For St Patrick's Day,
Seamus McKee visits '
St Patrick 's country' with its deep historical imprints of Ireland's patron saint:
Strangford Lough , where he landed from Europe; Saul, where in a barn he founded his first church; and the stone slab in Downpatrick which reputedly marks the site of his grave.
The people of the area, who trace their faith back to him, speak about their lives and work today and come together in the parish church dedicated to the saint to sing their Songs of Praise. Hymn to St Patrick (Hail glorious St Patrick): Ag Criost an siol; Be thou my vision (Slane); Lay your hands gently upon us: I bind unto myself today (St Patrick/Gartan); Lord, for tomorrow and its needs (Providence): I vow to thee, my country (Flight of the Earls):
