The Skellig Story: Ancient Monastic Outpost
by Des Lavelle

I managed to take the boat trip with the author and this book tells it like it is. Also, I suggest when reading it, play Phil Coulter's Mise eireann and Mna na h-Eireann. He captures the mood and the haunting feeling of the place. Edited and adpated from a review by Michael Kelly on amazon.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Co. Antrim

This unique span links the tiny island of Carrick-a-Rede with the dramatic Giant’s Causeway coast. The name means ‘the rock in the road’ and refers to the sea route salmon use to migrate to home waters. Hundreds of years ago, while there was plenty of fish to catch, casting a net from a boat was perilous due to rough seas and rocky shores. The solution was a simple rope bridge built by local fishermen. Once a single-railed bridge with wide gaps between the slats, it is now double-railed gapless. However, crossing the bridge is not for the faint-hearted. Downwards is an 80-foot panorama of sand, sea and surf. If you can’t walk, across, there’s a special platform which also affords spectacular views.
