Location and history:
The stone stands in a field below a recently planted forest, high off the road. According to Macalister, CIIC, it was found by one J. Pilsworth from Thomastown (about 1940).

DRUGNO MAQI MUCOI [....] NAMI
The latter name was "wilfully mutilated". Only the H-part of G2 is secure. 1N is "traceable". OMA is "traceable, though for some reason indistinct". QI is "quite clear", but the I is nearly extended into the Q. 2M is "traceable", the U is "gone". Of 2N, only N4,5 are certain. As the stone stands within a distance of 7 mls. to the barony of Idrone East, Co. Carlow, this barony's name might be connected with the one of the "owner" of the monument.
DRUGNO MAQI MUCOI [4/5] N&127;AMI
According to Macalister's draft, only 2 strokes of 2N exist, so that L,V,S,N are possible.

ëëïïïïïâââ(ï)[ïâçç ïâëë || ççæï ]
The reading has to be checked again, especially because of the reading of the top and the direction of the inscription on the sinister angle.
