About the Galloglass Stone
High on the north west coast of Inishowen, in the ruined church at Clonca near Culdaff, lies the 15th century gravestone of Magnus MacOrriston. MacOrriston was a Hebridean gallowglass and the intricate carvings on his gravestone include a claymore sword, a camán and a ball. The gravestone is of a type usually found on the islands of Iona and Islay and underlines the familial, linguistic and cultural links that existed between Gaelic Ulster and Gaelic Scotland until the start of the 17th century. The inscription is in Scots Gaelic and the stick looks similar to a modern shinty camán.
