Emerald Isle: In the footsteps of St. Patrick

Is the gravesite in Downpatrick the final resting place of the great Saint? In search of St. Patrick takes us across the Emerald Isle from Slemish Mountain, an old volcano in County Antrim where he toiled as a shepherd, past ancient healing wells where he would have ministered, to the cathedrals at Armagh and finally Downpatrick. Fact or fiction, the truth of many of the stories that surround the patron saint of Ireland can be learned at the St. Patrick Centre that showcases Patrick’s life and work.
