Island Names
by Pepe 1 Nov 2021
Going by Gerald Geoffrey Spencer's excellent "30 Year Study of the East Waterford Coast", the outermost of the two Sheep Islands is known as Vales Island. The large boot-shaped stack alongside Sheep Island is known as Carrickanine. This island group is known generally under the romantic sounding title Isles of Icane - probably related to the various townlands of Islandikane (OS spelling) on the nearby mainland. This area is at the heart of the Copper Coast, and full of fascinating sea arches, caves and secret coves uncrowded, unknown and largely unexplored. Linkback:
