Teach Doinn, Donn’s House

Very near Dursey Island, sits Bull Rock shrouded in the mists. Through mundane eyes it appears as a rugged islet with a great lighthouse at its pinnacle.

Through the eyes of myth however, it is the House of Donn, the abode of the Irish Lord of the Underworld. It is here the souls of the dead gather before moving on. The photograph below shows the haunting island (far out to sea and to the right of Dursey) before the fog rolled in and hid it from view.
