Further to yesterday's post, I went back to www.oileain.ie (the site of the Irish Islands Federation) to count up the islands. There are 31 inhabited offshore islands in the Republic of Ireland:
I'll have to check Dernish, Inisgort, Islandmore, Inis Trá Mhór and Foynes and see if they still count as 'inhabited' - these figures are from the 2006 census. I will also be adding Rathlin Island, off the Antrim coast. Volunteers to participate in the project (as much or little as you like), gratefully received.
