The Celtic History Behind Our Name

St. Brendan's Boulder - found resting under a thicket of bush (adjacent to our location) has ancient inscriptions that have drawn major attention from researchers.

An archaelogical survey speculates a likeness between the etchings on the rock and ancient Celtic language. Stories of the travels of the Irish monk, St. Brendan - place his voyage here somewhere between 565 and 573 AD. This could indicate a European presence dating back over a thousand years before the arrival of the Vikings.
