Croagh Patrick: Information for Pilgrims
Pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick
Every Pilgrim who ascend the mountain on St Patrick's Day or within the octave or anytime during the months of June, July, August & September and prays in or near the Chapel for the intentions of our Holy Father, the Pope may gain a plenary indulgence on the condition on going to Confession and receiving Holy Communion on the summit or within the week
The performing of penitential exercises – the stations of the Reek – is a very ancient custom. It is not possible from the records to state the exact date the stations of the Reek started, but it must have been soon after Saint Patrick’s visit.
