Two years ago the publishers of this book, having decided to commission a new Life of the Apostle of Ireland, were looking for a suitable : John Hennig. There's an overview of the saint's life on the History of St Patrick page, but read on below for some of the myths about his mission in Ireland. The Shamrock Perhaps the best-known legend of Saint Patrick involves the shamrock, the little plant that has gone on to become famous throughout the world as a symbol of Irish heritage. The Legend of St Patrick. The legend of St Patrick is a symbolic version of his life as Patron Saint of Ireland and what his life means to the Irish people. St Patrick legends are a blend of fact and fantasy. It's difficult to tell the difference sometimes. St. Patrick, (flourished 5th century, Britain and Ireland; feast day March 17), patron saint and national apostle of Ireland, credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland and probably responsible in part for the Christianization of the Picts and Anglo-Saxons. He is known only from two short works, the Confessio.

Now Patrick's race was of the Britons of Dumbarton. Calpurn was his father's name, a high priest was he. Otid (Potitus) was the name of his grandfather: he was a deacon.

A.D. ). Although the family lived in the village of Bannavem Taberniaei, in Roman Britain, Patrick would one day become the most successful Christian missionary in Ireland, its patron saint, and the subject of legends. Oisin dies and St Patrick lives on, symbolising the triumph of Christianity over the pagan gods of the Celts. In a similar story, taken from a 12th century document called, Acallam na Senóach, St Patrick chances upon Oisin and another Fianna warrior called Rónáin.
