St. Patrick's Day will be celebrated across Ireland today, but did you know the patron saint of Ireland landed in #Wicklow first?
There are a number of historical references to St. Patrick’s landing at Three Mile Water, Brittas Bay. An important monastic site was founded here, which was second to Glendalough, and possibly older. There is also evidence that there may have been a pilgrim path between the monastery and Glendalough.
Other legends have St. Patrick landing at Travalahawk Beach, Wicklow town. He's said to have received a hostile reception from natives who hurled stones at him and his companions. He then headed on up the coast and eventually stopped at Strangford Lough, where he's said to have made his first converts to Christianity.
