    Inishmurray Island

    Inishmurray is one of Ireland's best-preserved early Christian monastic sites. Founded in the 6th century by St Molaise, Vikings destroyed it in 807. Three churches remain, surrounded by a 13ft high dry-stone wall. Also part of the complex, is a beehive hut used as a school by 20th century inhabitants. Scattered about are 50 well preserved cross slabs, used to perform Stations of the Cross until 1948. A unique feature is the cursing stone altar with its pile of rounded stones. Tradition states that if you have been harmed in someway a curse can placed on the offender by thinking evil thoughts and turning one of the stones. Be careful! If in error, the evil will fall upon you instead.
