Abstract: Study of the early medieval Irish Sea tends to fall into two main categories: the practical sea of trade, travel and fishing, and the fantastical sea of monstrous beasts, saintly interactions and magical islands. But these two facets of perception were not mutually exclusive, and nor were they uniform around the Irish Sea. This paper will explore local responses to maritime geography and climate, and the interplay of practical and fantastical in the minds of early medieval coastal communities.
