Description

Where Saint Patrick began his mission in Ireland.

It was in Armagh and Down that Saint Patrick began his mission in Ireland, established his first Church and created Armagh as the spiritual centre of the Island. From Bangor to Armagh drive the 92 mile signed route connecting key sites which have a strong link with St Patrick's Life, Legacy and Landscape. Patrick's mission is said to have lasted for many years. It is believed he died in the 5th century on the 17th March, the date on which Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated each year.
