St. Patrick's First Church


This is a just a quick view of what we saw on Inchagoill Island in the middle of Lough Corrib. Flirting with the usual cliches to say so, nevertheless, standing on the very ground where over 1,500 years ago St. Patrick built his first church and laid the grave marker of his trusty oarsman does put things in perspective.

Especially when one considers that so long ago, Christianity was already centuries old....
