One of three votive offerings recovered from St Colmán’s Well (Tobar Cholmáin) in the civil parish of Oughtmama (Irish: Ucht Máma meaning ‘breast of the high pass’), Co. Clare, in the Barony of Burren. St. Colmán’s well is part of the monastic landscape of Oughtmama, that comprises three early-medieval Christian churches, ruined castles, prehistoric cairns and ring forts, and two Martello Towers built in the early 19th century. This stone was presented to the National Science Museum, Maynooth by Rev. O’Doherty, Lord Bishop of Galway.
Original data capture was undertaken at the National Science Musuem, St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth in November 2016, under the direction of Dr. Konstantinos Papadopoulos. Access was granted by museum curator Dr. Niall McKeith.
