About a hundred yards from our house there is a huge atone about three feet long and a foot and a half in width. There is writing on it like little crosses. No one could (red) read the writing. A few years ago some busy body broke the top part of the atone, and it is left up against the wall. Thegh the ogham is on it all the time. It is supposed that a lame soldier was burried beneath it.
