Island of the Cat

Irish - An island visited by Maeldun. In a white house on top of this very tall island of chalk, the mariners found a feast and carried some of it back to their boat. When one of the crew picked up a necklace, a small cat, which was playing in the room, turned into a fireball which shrivelled the man to ashes. In some references, referred to as Island of the Cat.
