Oghma is credited with creating the system of writing known as 'Ogham' which the Bards and Aos Dana (the intelligentsia) used to communicate in written form and also in signs - a series of strokes against a straight object such as a nose, arm, leg and they could converse with each other without the knowledge of the uninitiated.
Oghma was killed by Indech the Fomorian at the Battle of Magh Tuiredh.
