The story of his life and culinary influence on Ireland and the world

Saint Patrick His Life story

Saint Patrick his life story.  Saint Patrick’s Day is on March 17th, but have you thought about who he was and how his influence inspired so many Irish traditions? How much do you know about his life 1600 years ago.  During his time in Ireland he was instrumental in bringing the written word and religion to the country.  He also influenced the culinary traditions of the country.
Saint Patrick is celebrated and honored around the world.  We wanted to know more about the man and how he has become celebrated on March 17th.  We asked our friends with Ireland Tourism to point us in the right direction to learn more about him and his journey through Ireland.
