Transcript of Ireland project

Chapter 4: St. Patrick, the Church, and the Vikings. In 401 some Irishmen came to britain. They took many
people back to Ireland
and sold them. One of these people was Patrick For six years
young Patrick worked with sheep on a farm. Then, when
he was twenty-two, he ran
away to France. He learned about God from monks at school in a French monastery. In 432 he went back to Ireland to teach
the Irish about God. A hundred years later, Ireland was one of the most important Christian countries in Europe,
with beautiful Churches and monasteries everywhere. Another churchman was Brendan. Brendan sailed to Scotland, Iceland, Geenland, and Aamerica in a small leather boat. Some people said that this was not possible. But in Englishman, Tim Severin, built a leather boat called Brendan and sailed it from Ireland
to Iceland and America. You can see the Brendan at Craggaunowen in Country Clare
in the west of Ireland. One of the most interesting Irish monasteries is on Skellig Michael. It is an island in the Atlantic sixteen km south-west of Ireland. It is a beautiful, windy place.
The island is 240m high, and in bad
weather no boats can get there. - One day two different Vikings ships came to a beautiful place in Ulster. Both groups of Vikings wanted to stay there and build towns, but thre where too many of them. - We must fight, said a Viking from the first ship. But a Viking of the second ship, "Let's race to the beach in our ships. The first man who holds* *the land in his hand can keep it. His people can stay, and the others must leave. So the two ships raced towards the beach. THEN A man in the second ship took out his sword, and cut off hi hand with it. Then he threw the hand over the heads of the men in the first ship. The hand fell on the beach, and its bloody finguers closed on the land. That is the story of the Red Hand of Ulster. You can see the Red Hand on the flags of Northern Ireland THE END The Red Hand of Ulster THE END
