InishKeeragh, Co. Donegal
According to legend, InishKeeragh was once part of a larger island known as Inis-fithi. On the 16th of March in the year 804, there was ‘a great storm of thunder, lightning, and wind, which exceeded so much in violence all the storms ever before witnessed, and so terrified the people, that it was recorded among Ireland’s Wonders’. when the people of the coast looked out the following morning on St. Patrick’s Day, they found the island of Inis-fithi divided into three parts. The largest of these is what we now know as Inish-Keeragh, and the portions severed from the main body are the two masses of rock which rise out of the waves north of the island.
