Ogham script is an early form of Old Irish and the first known Irish
writing. The characters comprise a series of lines and notches that
are scored across a long stem-line often on standing stones. In the
majority of cases the inscription is read from the bottom up, and
usually names the person being commemorated along with their ancestors
and the carver of the inscription
Over 350 Ogham stones are known, with the majority found in southern
Ireland from Kerry to Waterford and in South Leinster. They also occur
in small numbers in western Scotland, the Isle of Man, and in Cornwall
at Lewannick, where Irish settlers from Munster landed and founded
communities. While the stones in Ireland are written purely in Ogham,
those in Britain often have the Ogham inscription repeated in Latin
carved in Roman characters on the same stone.
In legend Ogham was said to have been created by Ogma, the son of
An Dagda. Ogma was both a warrior and the god of eloquence and literature,
and fought the second battle of Magh Tuireadh where he slew the Formi,
Indech, son of the goddess Domnu.
