Full episode: http://bit.ly/1gyVmSn Join Globe Trekker Ian Wright as he attempts a gruelling hike up Croagh Patrick, where Ireland's patron saint, St Patrick,spent 40 days of lent on this mountain, fighting demons and banishing serpents from the land.
This vigil made the 2513-foot quartz peak a sacred pilgrimage site for Catholics. About 40 to 50 thousand pilgrims trek up this mountain to the top -- following in the footsteps of St. Patrick, and apparently some of them even do it in their bare feet.
