Blasket Islands, Dingle Peninsula, Kerry, Ireland
The Great Blasket. See http://irish2009.mka.org/?m=200906. For a narrative of the loss of an island culture, some sites recommend this book, :The Blasket Islands: Next Parish, America", by Joan and Ray Stagles, http://www.irishbook.com/history/the-blasket-islands-next-parish-america.html. Is this similar to The Aran Islands, by J. M. Synge? See that online at http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4381.
Gaelic literature flowed from the Blaskets, 1920's:
