History of St.Patrick and the Festival

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. He was born in AD 389 at Bannavem Taburniae, a Roman village in Northamptonshire.

When 16 years old Patrick was captured and sold as a slave to an Irish farmer. Six years later, in Armagh, he began the conversion of the Irish to Christianity.

St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on 17th March in Ireland and throughout the Celtic nations. A shamrock is traditionally worn on this day. The shamrock symbolises the Holy Trinity. In Ireland St. Patrick's Day has come to represent nationalism and great feasting and drinking Pota Padraig or St. Patrick's Pot takes place on this day.
