According to Macalister, CIIC I, 108, "Windele, and following him Brash, state that this monument formed part of a `stone circle' gradually removed by the local peasants for building purposes." It "was appropriated as a lintel for a pig-stye, where it was discovered by Croker and Abell: removed in 1835 to the Royal Cork Institution, it is now in University College, Cork". The stone was first published (as a draft) by Oldham, PRIA 2, 1844, 517 (fig. 4.), but without any attempt of a reading.
The stone is marked as no. 23 in the U.C., Cork. As against the drawing printed in CIIC 1, 108, the stone was erected upside-down here.
Size according to Macalister, CIIC: 6'1" x 0'10 1/2" x 0'3 1/2"
