This well-preserved Ogham stone stands in the grounds of Comeragh Lodge, just east
of the Comeragh mountains. Its inscription is still quite clear and reads:
'LUGUDIMAQI L...D...QA MOCOI DOMM (A)'. Lugh was a deity to the Celts, another
name used was Lugaddon, so it could be referring to a man who was thought of as a
son of the god Lugh. Of the tribes who lived around the Wexford -Waterford region,
one of was the Domnonil. With 'MAQI' meaning 'son of ' and 'MOCOI' meaning 'of
the tribe', it can be translated as such; 'Lugu son of Lugh of the tribe Domnonil'. The
stone itself stands just 1.1m tall, is 0.45m in width and is just 0.20m in depth. The
owners of the lodge informed me that the stone is not in its original position and in fact
had been moved twice before returning to its now present home.
