Mcmanus/1991, 75: `This stone was found in Shankill, Co. Kilkenny, and was presented by Capt. M. Doyle (see the Old Kilkenny Review 21 1969, 101, entry 60/6) to the museum at Rothe House in Kilkenny, where it is on view'.
McManus/1991, 76: `As already noted this stone is unusually small and one cannot help thinking that, in its present size at least, it would have constituted something of an embarassment as a memorial. Unless it can be shown that it was part of an originally larger stone, therefore, one might entertain some doubt as to its authenticity'.

McManus/1991, 76: `only one vowel notch is clear after the G and another just before the last consonant. Of the latter, only two scores (of the B series) are visible above the mounting. In view of 275 CUNALEGEA, therefore, one wonders whether the reading was CUNALIGIAS or CUNALIGEAS, but this cannot be verified. The C of CUNA looks more like DD, the spacing being similar to that found in the LL of the second angle, but C is probably the intended reading. .. The last notch of the I of COSCIS/N is unclear and four scores of the final letter can be read with certainity, a fifth being debatable owing to damage below the letter'.
