© National Geographic Society THIS MONOLITH IS SUPPOSED TO MARK SAINT PATRICK'S GRAVE Born in Scotland, the patron Saint of Ireland was kidnaped by Irish raiders and sold to an Ulster chief. He escaped and later converted Ireland to Christianity. Peasants say his greatest miracle was driving snakes from the land. He died at Saul, where many believe he lies, rather than beneath this stone inscribed " Patric," at Downpatrick.
