The remarkable form of Inis Tuaisceart seen from the mainland, which resembles a recumbent human figure, has given rise to several names, such as An Fear Marbh ('the dead man'), 'the Bishop' and 'the Sleeping Giant'. To the south of the island's summit lies an early Christian structure known as Teampall Bréanainn or St. Brendan's Oratory.   Inis Tuaisceart is the 1433th highest place in Ireland. Inis Tuaisceart is the 4th most westerly summit in .

Oratory with a possibly grizzly story.

At around Q23335 00380 B you will find a cluster of buildings, a minor monastic ruin, marked at St Brendan's Oratory. There is a round corbelled building, sunk well into the ground, with a hole, presumably for smoke, at the top.

The interior is seriously dirty with a discarded gas cylinder and other modern junk in it. According to Oileáin, David Walsh's 2004 book on the islands of Ireland, "There is a local story of how the widow of a recently departed, corpulent husband got him out through the awkward entrance. She took him out in pieces." Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1045/comment/14813/
