This cross inscribed ogham stone can be found in the grave-yard of the medieval
parish church of Ballinvoher. It is standing upright against the west end of a modern
tomb near the east side of the grave-yard. It measures 0.94m in height,0.27m in width
0.12m in depth and is composed of sandstone grit. Although the ogham inscription has
suffered some damage and some of the scores have completely disappeared, it reads
" Sidani Maqi Dala". The west face of the stone is inscribed with a cross-in-circle,the
stem extends below to form the shaft of another cross. Above the main cross is a faint
plain cross which may be earlier than the other two. 40m to the west is
Rahduff II.
