“May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.” 
The story of St. Patrick is a story of endurance. When he was a teenager, St. Patrick was captured in Wales and brought to the island to work as a slave herding sheep on Slemish Mountain, County Antrim. He spent six tough years on the heather-laden slopes with only sheep as company. But it was also here that Patrick found consolation with God. Today you can walk the 1.2-mile trail up to the summit of Slemish, and look out on the landscapes that inspired the saint himself.  https://www.facebook.com/carolynhaynes5050
