Pilgrimage on a peak

SHARE Pilgrimage on a peak

Nuns give each other a hand as they climb up Croagh Patrick mountain during a pilgrimage near Westport in western Ireland on Sunday. Around 25,000 people, some barefooted, participated in the annual event. St. Patrick was said to have climbed the peak in 441 A.D. and sent Ireland's reptiles to their doom.
