Women on Inis Cathaigh

Women on Inis Cathaigh | Rita McCarthy

St. Senan was an early Christian with strong views on the ascetic life on a monastic site. This may have been the case in the early years of the Inis Cathaigh, but Dr. Cathy Swift challenges the view that women were not on the island in monastic times in this short clip. Cathy did a wide-ranging interview on aspects of monastic life, Viking raids and Brian Boru’s invasion of the island for our radio documentary Scattery Island: Hidden Treasure.
