|Located in their own small enclosure,these two ogham stones are accompanied by a
large decorated boulder. The ogham pillar has been likened to the pillar in Gallerus
Oratory,suggesting that its inscription is magical rather than to commemorate a
person. The pillar is 0.90m in height and is cylindrical in shape with an ogham
inscription that reads "LMCBLTCL LT".The small fragment beside it has little
inscription left but reads "V MAQI".The boulder has spirals on the bottom half of one
side but are very faint. It measures 1.6m in height, 1m in width and is 0.45m in depth.
A very nice collection and well worth a visit.
