Saint Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the "Apostle of Ireland", he is the primary patron saint of Ireland, along with saints Brigit of Kildare and Columba. He is also venerated in the Anglican Communion, the Old Catholic Church and in the Eastern Orthodox Church as equal-to-apostles and the Enlightener of Ireland. The dates of Patrick's life cannot be fixed with certainty but, on a widespread interpretation, he was active as a missionary in Ireland during the second half of the fifth century. Early medieval tradition credits him with being the first bishop of Armagh, Primate of Ireland. Despite a lack of detail, and many legendary accretions to his story, early sources concur in regarding him as the founder of Christianity in Ireland, making a start at converting a society practising a form of Celtic polytheism, and he has been generally so regarded ever since, despite evidence of some earlier Christian presence in Ireland.
