Macalister/1945, 92--93, records the removal of all ogham stones from their original location in the Ballyhank souterrain, `one of these was purchased from the local farmer by F. M. Jennings in 1846, and presented by him to the Royal Irish Academy (PRIA 3: 213, without any statement of provenance): in 1849 Windele removed the remaining stones to his own residence. All six are now re-united in the Academy's collection'.

Macalister/1945, 97: `cut on one angle'.
|Ling. Notes:||Macalister/1945, 97: `Evidently the traditional archaistic genitive termination of the proper name had already become so completely stereotyped that it had ceased to be felt as a genitive.'|
|Palaeography:||Macalister/1945, 97: `The prefixed AB ... is separated by 5 3/8 inches from the initial U of the name, and there never were any scores preceding or following it. The H surface has been flaked twice - once before receiving the inscription, for it bears the first two vowels uninjured; and once after, for the second flake has carried off the distal ends of 2C and G'.|
Macalister/1945, 97: `Inscription in good condition'.
McManus/1991, 66: `The AB which Macalister reads some distance before the name ULCCAGNI is not very deeply cut and there is ground for considerable doubt as to whether it should be considered part of the inscription'.
