Book Description

30 Mar 2004 University Heritage
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 Rev. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small but interesting 30 Dec 2010
By Christopher R. Travers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very short (a mere 22 pages) but manages to cram in a brief introduction to the study of Ogham and a tour of the stones in question along with notes about how the carvings were done, in what direction, adding transcriptions, etc.

The introduction is helpful even for one who has read Guide to Ogam. It includes a basic overview of the phonetics of the script along with a list of names. The condensed information is all in one place and serves as a bit of a highlight for what is known.

Not much more can be written about such a short work. I will say that for anyone interested in Ogam, I'd highly recommend this work.
