East of Lambay

I'm reading "Sea Room", Adam Nicolson's account of life on a small Scottish island. It made me wonder about the mysterious past of a private island called "Lambay" which I see every morning as I walk to the train station. Did Saint Patrick ever live there? How did Ptolemy of Alexandria know about Lambay (Limnos)? I've seen seals, puffins, cattle and deer on the island, who else has lived there?
