This is an exceptionally large, broad, and thin ogham stone and is shaped much like a
wedge and is found very close to the road, opposite Heathfield National school. It is
very tall, standing at 2.03m in height, 1.98m in width and is just 0.15m deep. The
inscription is faint but reads as 'Maqacto Maq Gar Maqi Mucoi Z'. The stone has been
dated by Ziegler to 550 - 700 AD and is composed of micaceous sandstone. Local legend
recalls that this was the stone of 'King Garbry Amalgaid, Prince of Tirawley'.
