A must have for serious followers of Irish archaeological sites connecting the reader with the medieval days of old. Out of print. Our last copy

The small island of Inishmurray, is situated just off the coast of County Sligo and is one of the best-preserved early medieval church sites in northern Europe. Inishmurray was not just a small hermitage site but once was a monastery of some significance.

This lavishly illustrated book gives a detailed archaeological survey covering a series of excavations along with old and contemporary images, to show us the importance of Inishmurray as a medieval church site.

The authors offer the reader an understanding of how the sacred topography of Inishmurray was experienced both by its resident community of monks and by the hundreds of medieval pilgrims who journeyed there.
