An Irish Times report today claims An Taisce has photographic evidence – taken before and after filming for Star Wars – showing fresh repair work to the island’s monastery.

There have also been reports that steps leading to the monastery were “addressed by OPW staff on site”.

However the OPW said dislodged steps could be caused by nesting birds or human feet and that the repair work was normal at the end of the visitor season.
