Thread Name: BS: St Patrick an Englishman ?
Subject: RE: BS: St Patrick an Englishman ?
T in OK. There are several schools of thought on Patric's origin, but most agree it was what today is western England, probably Wales. He is usually considered the son of a Roman by a Celtic mother. He is from that time when "absolutes" should be taken with a grain or two of salt. There are other persons of "English" origin who have made major contributions to Irish lore and history, Arthur Guiness and Jack Charlton among them.
