Close to Mr Davidston's house Donard near the garden stands a Granite Stone about 5 feet. This is a square pyramid and is clearly marked with OGHAM characters.

The stone is about 5 feet in perimeter. It was brought to Donard Demesne about 40 yrs since, from the lands of the late Mr Thos Metcalfe of Ballylion by the late Rev Patrick Kavanagh cc Hollywood who was curate at Donard at the time of the removal.
(This was told to me by Mr Denis O'Toole P.C. Newtown and Mr John Metcalfe Ballylion, Donard.)
