In 2011, on a bright sunny day in Enniscorthy, with the inevitable odd shower. This gathering of people enhanced the memory of loved ones with flowers, songs, and prayers.

 

“Although the ancient tradition of the pattern or patrún (patron) as a celebration of a local a local saints feast day has largely died out in Ireland, the custom continues in County Wexford in the form of annual gatherings at local graveyards to pray for and tend to the graves of deceased relatives ostensibly a religious event, and a pattern day is also an important social occasion in the local community.”
