Berrysfort Standing Stone

This tall (2.3m-high), shapely pillar stands on a small eminence, just south of the River Derg.

Berrysfort Standing Stone 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. The stone, 1.2 metres high, has been re-erected. The inscription is worn but has been interpreted as DOTETTO MAQI MAGLANI. Only seven letters are visible.

About 120 metres to the W is another, handsome (but ogamless) standing-stone about 2.2 metres high.
