When St. Patrick was expelled from Wicklow by the pagan natives, he sailed northward and landed on a small island off Skerries. In his honour it became known as St. Patrick's Island. When the saint arrived on the island he was accompanied by a goat which provided milk. From this island St. Patrick would come to the mainland to convert the people. While the saint was ashore on a missionary trip the people of Skerries visited the island and stole his goat. They killed, cooked and feasted on it.
When St. Patrick came back to the island he found his goat missing. This made him very angry and in two giant strides he reached the mainland. The first step took him to the back of Colt Island, the second to Red Island where he confronted the people of Skerries. They tried to deny having seen his goat but found they could only bleat. When they told the saint the truth about his goat their voices returned.
To this day St. Patrick's footprint, where he stepped on to the south side of Red Island, can be seen in the rocks at the bathing area while the nickname Skerries Goat is given to the people of the town to remind them of this deed.
