It seems to have arisen in the late Roman era. Quite possibly Irish men had variously raided or taken service with post Roman tyrants or with Roman units in those last years. They would have seen how writing could be used and perhaps wished to do something like that for themselves.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.

Some recently have been trying to say that the Picts were not Celts or they were not related to the Irish, Scots or Brits.  But this is contradicted with the fact that the majority of Scottish Ogham stones are located in areas which were under the control of Pictish kingdoms, along the eastern coast of Scotland north of the River Forth, and in the Orkney and Shetland islands.

"Tell people that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her." Saint Jacinta Marto

The real nature of hope is “despair, overcome.”
