• Short Summary

    Lovely footage of rural Northern Ireland as we see where St Patrick grew up.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'ST PATRICK'S COUNTRY'.

    Ulster, Northern Ireland.

    Various scenic countryside shots of the village of Raholp in County Down where St Patrick grew up. A man thatches a roof of a cottage. A woman walks along with a dog and a pail over her arm and draws some water from a well. Children feed cows through a gate. A man herds cows along.

    A small boy with a goat walks along by a road at Saul (?) where St Patrick first preached Christianity in Ireland. We see a small church in the background with a typical Celtic tower that is said to mark the spot where St Patrick died.

    Shot of Downpatrick Cathedral where St Patrick is buried, according to legend. People look at the plain slab of granite from the Mourne Mountains that marks the grave.
