Most of you have probably heard of Atlantis, the mysterious island that Plato wrote about with an advanced civilization that supposedly sank into the ocean in a tragic, one-day disaster. Information is sketchy about Atlantis. Plato never saw or visited the island, nor can anyone pinpoint it on a map. But there is another strange disappearing island from antiquity that has more eyewitness sightings, visitations, and that appears in the same location on numerous maps. It was called Hy-Brasil and it is sometimes called Ireland’s Atlantis.
