St. Patrick’s Day 17th March
Featured in the March 2012 handbook.
St. Patrick, is the patron saint of Ireland, and is one of Christianity's most widely known figures. But for all his celebrity, his life remains somewhat of a mystery. Many of the stories traditionally associated with St. Patrick, including the famous account of his banishing all the snakes from Ireland, are false, the products of hundreds of years of exaggerated storytelling.
