The site motto is in Gaelic “Tada gan dua”, and the logo is two native indians exploring by canoe. It is linked to the legend of Saint Brendan the Navigator, who in the 6th century is said to have, along with sixty other monks travelled to the New World, in a boat covered in animal hides. They endured the Atlantic currents and treacherous weather to eventually arrivein North America as we know it today. He lived in the spirit of Derg Isle – Tada gan dua – ‘nothing without effort’. A belief that we incorporate into everything thatis done here today.
