Austrians on the trail of St Patrick

27 Oct 2008

Austrian travel writers visited Northern Ireland recently, on a ‘mission’ to trace the story of St Patrick. Their visit was organised by Tourism Ireland, in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

They met with Dr Tim Campbell at the St Patrick Centre in Downpatrick before visiting the Cathedral, St Patrick’s Grave, Inch Abbey, Saul Church and Struell Wells. The group also spent time at Armagh Cathedral and St Patrick’s Trian Visitor Centre before travelling onto Devenish Island and Enniskillen.
