Notes on name: Small Skellig is home to nearly 70,000 gannets,making it the second largest gannet colony in the world. It is a statutory nature reserve. The public is not permitted to land on the island and there is no public access. The word sceilg is probably an early alternative form of speilic, both derived from Latin spelunca, ‘cave, den’, a word sometimes applied to hermit’s dwellings. The change sp- > sc- probably occurred in the early Christian period when Irish had no native words with p, cf. Ir. Cáisc, ‘Easter’, < Latin Pascha. It is no coincidence that two of the best known and earliest recorded instances of sceilg are at 6th century monastic sites with hermitages, namely Skellig Michael and Templenaskellig near St. Kevin’s Bed at Glendalough.
