'What Is Seldom Is Wonderful' -- Mystical Innismurray Island on the Wild West Irish Tour

Innismurray Island is, perhaps, the gem of the Wild Atlantic Way and is certainly a place where Wild West Irish Tours loves to bring visitors. Steve Hogan was one such visitor this year and he compiled this beautiful video/music montage in appreciation of his wonderful adventure out to this sacred place.Getting to Innismurray can be very difficult; the sea conditions have to be nearly perfect to have a boat land on this island which has the remains of a 6th Century monastery.  An rud is annamh is íontach. “What is seldom is wonderful.”

I have to stop reading these posts. It just makes me jealous that I'm not there.

Cool - I will have to plan a trip out there.  We love Sligo!  Great seanfhocal, too.
