Born around 387 A.D. near Kilpatrick, Scotland, St. Patrick was captured by a raiding party when he was a teen and brought to Ireland. After spending several years as a slave, St. Patrick escaped to Britain and became a priest. He returned to Ireland and converted the Irish people before his death on March 17, 461.
St. Patrick medals make the perfect gift for a proud Irishman or engineer. Those who fear snakes may also find comfort in wearing this medal.
