March the 17th is Saint Patrick’s Day, the day when we celebrate the life of Ireland’s national saint, and all things Irish. To mark the occasion and join in the fun, we’ve written this quiz with questions on the life of Patrick himself, along with some light-hearted Irish myths, legends and folklore.
Patrick is remembered for converting the pagan Irish to the new faith of Christianity. But did you know he was also an author? Amazingly we have his autobiography and a letter he wrote condemning the British for their mistreatment of the Irish.
And now it’s time for the quiz. Have a go and see whether you have the luck of the Irish! See if you can score full marks with your knowledge of Saint Patrick and of Ireland.
