Places in Aran Islands
Inisheer (Inis Oírr), the smallest of the Aran Islands, has a palpable sense of enchantment, enhanced by the island's deep-rooted mythology, its devotion to traditional culture and ethereal landscapes. With only six surnames among the locals, most given names are highly descriptive. The wheels of change turn very slowly here. Electricity wasn't fully reliable until 1997.
