Banishing the Serpents From Modern Ireland

Banishing the Serpents From Modern Ireland

I like this modern representation of the legend associated with St. Patrick. I especially like the reference to Michael Flatley (see the writing on the snakes).

A major part of the legend of St Patrick is that he drove all snakes out of Ireland forever. Of course this is probably just a metaphor for the fact that he drove out pagan beliefs and rituals, which are commonly associated with snakes.
