The Celtic Art Coracle Volume 1 Issue 5
Devenish Island - Betty Crichton ( continued) 

Devenish Isle now lies deserted and asleep as if waiting for its light to be rekindled. On the 1,400th anniversary of St. Molaise's passing, a pilgrimage to Devenish was organised by certain Companions of Chalice Well and by local clergy, embracing all Protestant denominations under the patronage of the Bishop of Clogher.

Major Tudor Pole was asked to address the congregation on this historic occasion. He concluded his address with these words:"Already a beacon has been rekindled on the Isle of Iona. We are engaged in relighting an answering beacon at Chalice Well, Glastonbury, the traditional gateway through which the Christian Message first reached our islands, spreading from there across the world.

Is it too much to hope that similar Beacons may be relit once more here on this blessed little island and other isles within this sheet of water, where holy
men from long ago dwelt and laboured selflessly in faith, humility and with profound and spiritual singleness of purpose?"
