Iniskea Islands, Co. Mayo.


Off the Mayo coast and west of Belmullet was this figure called Neevougee or Naomhog which was broken by a priest but bits saved in a sack or thrown into the sea depending on which story you get. More likely to be a religious good luck charm than anything like a Sheela.

Interesting history about when these were whaling islands and the competition between them. Not always friendly! Google it….
