Including wonderful photographs and illustrations, Harry Hughes’ book describes the pilgrimage and details the history, archaeology, ancient traditions and folklore associated with Croagh Patrick.

Set on the Atlantic shore in County Mayo, Croagh Patrick is known as Ireland’s Holy Mountain and attracts almost one hundred thousand pilgrims and visitors every year. In particular on Reek Sunday, the last Sunday in July, over twenty thousand people climb the mountain, some at night and some in their bare feet.

Harry Hughes’ book describes the pilgrimage and details the history, archaeology, ancient traditions and folklore associated with ‘The Reek’.

Wonderful photographs and illustrations capture the sheer beauty of the mountain and surrounding countryside, the devotion of the pilgrims, both historical and contemporary, the buildings and sacred artefacts associated with the peak and the spirit of one of Ireland’s most sacred places.
