The ogham stone stands perfectly vertical in a small field. Seen from the south.


This ogham stone was a nice surprise, because we didn't know that it was there and it's not marked on my OS Map. We just saw it while driving past the rusty old gate that closes the access to a small private field.
It is perfectly vertical, so I may presume that it has been recently re-erected and this might be the reason why it's not on my map. The stone features clear ogham signs on its southwest (215°) edge next to the ground. Other marks all over the surface of the stone look more knife-sharpening marks. It has a squarish section though the top is rounded.
The stone is 1.28 centimetres tall, 44 centimetres wide and 35 centimetres thick at the base.
