The collection of 28 Ogam stones at UCC represents the largest collection of Ogam inscriptions on open display in Ireland. The stones here exemplify several of the features commonly associated with Ogam stones, such as variety in site of discovery, the execution of the inscriptions, the types of names recorded, the formulae used, the size of the stones, linguistic features, and relative date. In this guide Damian McManus places the stories in their linguistic and archaeological context, and discusses the origins of Ogam, its distribution, execution and significance.
The origins of the UCC collection are discussed, the provenance of each stone outlined and each inscription is described and carefully considered.
