Learn a wee bit about St. Patrick
The feast of St. Patrick’s Day, held traditionally on March 17, recognizes the date of St. Patrick’s death in 461 C.E. Born in Roman-controlled Britain in the late 4th Century, St. Patrick was kidnapped at age 16 and enslaved in Ireland. After escaping bondage, he returned about 432 C.E. to convert Irish pagans to Christianity. By the time of his death, he founded monasteries, churches and schools. Potatoes, which typically flourish in even poor quality soil, have long been a staple of Irish cuisine. They took on even greater cultural significance following the Great Famine between 1845 and 1849 when a blight wiped out successive potato crops.
