This video got shown to our whole school. At st Patrick's day of course. Image copyright PAcemaker Image caption Bedecked in green, the 2018 St Patrick's Day parade in Belfast was typical of how the day is celebrated St Patrick's Day is celebrated across the world by Irish people, their descendants and anyone else who wants to join in. The day, known in the modern era for huge parades, turning things green and having a drink, has, on occasion, led to excess. However, it seems that a little tipsiness has always been the way to remember the saint. The Book of Armagh, from the 9th Century, said all Irish monasteries and churches were to celebrate Patrick with three days and nights of feasting. The great Irish folklorist Kevin Dannaher described the St Patrick's Day of 300 years ago. "In most parts of Ireland the men repaired to the local tavern after church to the drink the 'pota Pádraig' or 'St Patrick's pot'. Seldom did the drinking stop at one pot. " Though he did write that "drowning the shamrock... by no means implies that it is necessary to get drunk in doing so". St Patrick 'liked a drink' But where did the association between saint and alcohol come from? Stiofán Ó Cadhla is a senior lecturer in folklore and ethnology in University College Cork. He said that folklore indicates that St Patrick himself liked to have a drink. St Patrick's Day now sees huge parades celebrating Irish culture but that was not always the case "One of the narratives associated with him is about 'peaca an tomhai s '… the 'sin of mismeasure' when St Patrick enters a public house and orders his pint. "The publican gives him the drink but he has left the drink shorter than he should, he doesn't give him his full measure. "Patrick corrects him and tells him: 'You haven't realised that this sin of mismeasure is one of the worst sins that you can commit'. " Diarmuid Ó Giolláin, professor of anthropology at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, USA, said St Patrick's Day has always been marked not only because it was a celebration of the patron saint but also because a dispensation allowed the Lenten fast to be broken - meat to be eaten and alcohol drunk - whilst Christians everywhere else were fasting. Who was St Patrick? Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, he lived in the 5th century AD and is understood to have played a major part in converting the Irish to Christianity. While St Patrick really existed, and some of his writings survive, his value does not really come from historical details but from the inspiration of a man who returned to the country where he had been a child slave, in order to bring the message of Christ. He is traditionally associated with the shamrock plant, which he used to explain the Christian doctrine of the Holy Trinity. Diarmuid Ó Giolláin explained that drinking on St Patrick's Day was an important aspect of the religious festival and "a break in the rigours of lent". Stiofán Ó Cadhla points out that St Patrick's Days falls close to the Spring Equinox. Press Eye Belfast's Holyland is home to many students and has seen trouble on St Patrick's Day in the past "You can expect exuberance at this time of year, " he said. "It is tied up with the time of the year and the return to growth, everyone wanted to have their potatoes planted on St Patrick's Day. "Drowning the shamrock in St Patrick's pot, that is to say putting your shamrock in a drink, is one of the most traditional ways of celebrating. "John Carr wrote in the early 19th century… that around this time of the year the country people assemble and get very tipsy, they walk through the streets wearing the shamrock in their hats, whiskey is drank in copious libations, and the merry devotees continue until the greater part of the next day in honour of Sheelagh, St Patrick's wife, " he said, adding that St Sheelagh is now mostly forgotten today. Beginnings of change Dr Ó Cadhla added that when the Catholic Church regrouped in Ireland in the wake of the potato famine it took the opportunity to clamp down on some traditional practices around the saint. "St Patrick's Day would have been associated with fair days and large gatherings of people in certain locations and at certain wells. "The church step in… asserting themselves, and trying to wean the people off some of those ideas.

" Traditional belief systems and the Catholic tendencies have come to an accommodation. combining to become a folkloric belief and behaviour, he explained. There were always concerns that some of the behaviour surrounding the festival "did not fit in with the strict idea of St Patrick", Dr Ó Cadhla said: "There is Saint Patrick of the hagiographers [people who write about the lives of saints] but of course there is Saint Patrick beloved of Irish people, who is like one of themselves. "Of course, St Patrick understands and loves the Irish people and is one of them in this celebration. " The parades Dr Ó Cadhla said that the great public parades connected with the patron saint are a relatively recent thing, in Ireland at least. "I think people of a certain age will recall how poorly patronised those parades were and how people really didn't tend to take them that seriously. " Getty Images Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke Of Cambridge attend the annual Irish Guards St Patrick's Day Parade He suggested that the parades may have a military origin and that British Army bands would have come out and paraded in the 19th Century. The British Army's Royal Irish Regiment celebrates St Patrick's Day to this day, as do the Irish Defence Forces. 'American razzmatazz' However, he stressed that the "formal, militaristic" nature of today's parades are greatly influenced by Irish America. Prof Ó Giolláin agreed - he said changes in Irish society and globalisation have led to huge change in how St Patrick's Day is celebrated in Ireland. "I think the model has been the American St Patrick's Day celebrations, the American razzmatazz. " Chicago River is turned green for the 2018 St Patrick's Day in Chicago, United States He sees the day as having moved away from the concept of a national day, away from church and state patronage, to representing a global dimension of Irishness. "It has been taken as an opportunity to tourism but also to promote Ireland as a country which is more diverse and more open to the world, " he said. "The change reflects changes in Irish society. ".

Thank you. 17 March 2015 Last updated at 06:56 The traditional dyeing of the Chicago River marked Saint Patrick's Day festivities in Illinois As people across the world prepare to celebrate the life of one of the world's most famous Irishmen, was St Patrick actually Welsh? For many, St Patrick's Day commemorations will centre around pub crawls and street parades, but in one small village in west Wales a more sedate celebration will be taking place. Patrick, or Padrig in Welsh, was born around 387 AD and was known as Maewyn (Welsh for devoted friend) Succat (a Pagan term for warlike). He is believed to have come from Bannavem Taburniae, which could be Banwen in Neath Port Talbot, where every year a service is held in his honour. The annual event sees a small collection of residents, historians and school children congregate beside a plaque left in memory of the patron saint of Ireland, before they retire to a community centre for a cup of tea. St Patrick is remembered across the world for his missionary work in Ireland Although it is much lower key than many other St Patrick's Day celebrations, residents believe it is important to keep the link with Patrick - who would be their most famous son - alive. One man who has a personal interest in promoting the connection is author and historian George Brinley Evans. "My grandfather had a small holding by the side of the road which he farmed. When I was about eight years old I was told St Patrick was born on that land, " he said. "It has been said for years he came from Banwen, and in 2004 we had a beautiful stone by the side of the road to mark this. People come from Ireland to visit it. "Academics have looked at the idea that St Patrick was born in Wales. Although you can't really say he was a Welshman because it was Roman Britain, " he added. St Patrick's upbringing Born in Bannavem Taberniae His father Calpurnius, was a 'decurion', a kind of town councillor, and a church deacon. His grandfather Potitus was a priest He lived in a villa with servants and helped in the fields until the age of seven when he was sent to school He was abducted and forced into slavery for six years as a teenager While there is no firm evidence to prove St Patrick was Welsh - with Scotland also mooted as his birthplace - some argue that several things point to it. Historian and Onllwyn community councillor Tom Marston said: "No tessellated Roman villa or plaques saying he was born here have been found. "I think the strongest evidence is the persistence of the notion among local people that it was so. Next is the written confession of the man himself where he mentions the name and description of his birthplace itself. "But for me it is a line of wordplay in The Confession of St Patrick, I quote: 'I was picked a stone out of the bog', the word stone being a play on his name Patrick and bog being a play on the name of birthplace Banwen. " A stone marking ceremony at the saint's alleged birthplace during a St Patrick's Day parade in Banwen in 2008 As a teenager St Patrick was said to have been captured by pirates along with his sister and sold into slavery. He worked as a shepherd in Ireland until he managed to escape and board a ship home. He is said to have been ordained as a priest before returning to Ireland where he played a significant role in converting the country to Christianity, becoming its first bishop. The training he received to do this missionary work is, again, said by some to have taken place in Wales at the Church of Llantwit Major. A young Irish dancer marches in the London St Patrick's Day parade Founded in 500 AD by the Welsh monk Illtud, the Church of Llantwit Major, or Llanilltud Fawr, is believed to be Britain's earliest centre of learning. St Illtud established a monastic school of over 1, 000 pupils, which is said to have included Wales' patron saint St David as well as St Patrick. The Rector of Llantwit Major, Huw Butler said: "It is traditionally said that Patrick studied in Llantwit, but I think it is highly unlikely that he did. "It was the first seat of learning when it was established, and many ecclesiastical students were travellers who moved around extensively, so it is hard to know who actually did study here. "There is a stained glass window which features St Patrick, but St Illtud established the school here in 500 and Patrick died before this. " A reveller at the Mayor of London's St Patrick's Day Parade and Festival in London Despite the lack of firm evidence of his Welsh connections, St Patrick will be remembered this year, as he is every year, by locals in the village which has claimed him as its own. Historian George Brinley Evan added: "I hope every year more and more people learn about the fact St Patrick was born in Wales, and more and more people come and visit. It would create jobs for people and St Patrick would be helping the village.

Patrick’s Mountain Patrick’s Mountain, also known as Croagh Patrick, ( in Irish, spelled, Cruach Phádraig), is a two thousand foot high mountain and an important site of pilgrimage in County Mayo. This mountian has been a site of devoted pilgrimages for many years. Croagh Patrick had been a site of early Pagan pilgrimages even before Saint Patrick for summer solstice gatherings, Today, on the last Sunday in July, known as Reek Sunday, thousands of people climb the mountain. Legend says that St. fasted on this mountain’s summit for forty days in the 400s AD. Remains of a small chapel called “Teampall Phadraig” from St. Patrick’s own time was found near the summit. In 1905 a new chapel has since been built. During the summer, the little church is open every day. Mass is celebrated in the church on Reek Sunday and on 15 August. Visitors make the climb to the summit in about three hours. Saint Patrick’s Well, Clonmel Some think that this little Irish stone cross was where Saint Patrick passed through and may have used it as a place to baptize locals into the Christian faith. The stone statue was erected in 1958 by the Saint Patrick’s Day Society. The Rock of Cashel Legend says that St. Patrick visited Cashel to meet the powerful Aonghus and also baptized the king there. The Rock of Cashel, Co Tipperary is steeped in legend. Down Cathedral – St Patrick’s Grave Stone In 1900 a stone was placed in the graveyard of County Down Cathedral, the site where a Benedictine Monastery was built in 1187. According to legend, this memorial stone made from a slab of granite from the nearby Mourne Mountains is said to mark St. Patrick’s burial place. According to centuries of tradition, Saints Brigid, Patrick and Columcille are all buried in this same grave. Sanctuary of St Patrick, Lough Derg, Co. Donegal Christian have been making the pilgrimage to the sacred site of St Patrick’s Purgatory, Lough Derg for centuries. This is a unique island of deep prayer, and is a part of Irish Christian Heritage. This small island resides in a quiet lake. Saint Patrick’s Cathedral Dublin Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin was built to honor Ireland’s patron saint. This cathedral stands next to the famous well legend to have been where Saint Patrick baptized new Christian believers when he visited Dublin. Máméan Pilgrimage in Connemara Thirty miles away from Croagh Patrick the lesser known Mámean pilgrim site dating back to the 400s AD. At the summit of the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara is the ancient pilgrim site dedicated to St. Patrick lies in a rugged pass called Máméan. Tradition says that St. Patrick traveled through Joyce Country and climbed Mámean to give his blessing to Connemara. Before St. Patrick’s time, the location was connected with the Lughnasa Solstice festivals. Like many pagan sites it was Christianized, evolving into Reek Sunday – the last Sunday in July or the first Sunday in August. The site is marked by a holy well, St. Patrick’s Bed – a cleft in the rock and a circle of stone crosses represent the Stations of the Cross. Completing the shrine is a Mass Rock – used during the eighteenth century penal times when Catholicism was outlawed. St. Patrick’s followers built a small chapel beside St. Patrick’s bed, and a statue depicting St. Patrick as a shepherd. Today parishioners pilgrimage three times a year on St. Patrick’s Day, Good Friday and the first Sunday in August. Before they leave, they leave an offering of a variety of objects.
I am patrick watch full online. I AM PATRICK Watch full article. Why not. Patrick's father, Calpornius, held both civic and clerical offices when Patrick was born to him in the late fourth century (c. A. D. 390). Although the family lived in the village of Bannavem Taberniaei, in Roman Britain, Patrick would one day become the most successful Christian missionary in Ireland, its patron saint, and the subject of legends. The Story of St. Patrick Patrick's first encounter with the land to which he would devote his life was an unpleasant one. He was kidnapped at age 16, sent to Ireland (around County Mayo), and sold into slavery. While Patrick worked there as a shepherd, he developed a deep faith in God. One night, during his sleep, he was sent a vision of how to escape. So much he tells us in his autobiographical "Confession. " Unlike the work of the same name by the theologian, Augustine, Patrick's "Confession" is short, with few statements of religious doctrine. In it, Patrick describes his British youth and his conversion, for although he was born to Christian parents, he did not consider himself Christian before his captivity. Another purpose of the document was to defend himself to the very church that had sent him to Ireland to convert his former captors. Years before Patrick wrote his "Confession", he wrote an angry Letter to Coroticus, the British King of Alcluid (later called Strathclyde), in which he condemns him and his soldiers as compatriots of the demons because they had captured and slaughtered many of the Irish people Bishop Patrick had just baptized. Those they didn't kill would be sold to "heathen" Picts and Scots. Although personal, emotional, religious, and biographical, these two pieces and Gildas Bandonicus' "Concerning the Ruin of Britain" ("De Excidio Britanniae") provide the main historical sources for fifth-century Britain. Upon Patrick's escape from his approximately six years of slavery, he went back to Britain, and then to Gaul where he studied under St. Germain, bishop of Auxerre, for 12 years before returning again to Britain. There he felt a calling to return as a missionary to Ireland. He stayed in Ireland for another 30 years, converting, baptizing, and setting up monasteries. Various legends have grown up concerning St. Patrick, the most popular of the Irish saints. St. Patrick was not well-educated, a fact he attributes to early captivity. Due to this, it was with some reluctance that he was sent as a missionary to Ireland, and only after the first missionary, Palladius, had died. Perhaps it's because of his informal schooling in the meadows with his sheep that he came up with the clever analogy between the three leaves of the shamrock and the Holy Trinity. At any rate, this lesson is one explanation for why St. Patrick is associated with a shamrock. St. Patrick is also credited with driving the snakes out of Ireland. There were probably no snakes in Ireland for him to drive out, and it is very likely that the story was meant to be symbolic. Since he converted the heathen, the snakes are thought to stand for the pagan beliefs or evil. Where he was buried is a mystery. Among other places, a chapel to St. Patrick at Glastonbury claims he was interred there. A shrine in County Down, Ireland, claims to possess a jawbone of the saint which is requested for childbirth, epileptic fits, and to avert the evil eye. While we don't know exactly when he was born or died, this Roman British saint is honored by the Irish, especially in the United States, on March 17 with parades, green beer, cabbage, corned beef, and general revelry. While there is a parade in Dublin as the culmination of a week of festivities, Irish celebrations on St. Patrick's Day itself are predominantly religious. Sources.
St Patrick myths and legends St Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland and is credited with having established Christianity in the country more than 1500 years ago. His story is partly fact, partly legend and partly and merging of the two. In popular imagination he is remembered for supposedly ridding the country of snakes. He is said to have explained the concept of the Holy Trinity by likening it to a shamrock, and in the process turning a small clover into a symbol for Ireland. He is said to have debated with Celtic druids and talked with mythical Celtic figures in stories which are highly entertaining if not reliable. What is certain is that he orchestrated the seismic shift that saw Ireland abandon the pagan religions that had dominated the country for centuries, and adopt the Christian religion that would dominate it for centuries to come. It was a remarkable achievement, even when the legendary elements are stripped out, making St Patrick one of the most important figures in Irish history. Documented evidence – The Confessio and the Letter against Coroticu Much of what we know about him comes from two documents that he wrote once he was established as the head of the church in Ireland. The Confessio describes aspects of his life and how he came to be in Ireland; the Letter against Coroticus is a protest against the slaughter of Christians by a raiding party from Roman Britain. In Confessio he describes how he was the son of Roman official called Calpornius living in Britain. He doesn’t specify dates so it is difficult to be precise about when he lived other than to say it was during the 5th century. During this period, Roman power was on the wane throughout Europe. They were losing their iron grip on Britain, which encouraged Irish pirates and raiding parties to mount smash and grab attacks on unguarded British towns. The young Patrick was captured by Irish raiders In the Confessio, Patrick says that when he was 16 he was captured by Irish raiders who attacked his home at Bannaventium Taburniae. Scholars can’t place this precisely but most agree it was somewhere on the west side of Britain, possibly Wales. The raiders took Patrick back to Ireland and sold him into slavery. He was taken about 200 miles west, possibly to Co Mayo, where he was made to herd cattle and sheep for six years. The Roman Empire was Christian by the 5th century but Patrick says he was not religious at this time and had little faith. However, in his isolation and despair, he began to find comfort in God. He wrote: ‘The love of God and the fear of Him came to me more and more, and my faith increased, and my spirit was stirred, so that in one day I used to say up to 100 prayers and at night as many more, and I stayed in the forests and on the mountains, and before daylight I used to be roused to prayer in snow and frost and rain. ’ God spoke to Patrick After six years in Ireland, Patrick describes how he heard a voice telling him to escape and return home. A ship would be waiting for him when he arrived at the shore. Patrick took this to be the voice of God and obeyed immediately. He walked the 200 miles, careful to avoid recapture, until he arrived at the Irish Sea. As the voice had predicted, there was a ship ready to sail and Patrick managed to persuade the captain to take him on board. He eventually made it back home and was reunited with his parents. He then returned to his education, determined to make up for lost time. He sat in classes with children much younger than he was and was embarrassed by his poor standard in Latin. “I have not studied like the others, ” he later wrote in Confessio. Patrick did eventually catch up and was ordained as a priest. Vox Hiberniae – the Voice of the Irish Throughout this time, Patrick describes how he never forgot his time in Ireland and the people he had met. He had another dream in which he saw a man coming from Ireland. The man handed him a letter with the heading, Vox Hiberniae – the Voice of the Irish. He said that as he read the letter, he heard the people he had known in Ireland calling to him: “We beg you, holy boy, to come and walk among us once again. ” The memory of the voices he heard in the dream stayed with him for many years. He wrote: It completely broke my heart, and I could read no more and woke up. ” Patrick said the dream left him in no doubt as to what he had to do: return to Ireland to preach the Gospel and convert the Irish to Christianity. St Patrick – Bishop of the Irish His wish came true when the Roman church in Britain appointed him Bishop of the Irish, and sent him to nurture and expand Ireland’s growing Christian community. Patrick says virtually nothing about his achievements in Ireland and his humility means it is difficult to establish when he arrived, what he did and where he visited. However, most scholars believe he arrived back in Ireland in 432 and spent most of his time working in the north. He established the diocese of Armagh which was to be a major seat of Christianity for centuries to come. He also preached tirelessly across the region and was particularly prominent in Templepatrick, Saul, Downpatrick, Lough Derg and Croagh Patrick – all of which became closely associated with him and in some cases took his name. Uí Néill dynasty ensured his safety In order to succeed, Patrick would almost certainly have needed the support of the Irish kings and clan leaders. The Uí Néill dynasty were the dominant force in the north and it’s likely they adopted him and ensured his safety. He was clearly pleased with the reception he received and the success of his mission for he wrote: “I cannot be silent about the great benefits and the wonderful grace that the Lord has deigned to bestow upon me in the land of my captivity. ” Patrick’s mission was not without its setbacks. He was dismayed and furious when a group of his Irish converts were slaughtered by a raiding party of Christians from Britain led by Coroticus. Patrick wrote a letter in protest to Coroticus in which he described how the converts were: “newly baptised, in their white clothing – the oil still shining on their heads – cruelly butchered and slaughtered by the sword…oh greedy wolves, they have gorged themselves with the congregation of the Lord, which was increasing so well in Ireland, with the closest care, and made up of the sons of Irish raiders and the daughters of kings who had become monks and virgins of Christ. I cannot say how many. So may the wrong done not please you! And even into hell may it give you no pleasure. ” Church structure reverted to monastries Christianity survived and thrived thanks to the work of St Patrick but the church structure he established did not. He had tried to set up a diocesan structure based on parishes. This worked well in Europe but not in Ireland because there were no towns on which to base it. After St Patrick’s death, the church took a different turn with monasteries being the main centres rather than parishes and dioceses. This became the norm in Ireland for several centuries. St Patrick gave Christianity a firm foundation in Ireland that survives to this day. In the process he became national icon whose name is synonymous with Ireland. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated all across the world, and although those celebrations have little to do with religion, they still show how important a figure St Patrick is to Ireland.
