Reference (2001)

Church 'of the three holy brethren', incorporating considerable medieval fabric. Both stones are in the church.

(1) Fragment of pillar of sandstone, 0.42m by 0.16m and 75mm to 115mm thick; much worn and damaged by knife-cuts. One face (b) bears two lines of irregular incised letters in alphabetic order, including B, D, E, ?F and ?K, L, M, N. Edge (c) bears traces of other letters, although only DO are legible, and an ogham inscription composed of a horizontal stem-line 0.19m long with groups of short transverse scores. Dr K Forsyth suggests the reading [?h]MUD[?]ALI[?], which may represent an Irish personal name such as 'Mod-Magli' or 'Mu-Dali'. (Forsyth 1996, 374-84).
