Kilcullen South Stone Pair

I was lucky enough to spot this fine stone pair while looking for a nearby stone circle.
The two stones sit high on a rise looking down on Rylane valley.

Where once it is claimed stood four stones, now only two remain.
One of these stones has a very worn Ogham inscription (bottom image).
The inscription is said to read ' Luguduc Maqi Maqi Occi '.

The two stones are similar in size and shape with both over the 1.3 mark in height.
The wider stone of the two being  the unmarked stone.

Access - The stone pair is very easy to spot as you drive by,
Once you have negotiated the cattle gate you are left with a small climb up to the stones.
