Top o' the mornin'

Patrick, having been sold into Irish slavery from Wales, returned to Ireland after his escape to convert the Celtic Irish into Christianity. In his conversion of the Irish, the shamrock was used by welsh missionary Patrick, to explain the Trinity, the three leafs representing the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

I didn’t know this… But then again, I’m neither Welsh nor Irish, or particularly catholic. Though churches are at the top of the agenda at the moment due to my 2 year olds fascination with castles and hence towers, which a lot of churches have.
