Do you know what Ogham writing is?
Ogham writing is Ireland’s Ancient script. It is found inscribed on standing stones and in sacred places throughout rural Ireland. Ogham is an alphabet used to write the early Irish language.
There are roughly 400 known Ogham inscriptions on stone monuments scattered around the Irish Sea. They date back to the 5th and 6th centuries. Ogham itself is known as the “Celtic Tree Alphabet”. The vast majority of inscriptions consist of personal names and use a series of formula words, usually describing the person’s ancestry or tribal affiliation.
