Photos and Facts about St Patrick

Down Cathedral, Downpatrick, Co, Down, Northern Ireland. Believed to be where the remains of St Patrick are buried.

Slemish Mountain, Co Antrim. Patrick was captured and brought as a slave to Ireland where he worked as a shepherd at Slemish Mountain for about six years, from ages 16 through 22, for a man named Milchu (or Miluic). It was during this time that Patrick turned to frequent prayer as his only consolation in his loneliness. In a vision he was encouraged to escape and return home.
