Ballintaggart Ogham Stones

Map reference: V464996 (0464, 0996)

At Ballintaggart, within a small cashel-like structure, are nine cigar-shaped sandstone boulders with Ogham inscriptions. Four of the stones have incised crosses. The enclosure is an old graveyard and there is a great deal of small stones as well as some larger grave markers.

The walls of the enclosure are not very thick and the diameter is about 30m. It is marked on some maps as the site of a church but there are no traces of a building. The stones have been collected from various locations in the vicinity of the enclosure.
