Hy-Brasil is a phantom island which features in many Irish myths. It appears on a map in 1325 off the south west coast of Ireland and said be cloaked in mist except for one day every seven years, when it becomes visible but still cannot be reached. There are rumours of strange creatures and a lone magician who inhabit it.

Written and narrated by Paul Evans, with sound recordings by Chris Watson, Hy-Brasil tells the story of a journey across a sea of imagination in search of this phantom isle.
