Guarded by birds, the gaunt rock that is Skellig Michael is the last piece of Ireland before the open Atlantic. On this holiest of all holy Irish places, you can still see the beehive cells of the 9th-century monks. They are long gone, and the mystery and magic of this uninhabited place now lie in its atmosphere.
Frank Delaney with two friends took the boat to Skellig and in this programme he re-creates their experience. Stereo
