Join Caroline Keane as she takes a trip out to the beautiful Inishkea Islands.
The picturesque white sandy beaches of Inishkea were home to a large number of families who cultivated the land and fished in the turquoise waters.
In 1927, a sudden violent storm blew up which caught ten fishermen unaware; it cost them their lives leaving heartbreak among the remaining islanders.
It wasn’t until nearly a decade later, in 1934/35, that the remaining families moved off the island to the mainland.
All that remains now is a landscape of residual ruins dotting the shoreline with sheep and the occasional cow roaming the lush green pastures.
