The Knights of St. Patrick are knights of the Order of St. Patrick – a spiritual order in honor of the patron saint of Ireland. It is not to be confused with the Order of St Patrick was founded in 1783, to reward those in high office in Ireland and Irish peers on whose support the government.
Saint Patrick (386 – 493) was a missionary and is regarded as the patron saint of Ireland (along with Saint Brigid and Saint Columba). He is also the patron saint of excluded people, engineers, and Nigeria, which was evangelized primarily by Irish missionaries, especially priests from Saint Patrick’s Missionary Society (also known as the Kiltegan Missionaries).
He was born somewhere along the west coast of Great Britain in the little settlement or village of Bannavem of Taburnia, which has never been identified with certainty. Sites suggested include Dumbarton, Furness and Somerset, or the coastline of Wales or northern France; another possibility put forward for his birthplace is the settlement of Bannaventa in Northamptonshire, for raiders captured him with “many thousands of people” according to Patrick’s autobiographical Confessio, and sold them as slaves in Ireland. The tiny Welsh village of Banwen has often been suggested as his birth place. It was clearly occupied in Roman times, sitting on the Neath-Brecon Roman road and next to the two Roman forts in Coelbren. His given name was Maewyn Succat.
