As you probably know by now, St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland.
He was born, it is believed, in Britain in the late 4th century of possibly Roman or Welsh ancestry, and when he was 16 years of age, was kidnapped and brought to Ireland as a slave by Irish slave owners.
Some years later it is thought he escaped back to Wales. He became a Christian and the story goes that he had a dream and in it he heard the Irish people calling him to come back and save them.
In the year 432 he returned to Ireland and began his journey to bring Christianity to the Irish. By the time of his death on March 17 in the year 461, he had set up monasteries, churches, and schools throughout Ireland.
Many legends grew up around around Saint Patrick including, that he drove the snakes out of Ireland and used the shamrock to explain the Trinity that there are three persons in the one God.
