Comedy, Adventure, Drama and Musical Variety
St Patrick’s Day is the celebration of the feast day, and the day of death, of Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Patrick was born in Roman Britain. He had a difficult youth, as he was seized by Irish raiders and carted away to Ireland, where he served as a slave for six years. He eventually escaped back to his home, where he became a deacon and bishop in the church. He later returned to Ireland as a missionary, and is now known for laying the foundation for Chritianity in Ireland. The shamrock became the symbol of St Patrick and because he used it to teach the Irish about the trinity.
