long ago in the penal times priests went to High-Island for safety. it was about four or five miles from the main land. You cannot land on it but on a high-tide. There is fresh water on it also. the priests tilled it when they were on it. Now there are sheep on it. It is only a small island, but it is a very high it is to aran.
