A St. Patrick's Day special:

St. Patrick's Ireland

For St. Patrick's Day
March 17, I'm sharing a short (under four minutes) collage of video clips and still pictures from the two places in Ireland most associated with the fourth-century saint. The first is Armagh, County Tyrone, where he was the first bishop of all Ireland, installed in a cathedral on the site shown in the index photo for this video, with my son Mike. The second site associated with Patrick is Downpatrick, County Down, which is the town closest to where Patrick is believed to have first landed in Ireland after being kidnapped in Wales at age 16. He is also believed to be buried in Downpatrick, at a site shown in the video. The background hymn, "Be Thou My Vision," is based on Patrick's most famous prayer.
