Saint Patrick's Day

The stereotypical Saint Patrick's Day signage at the entrance to Princeton Landing is such a cliché that it may be cringeworthy to residents of Irish descent. So, in an effort to bring us closer to the true spirit of Saint Patrick's Day, here's a slideshow we've posted before, displaying the work of a photographer in Northern Ireland, whose beautiful photographs of Saul Church show us what Saint Patrick's Day is really about.

Saul Church, also known as St. Patrick's Memorial Church, is in the small village of Saul in County Down, two miles outside Downpatrick, in Northern Ireland. The church was built to commemorate the 1500th anniversary of Saint Patrick's first church in Ireland. The foundation stone records that it is on the site given to Saint Patrick in AD 432.
