The stone is broken in two halves.


We didn't know of this ogham stone.
The landowner at the Ballyvoyle standing stone directed us here. Anyway we would have never reached it without the help and the guide of the landowner of this other field. He guided us up here, walking along dirt paths and crossing cattle gates and electrified fences.
The ogham stone is very well tucked away.
It lies in the grass next to a hedge and unfortunately it's broken in two. Originally it was in the centre of the field, that in turn is within a ring fort, but a storm knocked it down and broke it about 100 years ago, so it was moved to the edge of the field.
Currently it's aligned southeast-northwest (160°-340°), it's 1.80 metres long and 45 centimetres wide. The ogham inscription is well visible.
