Other Description

The island’s English name Inishbofin is derived from the Irish name Inis Bó Finne (‘Island of the White Cow’). There are several legends concerning the origins of the island’s name. According to one legend, the island was actually a floating place until some fishermen landed on it in a fog. By bringing fire onto the island, they dispelled the magic, fixing it in place. They then saw an old woman driving a white cow, which turned into a rock when the woman struck it with a stick.
