Thread Name: BS: St. Patrick was a Welshman...
Subject: BS: St. Patrick was a Welshman...
A verse came up in the 'Best represents English Folksong' thread makes that claim, but was he really? I seem to remember he was from Bristol, which would make him an Englishman, or maybe Briton in those days, although possibly of Gallic descent. Not far as the seagull flies, of course. Can any scholar clear this up for me? Chris.
