Cheap na Sean-Ghaeil aibítir a léirigh an ról speisialta
a bhí ag crainn sa ghnáthshaol. Ceapadh an aibítir seo,
ar tugadh Ogham uirthi, thart ar an gceathrú haois,
agus cumadh go speisialta í don Ghaeilge. Séard a bhí
san aibítir Oghaim ná sraith de mharcanna gearrtha
isteach in imeall ghallán. Léitear Ogham mar a dhéantar crann a dhreapadh, ón mbun suas. D'fhreagair gach
grúpa de mharcanna do litir agus tugadh ainm do gach
litir. Ba é an focal don litir B ná beith agus bhí sé seo
comhcheangailte le crainn beithe, ach bhí an litir D
comhcheangailte leis an dair. I dtús báire ainmníodh
ocht litir as crainn - beith, fearnóg, saileach, dair,
coll, péine, fuinseog agus iúr. Sna Meánaoiseanna, thug
scoláirí ainmneacha crann ar na litreacha a bhí fágtha,
agus bhí aibítir na gcrann mar thoradh air.

The ancient Irish invented an alphabet that reflected
the special role that trees played in every day life.
This alphabet, called Ogham was invented around the
fourth century and was designed specifically for the
Irish language. The Ogham alphabet consisted of a
series of markings cut into the edge of standing
stones. Ogham is read as a tree is climbed, from the
bottom up. Each group of markings corresponded to a
letter and each letter was assigned a name. The word
for the letter B was beith and this was associated with
birch trees, while the letter D was associated with the
oak (dair). Originally eight letters were named after
trees - birch, alder, willow, oak, hazel, pine, ash and
yew. In the Middle Ages, scholars read other tree
names into the remaining letters, resulting in a tree
alphabet.
