noun - Beginish (Beag Inis) means small island.

Beginish (from Irish: Beiginis, meaning "little island") is one of the Blasket Islands of County Kerry, Ireland. It is a low-lying island (14 meters) in Blasket Sound, between Great Blasket Island and the mainland. It has a large colony of Arctic Terns. The island is also the main birthing site for Grey Seals. There is at least one other island in County Kerry called Beginish: it lies at the mouth of the river Fertha about 1 km from Valentia Island. It was previously inhabited until c.1995 by the Casey brothers but the two houses are now only used in summer.[citation needed] The Island lies to the north of Valentia Harbour.
