Irish St Patrick's Day Recipes

St Patrick is believed to be buried in Downpatrick, County Down, Northern Ireland
St Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, which is the day of his death in 461 AD. At 16 years of age, young Patrick was captured from Wales by Irish raiders and taken to Ireland as a slave. He lived there for six years until he escaped and returned to his family in Wales.
After returning to Wales, Patrick entered the church and returned to Ireland as an ordained Bishop. His charge became the North and West areas of Ireland. However, little is known about the areas he worked in. By the seventh century, he had become the revered patron saint of Ireland.
