The collection of 28 Ogam stones at UCC represents the largest collection of Ogam inscriptions on open display in Ireland. In this guide Damian McManus places the stones in their literary, linguistic and archaeological context, and discusses the origins of Ogam, its distribution, execution and significance. The origins of the UCC collection are discussed, the provenance of each stone outlined and each inscription is described and carefully considered. The last detailed study of this collection, The Ogham Stones, University College, Cork by Reverend Patrick Power was published in 1932. Damian McManus now presents a new reading of the inscriptions in light of the research conducted in the intervening years. The Ogam Stones at University College Cork will be an invaluable guide for students, scholars and all those interested in Irish heritage.
Damian McManus is Professor of Irish Studies at Trinity College Dublin. He is the author of A Guide to Ogam, An Sagart, Maynooth.
