2004 post[edit]

I have changed the American English Kilometer to the British English Kilometre. As this is not an international topic (where we generally apply the rule of everyone follow the type of english (AE, BE)which the first author used) but refers to a topic in a location in a part of the world where people use BE (or Hiberno-English) it seems logical, as in other British and Irish pages, to use BE and HE rather than AE.

Request.[edit]

I am making a request that the Irish language name of the Island, "Sceilg Mhichíl", be used for the article instead, for reasons that it is used on the UNESCO site. If this isn't possible then there should be a redirect. Thank you. --Éamonn Cálraighe (talk) 15:48, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

I have made the redirect. A name change is not necessary as this is the English language Wikipedia, not the Gaelic language Wikipedia. Secondly, the name Skellig Michael is far more known around the world then the gaelic name. The Banner talk 17:35, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
Understood - thank you. --Éamonn Cálraighe (talk) 17:46, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Unsourced and bad English[edit]

"The island before a monastery was mostly used by birds for mating." Can we delete this, or at least edit it to make it read better? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.101.121.132 (talk) 09:16, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

I have attempted an improvement. If not "enough", it may be best to simply remove. As you suggest. Guliolopez (talk) 20:31, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
