The Skellig Story
Ancient Monastic Outpost
‘Magic that takes you out, far out, of this time and this world.'
George Bernard Shaw, after a visit to Skellig
This is the story of two of the world's most stunning and unspoilt islands, Skellig Michael and Small Skellig, which lie off the coast of Kerry. Lavelle explores the extraordinary, isolated Early Christian monastic settlement with its stone ‘beehive' huts. He describes the abundant bird life, including the huge colony of gannets, and tells of the history, legend, geology, plant life, the lighthouse, the seals and the underwater world.
A comprehensive and accessible book on a unique and fascinating place.
