History of St. Patrick
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. His real name was Maewyn and it is thought that he was Scottish or Welsh. He first came to Ireland as a slave. It was during his time as a slave that he converted to Christianity. After many years, he escaped and returned home to his family and trained to become a priest.
St. Patrick returned to Ireland as a bishop. He spent many years traveling the country, building churches and converting the pagan Irish people to Christianity. His time in Ireland lasted 30 years and he died on March 17th AD431. He is said to be buried in Downpatrick, County Down in Ireland.
