Ogham Irish Wishes
Ogham writing is Ireland’s Ancient script, often found inscribed on standing stones and in sacred places throughout Ireland’s rural landscape. The Ogham Alphabet is the earliest known form of Irish writing. It dates from the 1st century B.C. and was widely used by the Celts for centuries. Ancient Ogham writing can still be found on many standing stones throughout Ireland. Ogham is read from bottom to top.
