Just been reading some of The Anecdotage of Glasgow (by Robert Alison, 1892.) at ElectricScotland.com and found this which might be of interest:

Robert Alison wrote:Story of the Mound of Dovehill

DURING. the sojourn of St. Mungo in Wales, which is said to have lasted for eleven years, civil war raged in the kingdom of Cumbria, or Strathclyde; but a decisive battle at Arthuret, on the borders of Dumfriesshire and Cumberland, or, as some think, at Airdrie, settled the dispute in favour of Roderick the Bountiful, who, it is said, had been baptised by St. Patrick in Ireland. One of the first acts of his reign was to send to St. Mungo in Wales, praying him most urgently to return. The saint complied with his request, and his re-entry was one of triumphal rejoicing.

Either at the time of his return, or shortly after it, St. Mungo was preaching to the people on a plain, but as he could not be seen or heard by a large portion of the multitude, he manifested his miraculous power by causing the ground on which he stood to rise up into a mound, and he then continued his remarks, to the better edification of his hearers. Tradition has it that the place where this event occurred was at what is now known as Dovehill, off the Gallowgate, a little to the east of Glasgow Cross, and that this incident gave rise to the motto of the city, "Let Glasgow flourish by the preaching of the Word."


And today the site of Dove Hill,now Little Dove Hill, is comemmorated by Glasgow's oldest chippie!

Let Glasgow Flourish by the Use of Salt n Vinegar :D
