Did you know that...?
St. Patrick was not Irish
Although Saint Patrick is known for introducing Christianity to Ireland, he was actually born to Roman parents in Scotland or Wales.
There were no snakes around for St. Patrick to banish from Ireland
Legend says that Saint Patrick stood on top of an Irish hillside and banished snakes from Ireland. However, researches suggest snakes were never on the Emerald Isle in the first place!
Leprechauns are based on Celtic fairies
The original Irish name for these creatures of folklore is “lobaircin,” meaning “small-bodied fellow.” It is believed that leprechauns stems from Celtic fairies which are tiny men and women who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil.
