Reask Monastic settlement Nov 10, 2017
This monastic site is home to some fabulous ruins that have been dated as far back as the 6th c. Excavations in the 70's have revealed that the site contains a stone oratory, several clochans, and a couple of pillar stones engraved with latin crosses and initials. Close to the oratory is a cemetery where over 40 graves were found. The most impressive of the pillar stones is the Reask stone, standing some 1.65 metres high, inscribed with a Greek cross and pendant spirals, and on the left of the spirals is inscribed the letters DNE, latin for Domine or "Lord". On what is known as pillar stone D (photo 2) is a latin cross with the letters DNS, for Dominus and the on the other side the same cross with letters DNO for Domino.
