Christian missionary Saint Patrick is the apostle and patron saint of Ireland.
This essay paints a very brief biographic sketch of the man and his role in introducing Christianity to supplant that nation’s druidic religion and pagan traditions.
Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17, is a major religious holiday in Ireland and is a popular holiday in other parts of the world, especially American cities with a large Irish population. Whether as a day for remembrance of Christian missionary traditions or a day to celebrate all things Irish—the green and gold, shamrocks and luck—the holiday stands as a memorial to the missionary work of this man.
