The uninhabited Skerries Islands are of great importance for all kinds of migratory birds that stop here year in, year out on their journeys from the Arctic or Africa. Also on the largest of the four islands, Shenick Island, as well as Colt Island and St. Patrick’s Island breed and rest different sea birds. St. Patrick’s Island is named after Ireland’s national saint who stopped here and founded a church.
