Colmcille (Columba) is one of the most important figures in early Christianity, one of the three patron saints of Ireland, a star of Irish folklore and mythology. 1500 years after his birth we still celebrate his memory in stories, poetry, music and books, and in pilgrimages that renew our spirituality. His name has come to signify peace and reconciliation in these islands.
This exhibition, previously in the Tower Museum, is currently on display in Donegal County Museum. You can also visit Aras Cholmcille to uncover more stories about Colmcille at www.stcolumbanheritage.com.
