TEMPLEBRYAN NORTH OGHAM STONE, COUNTY CORK
This tall ogham stone,is a needle-like pillar measuring 3.3m in height, 0.36m in width
and 0.3m in depth. It is located in the north half of an enclosure which also contains a
ruined oratory and graveyard.  The packing stones are exposed around the denuded
base and there is the faint outline of a small incised cross with expanded terminals on
the west face. The weathered ogham inscription is on the NW corner and it reads as
"
ANM TENAS MACI V". Both cross and inscription are so low down on the stone,that
they have almost certainly been added to a pre-existing Bronze age megalith. The
ogham has been dated by Ziegler to 550 - 900 AD. There is a bullaun stone 1.4m east at
Templebryan North.
