Reek Sunday is celebrated on July 27, 2014. Reek Sunday (or Garland Sunday) is an annually pilgrimage in Ireland. On the last Sunday in July, pilgrims climb Ireland’s “holiest mountain”, Croagh Patrick (Cruach Phádraig) in County Mayo, traditionally in their bare feet. The pilgrimage has been held yearly for about 1,500 years. It is held in honour of Saint Patrick who, according to tradition, spent 40 days fasting on the mountain in the year 441, following Jesus and Moses.

The Holy Mountain Facts:

  • Croagh Patrick, which overlooks Clew Bay in County Mayo, is considered the holiest mountain in Ireland.
  • The tradition of pilgrimage to this holy mountain stretches back over 5,000 years from the Stone Age to the present day without interruption. Its religious significance dates back to the time of the pagans, when people are thought to have gathered here to celebrate the beginning of harvest season.
  • Croagh Patrick is renowned for its Patrician Pilgrimage in honour of Saint Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint. It was on the summit of the mountain that Saint Patrick fasted for forty days in 441 AD and the custom has been faithfully handed down from generation to generation. The Black Bell of Saint Patrick was a highly venerated relic on Croagh Patrick for many years.
