Ardmore Ogham Stone

These two fifth century Ogham stones are in the remains of St Declan's Cathedral. St Declan lived in the late fourth and early fifth centuries. On the west of the site is a twelfth century round tower of about one hundred feet in height. The two Ogham stones have inscriptions; the one standing at about four feet high is in an arch shaped niche in the choir and the script is a dedication to 'Lugaid' and the other in the northwest corner stands taller and translates 'the beloved'.

Getting there

The site is southwest along the N25 from Waterford/Port Láirge and Dungarvan. Take the R673 to Ardmore and then on towards Ram Head. Close by is also St Declan's Holy Well.
