Boat operators are competing to become the chosen one, or rather chosen 15, to win a permit to land visitors on Skellig Michael, which has been made famous worldwide after featuring in Star Wars films.

The Office of Public Works (OPW) has launched a public competition to award up to 15 permits that will give operators the right to ferry and land tourists on the Unesco World Heritage Site, 12 kilometres off the south-west Kerry coastline.
