Sauls Church

Sauls Church - Northern Ireland
Saul's Church - Co. Down

Saul Abbey is one mile from Downpatrick, the Latin name is "Saballum"; in Irish it is "Patrick's Barn". There is a story of how this curious name originated. An Irish chieftain named Dichu gave St. Patrick a barn to be used as a church, and gave him also a piece of ground to be used as a site for building a church upon, so "Patrick's Barn" arose. At Saul there is this replica of an early church from where St Patrick preached to the Irish.
