ABANDONED ISLANDS WEEK: Inishmurray, County Sligo, Ireland

Are you ready to explore another abandoned island, this time on a beautiful green mound? 

Inishmurray, Ireland
The remains of an Irish monastery remain on this 228 acre island.  Vikings in the ninth century drove the monks to the mainland for safety.  There were 46 people living there but they moved off the island for the coastline in 1948.
