Lamogue Ogham Stone

The oldest form of the written Irish language

In 1891, 2 Ogham Stones discovered in now unused graveyard and are dated between 400-900 AD.

3 km from Windgap – both stones of greenish sandstone found in the local area.

Ogham Stones are typically standing stone on which short marks are made in groups of between one or five notches, usually on the edge of the stone.

Each group signifies a sound in old Irish, and they are the oldest surviving written form of the language dating from the end of the 4th up to the early 9th century AD.
