According to a legend it was the sixteen year old shepherd Patrick who laid the cornerstone of Christianity in Ireland. It was he who used a three leaf clover as a symbol for the Holy Trinity and by ringing bells made the symbol of paganism, snakes, flee Ireland. On the anniversary of his death thousands of pilgrims would climb the Croagh Patrick hill to pay respects to the saint.
