Ogham Stone

This granite stone caught my eye as I was searching amongst the gravemarkers, I thought it was a standing stone, it is quite common to find them in old graveyards. It turned out be an ogham stone, but the badly weathered inscription is very hard to notice. I have enhanced a few of the letters on the south-east angle, pictured above. Macalister suggests that his reading . . . RENI may be the end of a name such as MAQI-TRENI. The stone stands to the south of the high cross shaft, present in the graveyard, see Clonmore high crosses page. Harbison stone No 11, see Clonmore monastic page.

Situated: It can be found in the old graveyard at Clonmore, on the same row as the broken cross shaft. On the left as you enter the graveyard.
