Location and history:

According to Macalister, CIIC, the stone was found "by Rev. Canon Power (in 1914?) built into the gate-pier of a farm wall". It was removed to the Cork U.C. where it is assigned the no. 26 in the collection.

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

Published illustrations:
Macalister, CIIC 1, 65 (draft)

Reading Macalister, CIIC:

Possibly a letter from the H-series is missing before the O. After Q2 the stone has been broken off.

Interpretation Korolev, DP, 65:

The end has been broken off.

Reading Gippert (1981):

Angle up:
The reading is in accordance with the transcript given in the Cork U.C. - Given that the stone is broken at the bottom, it is not clear at all whether the inscription started with the O originally.
