Dingle Peninsula

Ballintaggart Ogham Stones

An ancient burial site surrounded by a stone and earth enclosure. Nine Ogham Stones are situated inside the enclosure some with crosses; this could suggest a transitional phasing from Pagan to Early Christian. Minard Strand some 6 miles away has a superfluous of such stones and it was from here they probably came. This is the largest Ogham Stone collection in Kerry.
