Scattery Island was a monastic centre from early times. St. Seanán founded a monastery there in the 6th century. The round tower is one of the tallest in the country, and unusually the door is at ground level. The entrance to a round tower is normally raised as the towers were primarily built as defensive structures.
Robert French was the chief photographer responsible for photographing three quarters of the Lawrence Collection. For more information, see the Dictionary of Irish Biography: http://dib.cambridge.org/viewReadPage.do?articleId=a3369
