When St. Patrick and his disciple St. Mantan first set foot upon the sandy shores of Wicklow, their many days at sea had brought a great hunger upon them.
Surrounded for days by the cruelly inhospitable ocean, and without a drop of water in their flasks, a great thirst, too, had come upon St. Patrick and St. Mantan.
And with arms weary from struggling with oars on the raging waters, a great exhaustion had come upon St. Patrick and St. Mantan.
‘How are we to banish the snakes, St. Patrick? If we cannot first banish our own melancholies?’ St. Mantan asked.
St. Patrick smiled and nodded towards the town.
‘I know a place…’ he said.
