Saint Patrick’s Day Well Spent..

Slemish Mountain, this distinctive peak in County Antrim, holds a significant place in Irish history as it is believed to be the site where Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, tended sheep during his youth. Legend has it that Patrick, captured by Irish raiders, found solace and spirituality while herding sheep on Slemish. It became a symbol of his transformative journey towards Christianity. Today, pilgrims climb Slemish on Saint Patrick's Day to honor the saint's legacy. The mountain stands as a tangible connection to the formative years of Ireland's patron saint, echoing with the spiritual resonance of his enduring influence.
