Description

Cillvickillane/Cill Mhic Uíleáin: A storm at the end of the 18th century exposed 7 ogham stones, a possible fragment of an 8th ogham stone, a cross-inscribed stone, a number of graves and quantities of bone, and the ruins of several houses (Windele 1838, 145). Windele's sketch of the site shows the ogham stones set out in a rough semi-circle on top of the mound with a slab-lined grave positioned nearby. Lord Ventry removed 6 of the ogham stones from the site in the mid-19th century; nos. 1 to 4 now line the driveway to Burnham House/Colaiste Íde (KE053-012004-, KE053-012005-, KE053-012006-, KE053-012007-), between Dingle and Ventry; nos. 5 and 6 are preserved in the grounds of Chute Hall (KE027-132----, KE027-241----) near Tralee and no. 7 remains at the original site (KE042-057003-).
The present location of this stone is at Chute Hall in the townland of Tullygarran and its monument number at that location is KE027-241----. This stone stands 1.1m high and is 0.29m x0.2m wide at base . Two opposed angles bear the inscription: CCICAMINI MAQQ(I) C(A)TTINI. Two of the vowels are no longer traceable but the remainder of the scores are clearly defined. (Cuppage 1986, no. 792 (No. 6))
