March is known for green clover’s, the Luck of the Irish, and celebrating Saint Patrick’s lifelong contributions to Ireland. It was no wonder that Family Tree Magazine would have a special on their Kit of the Month- Irish Ancestry. While we enjoy all the fun festive parties, old traditions, wearing green, and green beer. So many are unaware of  how Saint Patrick ties into Irish History and St. Patty’s Day. He was born in Wales, England, was kidnapped and brought to Ireland to be a slave. He spent 6 years in Ireland as a slave before he escaped and returned to Wales. Later in Life he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop for the Roman Catholic Chruch. There are many legends of Patrick, such as chasing all the snakes out of Ireland. However he is best known for his dedicated work to help the poor and the date of his death- March 17.

As a young girl my Uncle had joined the Little Brothers of Good Shepard. The Founder Brother Mathias Barrett had traveled from Ireland as a young man, joined the Catholic Church, helped so many and was born on March 17, 1900. While my Uncle was study When I received my First Holy Communion, he gave up his seat so that I wouldn’t have to kneel the entire ceremony. Later that day, he gave my family a photograph of him before he had left Ireland. The stories were so fascinating to me. We had family ancestors who had migrated from Ireland in the late 19th Century and the way he shared memories of his life made me feel closer to my ancestors.
