St Mirin

Saint Mirin, an  Irish Monk ( circa 565 died circa 620), is the patron saint of Paisley. His feast is celebrated on the 15th September. He  founded the first Church in Paisley, thought to be at Seedhill and after his death the shrine of Saint Mirin became a centre of pilgrimage.

Within Paisley Abbey there is a Chapel dedicated to Mirin containing a sculptured stone frieze depicting the life of the saint.

A sandstone pedestal  bearing the inscription  At Length Full of Sanctity and Miracles, Mirin Slept in the Lord at Paisley was erected in 2003 opposite St Mirin's Cathedral and  a bronze statue of the saint by Norman Galbraith  was mounted on the pedestal with a formal unveiling on the saint's feast day, Saturday September 15th 2007.
