DINGLE Description

The flattened upper surface of this boulder, 1.1m long, bears a plain Latin cross and a natural fissure continues the line of its shaft down the centre of the stone. The ogham inscription reads: N(E)TTA-LAMINACCA KO(I) MAQQI MUCOI DO(VINIAS). The 1st E is no longer traceable but there is sufficient space for the relevant notches. The final notch of the 2nd I is also gone but was noted in earlier accounts. Only the first 2 letters of the final word are clear but Macalister (1945, 156-7) claimed that, apart from the vowels IA, it could be entirely deciphered.
