Naomh: The Elusive St. Patrick of Downpatrick


St. Patrick (PNG)

I found this photograph in my collection of compositions from Ireland. Albeit I was unsure of the identity of its subject, I had my suspicions it was Saint Patrick. I tried doing a Google Image search which failed horribly, afterwards I found a photograph which I had taken some time before of a World War II memorial, which stated its location. From that location, it was easy to pin down the identity of Saint Patrick, just in time for his celebration. Behind his statue is a plethora of pink flowers, sitting atop a bog of sorts, which is apparently quite dangerous for its inherent quicksand qualities.
