|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 stone was] the seventh lintel'.|

Macalister/1945, 114: `Inscription on the flanking angles of one of the narrow edges (up-down)'.
|Palaeography:||Macalister/1945, 114--115: `the whole of the writing on the second angle has been broken away for a length of 1' 6", which would hold about 24 scores (including the missing OI of MUCCOI). After this come what look like the distal lower ends of reversed R, followed by the tips of an L...The writing begins at 3' 10" from the bottom of the first angle: after the first word there is a blank space of 1 1/2". All the lost consonants of the second name must have been of the H-group'.|
CISP: A large section of the latter part of the inscription is missing.
McManus/1991, 66: `In the cases of the following Irish inscriptions I had greater difficulty reading one or more letters (indicated in low case) but I would hesitate to reject Macalister's reading...BRANI MAQQI MUC...'.
