Welcome to Shee-Eire.com section on Ogham Stones. A Ogham Stone refers to a stone often upright, inscribed in the lines and notches of the early Irish Ogham Script. Traditionally called Gallán they are sometime considered to be boundary markers and usually have inscriptions such as '...son of ...' which may be a marker for a grave.  There is much controversy over the subject of Ogham, some writers claiming that examples of Ogham can be found in Oklahoma see: http://www.viewzone.com (outside link) while others maintain that it is strictly within the early christian era of Ireland and was only used by the Irish and their colonies in Scotland and Wales.  The Irish scholar R.A.S. MacAlister has written many books on the subject.  See our Ogham writing section for more information.
