What an unusual site with the two levels. Really impressive place and ogham as a bonus. Are there more souterrains like this one? thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

The standing ogham stones were removed from the roof of the souterrain and placed in concrete by the excavators. Yes, there is another example like this in Cork with 7 or 8 ogham stones used in its construction - they were all removed to various museums after excavation. This site has 15 ogham stones. The souterrain found near Tara during construction of the M3 motorway had a stone with passage tomb art. Seems like the souterrain builders valued carved/incised stones, maybe they brought ‘luck’. ryaner Posted by ryaner
