Tidbits on St. Patrick

1. St. Patrick was actually born in Britain.
2. St. Patrick did not drive the snakes out of Ireland.
3. Four leaf clovers are not one in a million.  It is estimated that there is one four leaf clover for every 10,000 three-leaf ones.
4. St. Patrick may have been the first person in recorded history to speak out against slavery.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Interesting! History and Irish history is endlessly fascinating.

  2. I agree, Savanna, incredibly fascinating!
