Macalister/1945, 136: `The cave has become much silted up since I first saw it, many years ago, and the first six letters are now buried. The top of the stone is broken, and there is nothing after the N: this might be the B-half of an R'.
Cuppage/etal/1986, 103: `The ogham inscriptions on the side-stones are partly concealed by fill, and those portions on the outside angles of the stones are difficult to view. The readings of the inscriptions provided by Macalister (1945, 136--137) were therefore tentative, and a reassessment was not possible on this occasion'.
