The Englishman said " Hey my sons name is George and he was born on St Georges day"

The Scotsman said "Wow that's a coincidence my sons name is Andrew and he was born on St Andrews day"

The Irishman said " Well well well that is a coincidence, you should meet my son Pancake"

didnt kno that myself...

Saint Patrick was born in Roman Britain in the fifth century ad. He was captured at sixteen years old and carried off to Slavery in Ireland. Saint Patrick lived in Ireland for the next six years until one day while he was herding sheep he heard a voice in a dream telling him to go to the sea and get on a ship. After a journey of perhaps two hundred miles, Saint Patrick found the ship and returned to England.

Saint Patrick had been raised as a Christian, but according to his own writings was an indifferent Christian. This changed later. In another night time vision Saint Patrick was visited by a man who handed him letters containing 'the voice of the Irish people'. The letters asked Saint Patrick to return to Ireland and walk among them.

After overcoming difficulties, Saint Patrick, who was now a Bishop, returned to Ireland and preached the gospel, bringing Christianity to Ireland. The record is a little confused but it appears that Saint Patrick had the blessing of Pope Celestine for his mission to Ireland. This was probably given in the year 431 although some sources put Saint Patrick's arrival in 432. Together with other missionaries, Saint Patrick labored for many years. As well as bringing Christianity to Ireland, Saint Patrick brought literacy to Ireland, and Saint Patrick's own writings are among the earliest Irish literature.

Tradition suggests that Saint Patrick established the primatial see of Armagh. However, these things happened a long time ago, and it is not even clear if all the things attributed to Saint Patrick were done by the same person.

Saint Patrick has been honored by the Irish people for well over a thousand years, and Patrick is a common Irish name.

There is a legend that Saint Patrick banished all the snakes of Ireland. Some people object that there is no evidence that this is true. However, it is a fact that there are no wild snakes in Ireland although there are several types in England, including one poisonous one.
