Listen to the audio and match the pictures with the corresponding descriptions. Then, reorder St Patrick’s story.
St Patrick's legend
  • There were many snakes in Ireland and the Irish people were scared of them.
  • 1
  • So, he took a drum and played it loudly and all the snakes slid away! Then, he decided to walk all over the island until the last snake was gone!

  • The Irish people were so happy that they called Patrick a “saint”. Today, you can’t find any snakes in Ireland.

Match St Patrick’s attributes with the right justification.
  • Since snakes often represent evil in literature, when Patrick drove them out of Ireland, he symbolically drove the pagan beliefs out of Ireland.
  • St Patrick taught the Irish about the Holy Trinity by using a three-leafed plant to illustrate “three persons in one God”.
  • St Patrick associated the Christian symbol of the cross with the sun to reassure pagan followers who believed in the powers of the sun.
  • St Patrick would use a bell to call his followers to prayer, to prove a point during ceremonies and to accomplish miracles.

Read the poem again and list the objects that symbolize Ireland.
Enjoy te craic!

St. Patrick's Day is with us,
The day when all that's seen
To right and left and everywhere
Is green, green, green!
And Irish tunes they whistle
And Irish songs they sing,
To-day each Irish lad walks out
As proud as any king.
I'll wear a four-leaf shamrock
In my coat, the glad day through,
For my father and mother are Irish
And I am Irish too!

I'll wear a Shamrock, Mary Carolyn Davies.
