St. Patrick was a Welshman!
St. Patrick, as a young man, was kidnapped from the shores of Wales and taken to Ireland as a slave.. He escaped many years later to arrive back home to discover Christianity through the teachings of St. David. He returned to Ireland as a missionary. The story of him driving the snakes out of Ireland was a euphemism for satan.. Snakes you get it??
So there is my history in a bottle.
