The Celtic Heritage of Armagh, Northern Ireland

The Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Reverend Alan Harper, OBE, delivered a lecture on the Celtic Heritage of Armagh in St Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh on Monday 1st February, St Brigid's Day, organised through the Centre for Celtic Spirituality, Armagh. Archbishop Harper was previously an archaeologist and worked on the last excavation of Navan Fort.
You can read a transcript of this lecture (which is quite complicated & involved) by clicking on the link below:
I especially like this quote from his closing statement:
'Celtic Ireland was never accomplished as the Romans would have said “by force of arms”. It was accomplished in the name of God through the apostolic ministry of men like Patrick.'
