RUSHEENS EAST OGHAM STONE
A quiet small ogham stone,only 1.26m in height,0.43m in width and 0.33m in depth. It
is composed of Schist and had previously been a 'kneeling stone' on a dwarf  wall
surrounding a well dedicated to St. Mobhi. It now stands beside a deserted cottage on a
low altar-like structure north of the well in the county of  
Mayo.  It has been dated by
Ziegler to 400 - 500 AD and reads "Alattos Maqi Br - -". The last few letters have been
broken away by the masons that built it into the wall of the well.
