Saint Patrick’s story is essentially an Ulster story. That is where he was enslaved as a boy, that is where he returned to as a man. It’s where he built his first church, it’s where he evangelized and it is where he lived & died. Today, St. Patrick’s grave stone can be viewed in the grounds of Down Anglican Cathedral in Downpatrick, Ulster… not far from where he built his first house of Christian worship in Saul, Co. Down.
Northern Ireland roots. Norn Iron is an informal and affectionate nickname used by locals to refer to Northern Ireland, derived from the pronunciation of the words “Northern Ireland” in an exaggerated Ulster accent.
