St Augustine's Tapestry

This design depicts St. Columba and his followers leaving Derry for Iona. In exile they created beautiful manuscripts spreading Christianity and peace making.  St Augustine's church has been recognised as the original monastic site of St Columba in Derry.  The church is referenced in the tiles, bottom left of the design and the yellow cross on the right.  The oak leaf represents Derry.
