Saint Patrick’s Day is held on March 17th as a feast day to celebrate the life of St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. He was born in Roman Britain in the late 4th century, but was kidnapped at the age of 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave. He escaped but returned around 432 to convert the Irish to Christianity. By the time of his death in 461 he had established monasteries, churches, and schools. Brighten up Ireland's special day with these flags and don't forget the St Patrick's Day bunting.
