Na Sceirí
County Dublin

A local legend states that Ireland’s national saint St. Patrick has left a lasting impression on Skerries shore. And this in the truest sense of the word. In a rock on the shore of Red Island you can see, with a lot of good will and imagination, a footprint of the saint as he hurried from St. Patrick’s Island with gigantic jumps to Skerries to clarify the whereabouts of his goat. The situation was bad at that time, however, as some inhabitants of Skerries had already eaten the pet.
