Saint Patrick's actual birth & death dates are not known. March 17th is celebrated worldwide as St Patrick's Day (supposedly the day of his death). St Patrick was reputedly buried on Cathedral Hill in 461. The bones of St Patrick, St Brigid & St Colmcille (St Columba) were reputedly found on Cathedral Hill by John de Courcy and then reinterred here together on 1186-06-09. The inscribed granite stone from the Mountains of Mourne wasn't installed until 1900.
