Star Wars: Episode VII to film at Skellig Micheal, Ireland?

I’m updating via iPad. However, I’ve been on many magical adventures at SDCC which I will share soon. But first and foremost, I got this sent to me early yesterday morning and this is my first chance to share. I’m sure this is starting to break elsewhere by now. But this is what we heard yesterday:
