word from Ghuaim,--the guaim, or wisdom of birds. One of old styled it a cowboy's inscription. The Book of Ballymote had an ogham tract.

In the Tain-bo-Cuailgne we read--"Cucullain cut an oak before him there, and he wrote an ogham on its side."--"He then made an Id (rod), and wrote an ogham in its side, and twisted it round the head of the pillar stone. The Id was put into the hands of Fergus Mac Roi, and he read the Id." O'Curry heard that in the third century there existed, at Tara, a book of wooden tablets of great age. The museums of Dublin, Edinburgh, and London have specimens of ogham writing.
