My brother thought it was "Dear saint of Argyll", which historically might indeed be true, since Argyll was part of Strathclyde, a British kingdom, when Patrick was alad, and he was the right side of the country toi be kidnapped by Irish slavers.

But that bit about the CHILDREN resisting unto death.... same as in Faith of Our Fathers, the adults were always wishing the children to die for the fate, we thought, if there was any dying to be done it should be the adults who do it.
