To set sail for the US in a little boat...

Today is the feast day of St Brendan - who some believe reached America long before Columbus. It's not a tenet of Catholic belief that he did, we just are open to the idea that St Brendan may have.

There was an orchestral suite for uilleann* pipes composed in 1980, called The Brendan Voyage.  Below is a clip.
 *'uilleann' means elbow in the Irish language.
