I have to be honest and say that these old Manx Runic Stones and Crosses do fascinate me.
This rather strange stone (No. 110) is displayed in Kirk Michael Church and is a broken shaft of a cross slab, which in 1669 was turned upside down, reshaped and carved with a skull and cross bones. It shows remains of the double twist and ring design. On one edge part of an inscription reads, A.B. cut (these) runes.

Intriguing. I don’t remember seeing this stone. Presumably it was recut as a grave stone?
I don’t have an awful lot of information on it Eleanor, it is quite different and a tad haunting if you know what I mean.
The skull definitely is. Those eyes follow you….
