Rumor: Episode VII to shoot on Ireland’s Skellig Michael?

rumors-skellSkellig Michael, the World Heritage island off southwest Ireland is reportedly a shooting location for Episode VII, according to local news site Kerry’s Eye:

The Office of Public Works (OPW) confirmed to Kerry’s Eye this week that “Skellig Michael is being made available for a film production shoot on the island… this production is being fully supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and the Irish Film Board”.

The island is certainly quite picturesque, and there have been rumblings about Ireland before. Head below the cut for a locator map.
