Beannachtaí Lá Fhéile Pádraig Daoibh
Saint Patrick, or Naomh Pádraig as he is known in Gaelic, was one of the most remarkable men of his age. We are fortunate in that two Latin letters have survived that were written by Saint Patrick, his 'Confessio' and a letter to the soldiers of Coroticus called in Latin the 'Epistola.' In his Confessio he gives a short account of his life and his mission as a Christian. Patrick was born Celtic Britain as most people know, his father was a deacon and grandfather a priest (who could be married in those days) and were early leaders in the Christian Church there. He was captured by Irish raiders and the rest is as they say, 'history.'
