Kerry’s Sailor Saint

There was a very large attendance at the Rose Hotel, Tralee on Sunday 15 May for the screening of a 1.5 hour long documentary on the life of Kerry’s patron saint, St Brendan the Navigator. Following extensive research by Dr Declan Downey of University College, Dublin, Sean Quinlan of the Rattoo Heritage Society and the project proposer Eamon O’Reilly over the past six years they managed to establish beyond any reasonable doubt that St Brendan was the first to reach the Americas, centuries before the Vikings and Chrstopher Columbus in 1492. The film was dedicated to the late Tim Severin who replicated the Brendan Voyage some years ago. At the conclusion of the film which was well received by the audience, Bishop Ray Browne of Kerry presented appreciation plaques to Dr Declan, Sean Quinlan and Billy Donegan for their extensive research and work on the project. The film is now available in DVD format.
