A pilgrimage to sites associated with Saint Patrick.
A flock of pilgrims follow in the steps of St Patrick from his first church in Saul to his final resting place in Down Cathedral. Before making the pilgrimage from Saul these worshippers have travelled from across Ireland, Africa, Asia, Sweden, America and Cyprus to join the St Patrick’s Day congregation. This footage by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board joins the pilgrims as they reach Downpatrick. A sizeable flock lead by local ministers pass the old gaol and Regency houses on their way through town. The film ends at Down Cathedral where the crowd politely bustle their way inside for a good seat.
