Apostle of the Irish, was not an Irishman, but it seems established that he was of Welsh parentage. His original name was Succath, and, In accordance with custom, when he was-consecrated as a bishop he was given a new name, 'that of Pa'triclus.

Named thus, he Went to Ireland and converted the Irish to Christianity. The shamrock soon gathered to itself a reputation for magic and as a remedy in disease. Eaten In the manner of watercress it was said to allay all fevers; picked when found near a wayside and worn next to the heart, it warded off evil spirits. If placed in a child's cradle tho little one would be exempt from the ills that trouble the young. Maidens had but to Pick on the leaven the name of the young man whose love they sought, pray to St.

Patrick. and bury the shamrock berieath a rosemary bush, and all would be wlel.
