Since we are still eating our green rice krispie treats, I think it is still okay to post about St. Patrick...right?

The view behind M is what can be seen from the Hill of Slane. This is the spot where St. Patrick lit his famous Paschal Fire to challenge the Druid Kings and convert the local people to the One True God. As you can see, it would have been visible for miles around.

St Patrick, pray for us!
