An Bóthar Buí

The original provenance of this stone is not recorded (see KE000-002----). It formed part of Lord Ventry's collection and now lies on the verge of the driveway leading to Coláiste Íde.

Burnham West


It measures 1.06m long x c. 1.14m in circumference.


Macalister (1945, 167-8, no. 175) read the inscription as: MAQQI-ERCCIA MAQQI MUCOI DOVINIA and noted that this stone resembles the Ballintaggart group.

Many of the scores are extremely faint and only the last word can now be traced in full. (Cuppage 1986, no. 799)
