Ogham is the earliest form of writing in Ireland, it dates to around 4th century A.D. and was in use for around 500 years. The Ogham alphabet is made up of a series of strokes along or across a line. The alphabet was carved on standing stones to commemorate someone, using the edge of the stone as the center line. They normally read from the left hand side bottom up, across the top and if need be down the other side.
