St. Patrick by Sophie

He was born in Wales He was kidnapped by the pirates when he was 16.  He was taken to Dublin. The pirates made him into a slave. He was a slave for 6 years. He escaped and went to France.

He became a priest and then a bishop. The pope told him to go back to Dublin he told the people about God and got rid of the snakes. He made lots of churches.

He died on March 17th in the year 461 AD. Patrick’s day is on March 17th because of this.

My favourite thing about Saint Patrick’s Day is the carnival because you can go on rides.
