So, Just Who is This St. Patrick Guy?

Ok, we will all be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend as well as on Thursday, March 17, the actual St. Patrick’s Day. Some will celebrate St. Patrick’s weekend in Quincy’s parade Saturday, some in The District’s Pub Crawl Saturday night, and some in the Kelly’s Fun  Run for the Quincy YWCA on Sunday morning in Quincy. But who was this St. Patrick?  Despite being somewhat of a celebrity Saint, St. Patrick really isn't that well known.
