St. Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. He was born circa 387 and died on March 17 c 460 or 492 AD depending upon which historian is believed. From a website about St. Patrick, “He is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. He wrote two works for which he was known; the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and Epistola, which was a denunciation of the British mistreatment of Irish Christians.”
If a man who cannot count finds a four-leaf clover, is he lucky?

Anyone acquainted with Ireland knows that the morning of St. Patrick’s Day consists of the night of the seventeenth of March flavored strongly with the morning of the eighteenth.
May the Luck of the Irish be Yours Today!
Did you know that the St. Patrick’s Day custom came to America in 1737 and was first celebrated in Boston, Massachusetts? That’s 274 years of major celebrating and beer drinking! Today, people celebrate the day with parades, wearing of the green, and drinking beer. So lads and lasses have a bit o’ the Irish on us! Cheers!
