    Welsh in modern terms, but in that era appropriate to refer to as British.

    ...apparently, true...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick

    Saint Patrick
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search

    Saint PatrickSaint Patrick (386–March 17, 493 AD, see below) 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 Nigeria (which was evangelized primarily by Irish missionaries, especially priests from Saint Patrick's Missionary Society, also known as the Kiltegan Missionaries), excluded people, and engineers.

    He was born somewhere along the west coast of Britain in the little settlement or village of Bannavem of Taburnia (vico banavem taburniae in his Confessio), which has never been identified with certainty. Sites suggested include Dumbarton, Furness [1] 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.
    Would you like a dream with that?

    Actually he was Roman by citizenship, the son of an administrator in the Welsh territory.
