The Four Days Walks are to commemorate the four days it took St. Patrick to get through Mayo with all the people out bothering him for miracles and trying to sell him snakes (a very popular cottag industry in Ireland at the time).
When St. Patrick made it out of Mayo he banished snakes from Ireland so he would never have to be bothered about them again.
