ogham inscriptions, that is 1 metre tall, 60 centimetres wide and 15 centimetres thick.
All the alignment follows a north-south (190°) axis.
