Named for Inisheer's patron saint, who is buried close by, the roofless 10th-century Church of St Kevin and small cemetery perch on a tiny bluff near the Strand. On the eve of St Kevin's 14 June feast day, a mass is held here in the open air at 9pm. The sick sleep here for a night hoping to be healed.
