Aghascrebagh, county Tyrone

H 623 845 - Sheet 13

Nearest village: Greencastle

This is one of the very few Ogam stones in the north of Ireland, and almost certainly a standing-stone before ogam was cut into it.

Only 1.2 metres high, the stone had fallen and has been re-erected on its little mound of stones.
The much-worn inscription has been interpreted as DOTETTO MAQI MAGLANI - of which only seven letters can now be read.
Behind it can be seen the handsome and much taller standing-stone.
