Minister for the Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Heather Humphreys has granted consent to the filming of Star Wars Episode 8  on Sceilg Mhichíl in September 2015 following the filming of scenes for Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the island in the summer of 2014.

Earlier today the Minister and An Taisce heritage officer Ian Lumley spoke to Sean O’Rourke on RTÉ Radio 1 about the issue of the Disney Lucasfilm Star Wars project on the Unesco world heritage site, which An Taisce has objected to.
