Staff Of Saint Patrick

The mysterious disappearance of the staff which, quite probably, was used by the saint himself, when it was supposedly thrown on a bonfire in front of Christ Church cathedral in the reign of Henry VIII, is described in the final chapter of Rutherfurd's first Irish book. But was it destroyed? Evidence exists that it survived, and this becomes part of the plot in the second book, at the time of the Battle of the Boyne.
