Storyline

A young Christian boy attends a druid worship that is attacked by invading Irish tribes. Taken captive, he is taken back to Ireland to become a slave. Enduring many hardships, he finds comfort and eventually salvation in his faith. After several years, he escapes back to England, where he joins a convent to prove his faith. His greatest desire is to return to Ireland to convert the Irish to Christianity. Years later, he is given the opportunity. Upon setting foot on Irish soil, all snakes are automatically driven from the land. He then overcomes many obstacles, including disagreements with the British Cardinal (Malcolm McDowell), to fulfill his destiny, and ultimately being given Sainthood. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Goofs

Several of the companions of St. Patrick are shown wearing what is obviously a Franciscan habit. St. Francis of Assisi was not born until 1182 and did not gather an order around him until the 1200s, 800 years after St. Patrick. See more »

Beautiful And Fun To Watch- A Feel Good Movie!
23 February 2005 | by soblessedSee all my reviews

I loved this movie,but since I know nothing about the story or legend of St. Patrick,I watched it as a fantasy and enjoyed it very much. After reading the other reviews here I can agree with the historical inaccuracies,and that is a shame,if this was indeed meant to be a factual retelling. But as the title of the DVD said it was "The Legend of Ireland" I did not go into watching this movie with any expectations of historical truths. Therefore,I thoroughly enjoyed this film,and it truly is beautiful and a definite"Feel Good" movie!It has peaked my interest to do some more research on St. Patrick and Ireland as well.If you enjoy movies about how God can work in and change people's lives as I do,I do not think you will be disappointed in this film.
