Did you know that…?
* He wasn’t Irish. He was born in England.
* His name was very, very strange.
* He was captured by pirates when he was a child.
* Pirates sold him as a slave in Ireland.

* After six years living in Ireland, he ran away and he came back to England.
* He had a dream: Irish people asked him to go back to Ireland and tell them about God.
* He became a bishop.
* He loved Ireland and Irish people.
* He died at the age of seventy-three.
* He died on 17th March, 416.
