Location and history:
According to Macalister, CIIC, "nothing is recorded of the history of the stone, except the statement in the Museum register, that the fragments came from the neighbourhood of Baltinglass". It consists of two fragments.
Size according to Macalister, CIIC: 2'2" x 1'9" x 0'8".
"Only C34 of the first letter remains, C12 being broken away. C3 is also fractured. C4 is prolonged slightly downward, but it cannot be treated as M."
"Surface angle, down":
The remnants at the end rather point to a M-class letter, e.g. R, than a Q. As against Macalister's reading, the C is perfect.
Size according to Macalister, CIIC: 2'2" x 1'7" x 0'11"
This is "evidently the top of the stone. The lettering is badly injured .."
