St. Patrick Statue in front of His Namesame Mountain

A statue of St. Patrick stands guard of the mountain that now bears his name. St. Patrick climbed this mountain around 1,500 years ago. It is now a place of pilgrimage for many people who hike to the top as a prayer offering for many personal reasons. The climb is about 2 hours up and 1.5 back down. We met several people who climb it several times a day.
