Northern Ireland is also of course the home place of St Patrick and it is here that you can discover the man behind the myth and the legend. The St Patrick’s Trail is another great touring route, 92 miles in length, which follows in his missional footsteps and links many of the Christian heritage sites associated with St Patrick across County Down, County Antrim and County Armagh. These include the Slemish Mountains in County Antrim where St Patrick was enslaved as a shepherd in his early life and Saul Church, St Patrick’s first established church in Ireland. His remains are said to be buried in the Cathedral of Downpatrick, County Down.
