The St Patrick’s Treasury: Celebrating the Myths, Legends and Traditions of Ireland’s Patron saint, by John Killen
St Patrick is Ireland's best-known and best-loved saint.
His life and legacy is deeply ingrained in Irish history and society, as the annual 17 March celebrations in Ireland and across the globe show. Northern Ireland now has its own St Patrick's trail, and many pilgrims flock to sites such as St Patrick's Purgatory and Croagh Patrick.
In The St Patrick's Treasury John Killen brings together the legends, folklore, traditions and stories that have been associated with St Patrick across the centuries. The book includes the life story and writings of St Patrick and information about places associated with the saint.
The St Patrick's Treasury is a book to treasure and an ideal gift.
