Island Daily Life

The chief source of livelihood on the islands is fishing, tourism and farming. Fishing includes both on-shore and off-shore from small boat and deep sea trawler. The traditional Curach boat is still used by some on the islands (cf. Picture). Mackeral, Pollock, Rock fish and many other fish types as well as shellfish, seals and dolphins are all part of the aquatic life of the islands. There is a seal colony on the shore at Corrúch village, Inis Mór. ( Photo) The visitor can enjoy a day’s angling on-shore and off -shore.
