Tóchar Phádraig is the longest of the surviving pilgrimage roads leading to Croagh Patrick.
The sacred mountain in Mayo, Ireland is the site of St Patrick’s first legendary battle with
the devil’s mother and a flock of demon birds.
On the last Sunday in July, around 30,000 pilgrims gather from all over to climb the Reek
(as the holy mountain is known locally).
In ancient times, the Reek was approached from the east, and the route begins at the
Abbey of Ballintubber.
