Reek Sunday 2014

27th July 2014
oday is "Reek Sunday" here in Mayo. On the last Sunday of July thousands of people climb Croagh Patrick (locally called "the Reek" )in pilgrimage. St Patrick spent 40 days on the summit fasting, back in 441 , though it is thought the mountain was always of spiritual importance long before Christianity and St. Patrick came to Ireland.As many as 25,000 could climb it today. I was not among them and have not climbed the mountain now for about four years, guilt is beginning to set in !!
