St. Patrick, beloved patron saint of Ireland, enjoys popularity far beyond the Emerald Isle border. As a youth Patrick was kidnapped and forced to work as a slave for the Druid rulers of Ireland. After escaping and completing his education, he returned as a bishop bringing the faith of Christianity to the Irish people he so dearly loved. His famous words are recorded in The Confession of St. Patrick and the verse on his breastplate. These St. Patrick gift ideas will warm the hearts of friends and family with a love for all things Irish.
