The Blasket Islands - Dunquin - Ireland.tif
The Blasket Islands are a group of islands off the west coast of Ireland, forming part of County Kerry.
They were inhabited until 1953 by a completely Irish-speaking population, when they were forcefully evacuated by the government to the mainland . Many of the descendants currently live in Springfield, Massachusetts, and some former residents still live on the Dingle Peninsula, within sight of their former home.
