Skellig

By Denis McClean

Paranormal, Historical fiction, Fantasy | Paperback, eBook


Skellig is derived from the old Gaelic word Scelec, which is a splinter of rock. About a thousand years after Christianity, a ‘new’ church building there was dedicated to the Archangel Michael to complete its current label. However, the rock went by the name of Tearmann, or refuge. Further, it has always been a ‘Thin Place’. 'Thin Places’ are uncommon but they do exist on every continent. However, Skellig Michael, or Scelec Tearmann, to give it its first name, is the thinnest place in all Ireland. That’s because it also serves as a refuge for the pure of heart who find themselves in desperate circumstances. When he considered himself quite literally god forsaken, a Jesuit Priest, the Reverend Father Ignatius Moloney reacted by abandoning god in return. The Jesuits agreed that he be taken to Skellig to rediscover his lost spirituality and Skellig being Tearmann, duly obliged. Ignatius Moloney was more than surprised to learn that he'd been expected for more years than he'd been alive.
