John Holmes

Living in Ireland, John Holmes would often drive through the quiet Antrim countryside where the impressive sight of Slemish Mountain would cause his thoughts to turn to Patrick. In due course, he had opportunity to research the man and his mission at the History Department of Queen’s University, Belfast. Thus began a journey of discovery; one which was to capture his mind, touch his heart, and at times bring him to tears as he discovered the real St Patrick, the most famous figure in Irish history.
