Port na h-Eaglaise, Nave Island
Port na h-Eaglaise, Nave Island
The island name Eilean Neimh means 'Nein's Island', and probably derives from one of the four saints of that name. Port na h-Eaglaise means 'Port of the church'. The church is thought to have been founded by a disciple of St Columbus. It was ruinous by 1785, in which year it was repaired with the addition of a tall brick chimney for the purpose of burning kelp.
