Scattery Island

The Oratory

About two metres north of the Cathedral stands St Senan's Oratory. Like the Cathedral the oratory was also fenced of by the O.P.W during my visit. This small nave and chancel church is over 7 metres in length and almost 4 metres wide. Pictured left is the west gable which features the only window of the building. This gable has been rebuilt from the window upwards. The almost completely destroyed doorway is situated in the south wall. To the west of here stands the round tower.

Situated: On Scattery Island. Boats sail to the Island from Kilrush Marina during the summer period.
