Eventhough this Ogham stone is the biggest in Ireland it most differently is not the most prolific in writting. The stone measures 2.31 metres by 1.75 and is 0.23 thick. It is a slab of slate that either fell or was maneuvered into its flat position during the 1800s. The Ogham writing is not as clear as on many of the other stones located in Ireland. It reads CORBI KOI MAQI LABRID(…). Most of the letters are worn and some are misssing where the part of the stone was broken away.
To be honest, this stone did not leave as much of an impression on me as most of the others I have had opportunity to see. The size of the stone is impressive but for some reason, I didn’t feel that mystical energy and curiosity I always feel around Ogham. What is certan is that it is completely different from the rest of the Ogham stones I have had the opportunity to see.
Anyway, even on such a rainy an gloomy day, it was worth visiting this location and see in person this impressively large and different Ogham stone. I am looking forward to the upcoming travels and meeting the new Ogham stones, and as before, I will share my journey with you.
