Discover the True Story of St Patrick with this Groundbreaking Audiobook

Every St Patrick’s Day, people all around the world celebrate Ireland’s Patron Saint with festivals and parades.  In some ways, Patrick feels like one of the most familiar saints.  When we think of Patrick, we conjure up an image of a bearded man dressed in a Bishop’s splendour, with emerald green robes and a tall mitre on his head.  However, the real, historical Patrick would have borne little resemblance to this popular image.  In this audiobook, we dig deep into Patrick’s own writings, to discover clues about who the real man was and to help answer questions about where Patrick came from and what he believed.

“The best summary we’ve come across of what can be deduced from the historical documents is the audio book ‘Patrick: Six Years a Slave’, which can be downloaded from Abarta Heritage, and which is highly recommended.” (Roaringwater Journal)

The overall audiobook is just over 1 hour in duration. It was written by Terry O’Hagan, and beautifully narrated by Gerry O’Brien, and with ambient music and soundscaping to create an immersive story. The audiobook was recorded at Bluebird Studios in Kildare, and produced by Abarta Heritage.  We hope that this audio book will be the first of many productions that help to tell the remarkable story of Irish archaeology, history and culture.
