County Kerry Iveragh Peninsula
There was a monastery on this tiny island just off Portmagee from 7-9C.The site has been fully excavated. There are 8C oratories and altars (leachta) and a large gable shrine for the relics of the community’s saints; The community were buried close by. White quartz stones and scallop shells were placed on the bones of the saints; this may reflect knowledge of a large scallop shell over the Tomb of Christ in Jerusalem.
