Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 160, `The only available information as to its provenance is in the Graves's paper quoted above, where it is said to have been found `in the townland of Ballinvoher, Barony of Corkaguiney, O.S. Sheet 45'. There is no townland of this name in the barony specified: it is the name of a parish, extending over seven O.S. maps, including No. 45'.

Cuppage et al/1986, 252, `Precise provenance unknown...According to Graves (1894, 374), this ogham stone was discovered in 1893 in the townland of Ballinvoher. No such townland now exists. Ballinvoher is the name of a large parish stretching from Anascaul in the W to Aughils on the barony boundary to the E. However, the name Ballinvoher is also applied to the immediate environs of the village in Ballyandreen townland. Ballinvoher sited just beside the village and Ballinvoher Graveyard...located in the adjoining townland of Rathduff. It seems likely then that the ogham stone was found in or close to this village, and that Graves took the name of this small area to be that of a townland'.
