Tern Mór is the main island one out of the Tern Islands off the coast of Ireland. The only inhabitant is Kieran Ross, a conservationist.


The island looks like something from a horror film. Dark cliffs rear from the ocean, and spumes of foam lap at the waterline. There are often cloud banks surrounding the island. A line of greenery hangs over the edge of one of the cliffs. There are at least 200 birds that nest on the crags.

Part of the island is called Seal Beach, and ironically, has no seals or sand. Two thirds of it has steep, rocky crags, and the other third has a steep mudslide.
