This unusual cross inscribed grave-slab is located on Inchagoill Island in Lough Corrib. It bears the earliest form of Irish Script used in an Ogham style. The inscription reads Luguaedon Macci Menueh. The crosses consist of small crosses with expanded fish-tail terminals. There are two medieval churches on the site one with an ornate Romanesque doorway, a number of incised crosses on stones in the causeway and a spread of quartz pebbles on a grave. A leacht is also present. It consists of a square dry stone structure in the form of a loose altar. The site is enclosed by a drystone wall.
