Church Island in Lough Currane, Waterville

One of the early ecclesiastical sites in South Kerry is located on an island in Lough Currane or Waterville Lake. To visit these extensive remains; a small Romanesque church, cross inscribed slabs, St. Finan´s Cell, a burial ground and leachts; you need to hire a boat. Whether it would be better to exploit the place in touristic terms, I am not sure, but it is definitely worth seeing it and you can join Paddy Bushe, Poet and local Historian, and myself for a workshop organised by Tech Amergin on the 4th and 5th July.
