This year marks the 1400th anniversary of the death of St Columbanus.
Throughout the year there are a number of events being planned both locally and internationally across Europe to celebrate the influence of “the First European” and a man with many credits from arguably being Ireland’s first man of letters to also being the patron Saint of motorcyclists!
We hope that you will be able to join us throughout the year at some, or all of the events that will be taking place throughout the year. For a full breakdown of all that is taking place and event content including new additions to the calendar of events please visit www.friendsofcolumbanusbangor.co.uk.
