This painting depicts the imminent arrival of St Patrick in Ireland in AD 430. Irish warriors descend a cliff to investigate. St Patrick stands silhouetted against the sail of a longboat. This is Robinson's preparatory design for a mural in Dublin Art Gallery organised by Sir Hugh Lane. Robinson won the competition but the project was never completed.
