Croagh Patrick – Up & Down

By Leo Morrissey, Art Department

August 2012: County Mayo, Ireland, 764 meters to the top.

Cruach Phádraig” Irish for Patrick’s Mountain is an important pilgrimage site, known by the locals as…. the Reek.

 After an 8 mile hike, dominated by overcast skies and rain that made it impossible to see the top of Croagh Patrick, the overcast skies cleared so I climbed the REEK!

I didn’t hike back to town…I  hitched a ride……

On the way up…
