Location and history:

According to Macalister, CIIC, the stone was found on the land of a "farm called Old Mills"; it was later removed to the garden of a house "(for a time the Civic Guards Barracks)". This is now the residence of a landlord.

Size according to Macalister, CIIC: 5'0" x 2'3" x 1'9"

Reading Macalister, CIIC:

"The first Q flaked, and the C is practically worn away." - The inscription originally "ran up the dexter angle of the main face across the top, and down the opposite angle; but the side bearing the latter has been split off from the stone." - [Additional note 1:] "Now" there is some doubt that there is "any such split"; maybe the "inscription is complete as it stands".

Reading Gippert (1978 / 1988):

dexter angle, up:
What Macalister read on the part on the top of the stone was not verifiable when the stone was visited because it was too much covered with litchen. Re-reading is necessary.
