One of the most important Kerry men ever is St. Brendan ‘The Navigator’. A bronze sculpture was erected in Fenit in his honour and was sculpted by Teige O’ Donoghue of Glenflesk. It stands on the Samphire rock at the entrance to Fenit Harbour, pointing across the Atlantic Ocean in the direction of America.
