Dublin is often seen by rural Irish folk as an outpost of agnosticism and irreligion in an otherwise pious land, but did you know that there are two precise locations in the Irish Capital where we know the venerable St Patrick baptised the pagan Irish? We will visit both these locations on this tour.
The tour will start at the Gardens of Remembrance in Parnell Square (the traditional starting point of the St Patrick's Day parade) and conclude at St Patrick's Cathedral in Nicholas Street (its traditional end-point), covering all the main sights along the traditional parade itinerary.
I will also recount to you along the route excerpts from St Patrick's 'Confessio' which give fascinating insights into our patron saint's life, and end the tour by giving a definitive answer to that eternally vexed question: was St Patrick Welsh, or was he a Scot?

Jack's Irish Tours
Born and bred in Dublin, but to parents from rural backwaters, Jack is equally at home in the countryside as in his native city. He's been tour guiding for over ten years now and asks himself why he didn't discover his beloved profession earlier! Jack is looking forward to letting the wonders of technology deliver his lively and entertaining tours of Dublin and other Irish places to more remote and varied audiences on Beeyonder.

Jack was wonderful! He was a treasure trove of information about Ireland - its history, culture and character. As one of our event co-chairs texted me after the tour "You found a pot of gold with Jack and Beeyonder".
