|Discovery:||in/on structure, 1910 Cremin & Murphy|
|History:||Macalister/1945, 112: `In 1911 a souterrain was found in this townland with Oghams, indecipherable in their then position, on some of the lintels. Two years later the cave was dismantled, and the stones moved to University College Cork, where they now stand. Of the ten long stones used in the construction -- eight lintels and two supporting uprights -- six were found to be inscribed...[this one being] the innermost lintel'.|
Power et al/1997, 168: `One of six ogham stones...used in the construction of souterrain (8910), discovered in 1910 and removed to UCC, where they remain'. Also see p. 281, for discussion of the excavations of 1910.

Macalister/1945, 112: `cut in very fine scores'.
|Ling. Notes:||McManus/1991, 53: `stones 112 and 113...belong to a group found acting as lintels in a souterrain in Knockshanwee, County Cork, and would seem to commemorate brothers'. Also see p. 108.|
McManus/1991, 96: `Inscriptions in which all endings are lost but which do not show the reduction brought about by syncope may be placed next in the chronological sequence. In these the word for `son' tends to be written MAQ, occasionally MAC, [e.g]. ?MICANAVVI MAQ LUGUN[I] (-I confirmed for the latter by 113, in each case the yo-stem gen. ending)'.
Macalister/1945, 112: `badly scaled, but quite decipherable'.
Macalister/1945, 113: `The H-half of the initial M can scarcely be seen; C is broken, the U's are very faint, and I is quite gone. The words are spaced, which is exceptional: there is a gap of 4 inches after the first word, and 2 1/2 inches after the second'.
Power et al/1997, 168: `both Power (1932, 21, no. 21) and Macalister...gave inscription as MICANAVVI MAQ LAGUNI; McManus (1991, 67) found the `MI of the first name was not clear...[and] could only read L and N with certainty in the second'.
