11. St Mirin Chapel

explore11.jpgMirin reredos

Christianity was first brought to Paisley by the sixth century Irish monk Mirin. This remarkable medieval reredos depicts scenes from his life, as that life is recorded in the Aberdeen Breviary. Here we see a king of Ireland suffering the pains of labour, transferred from his wife, as a punishment from Mirin for not allowing him to evangelise in his territory. The king relented and was restored to 'normal' health.
