This stone is located in front of Kilmalkedar Church on the Dingle Peninsula in Co. Kerry. The stone is inscribed ANM MAILE-INBIR MACI BROCANN [The name of Mael Inbir son of Brocan] (Trans. from Harbison 174). ANM "literally means 'name', but may have a secondary meaning implying 'the remains or relics of'. Such inscriptions are likely to be Christian" (Edwards 103).
