Leaving the shelter of Isabel’s farm, we travel to the heights of Dunmore Head. A place with truly spectacular views. The setting inspired people in the past too, as you can see with this fine ogham stone. Isabel deciphers the stone for us, and discusses the meaning, use and significance of ogham stones in Ireland. Dunmore Head was also chosen for a lookout station during the Second World War (known here as the Emergency).

As this was recorded in the open on the wind-swept Dingle Peninsula the audio may occasionally diminish. We recommend using the captions to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
