About The Author
-

St Patrick’s Purgatory at Lough Derg in County Donegal has been a place of prayer and welcome since the sixth century. Monastic hospitality and robust prayer in the Irish monastic tradition is offered to those who “make the pilgrimage” in their bare feet, keeping vigil and eating one simple meal for three days during the pilgrimage season.
