    Just because a saint has the same background as you doesn't mean you should pick him. Picking a saint should be about being inspired of what they have done not because they have the same background as you

    ALthough Saint Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland that does not make him Irish he was actually born in Scotland which would make him Scottish.

    With regards to "Patrick dying at Saul"

    Local tradition has it that Patrick died at Raholp which is about 1/2mile down the road from Saul and where, to this day, the remains of what is believed to be the oldest Church in Ireland, St. Tassach's Church, are to be found.

    St. Tassach, Patrick's first convert, gave Patrick the Last Rites, according to tradition.

    NB. "Tassach" is also "Tassac" depending on whether one uses New Irish Gaelic or Old Irish Gaelic.

    NB. Raholp is also believed, through tradition, to be the place on Strangford Lough where St. Patrick first arrived to convert the Irish, walking up the now known "Myra Road" to where St. Tassach’s Church ruins now stand on St. Patrick's Road.
