Great Names in Irish History
A collection of fine cast figures

A Briton of Romano-Celtic origins. Patrick was captured by Irish raiders at the age of sixteen and sold into bondage to herd sheep on the slopes of the Slemish Mountains in Antrim. He turned to God and spent many hours in solitary prayer. After six years he escaped and made his way home. There in a vision he saw a man who came from Ireland with letters and heard Irish voices imploring him to return.

He did so in 432 A.D. at the request of Pope Celestine after studying the priesthood under St. Germanus of Auxerre in France. Patrick established the first in a great chain of monasteries at Armagh and in his own words "baptised thousands" ordained clerics every-where and rejoiced to see the flock of the Lord growing splendidly. The site of his grave on Downpatrick and the summit of Croagh Patrick where he is said to have vanquished the snakes of Ireland have remained sites of pilgrimage for Irish Catholics ever since. The traditional anniversary of his death. 17th March has become Ireland's national day.

This range of 54mm pewter figures are mounted on wooden plinths with metal plaques that have the embossed name of the figure. Plinth colour and design may vary without notice.
The figures are painted by experienced Irish artists and were designed by internationally famous miniature designer Chris Tubb.

Antique Finish means that the figure is polished first then undercoated in a black paint and that is skillfully rubbed off the highlights and left in the creases and depths so the miniature is brought into strong contrast. This is an excellant alternative to fully painted versions of the miniature.
