Weekly Photo Challenge – On the Way

Croagh Patrick is a pilgrimage mountain in County Mayo, Ireland. The mountain, with its distinctive shape can be seen from many parts of the County. Before it became a place of Christian pilgrimage (after Saint Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, spent 40 days and nights there), it was a mountain of pagan worship. People were thought to have gathered on the mountain to celebrate the beginning of the harvest.
