The Skellig Islands, Ireland

The Skellig Islands, Ireland

The Skellig Islands, stand aloof in the Atlantic Ocean some 12 km southwest of Valentia Island, A wisp of cloud often adorning the peaks of these pinnacles creates a volcanic impression! But there is nothing volcanic about these Skelligs rocks; they are created of the same 350–million-year-old Devonian Sandstone that runs right through the backbone of Kerry – from the county’s south-western headlands to the shores of Killarney’s lakes.
