    Interesting. Really depends on whose story is being paraded
    That of
    Celtic Christianity
    Roman Catholicism
    The Irish protestant experience rooted in the pilgrim fathers
    The Irish Nation
    The Irish experience
    Or ST Patrick himself

    Connections and disconnections with varying perceptions.
    The disconnect you highlight is not new

    The danger is when one focus and its story is being parade, it is often open to interpretation.

    By the way St Patrick was apparently known to use the shamrock as a lesson in the Trinity.
    My understanding that Skellig enclave was a Celtic Christianity line, whereas Patrick’s father was from the Roman church line. I am sure the family tree have enjoyed discussing the Synod at Whitby.
