This cross-inscribed ogham stone is now attached to the gable-end of a farmhouse
20m SE of its original location. It was found in a trench but local tradition states that
it came from a holy well further up the mountain in Ballynahunt (Windele 1848). It
measures 1.52m in height,0.42m in width,0.13m in depth and has the out-line of a Latin
cross with expanded base carved on one face and is composed of Grit. The inscription
reads " Dugennggi Maqi Roddos".
