About

This is the only example of an Ogham Stone inscription in County Tyrone, situated 7km north of An Creggan. It is believed to have been a burial marker or commemorative inscription incised on the stone before 500AD. The inscription reads "Do Te Tto Maqi Maglant", two males named linked with Maqi which means "son of" (the earliest form of the modern Mac).
