I recently attended a fantastic workshop on St Patrick delivered by Dr Finbar McCormick from Queen's University. After his presentation at Down County Museum we went on a site visit to Struell Wells, St Patrick's Church, Saul and to a nearby church where a portion of the actual alter stone used by St Patrick is on display. An informative, entertaining and insightful programme.

The St Gall Priscian is an ancient manuscript produced by Irish scribes around 850. The 1,169 year old book has contributions written by Irish monks from Bangor and Nendrum. This manuscript can be seen in the St Gall Abbey library in St Gallen, Switzerland where one of the most valuable collections of medieval Irish literature in the world is held. The second photograph attached is of the St Gallen Bell.
