Saint Patrick was Welsh

Posted by
Many scholars assert, de rigeur, that Saint Patrick (Patricius or Padrig) was born in the still Welsh-speaking Northern Kingdom of Strathclyde of Romano-Brythonic stock around 385 AD at a place called Bannavem Taberniae (Banwen), but the best of them maintain this a "gloss". He was, according to some (admittedly Welsh!) historians, born in Saint David's in Pembrokeshire. At least, that's what my former Celtic Studies professsor taught me! If Mel Duncan wishes to respond (an authority, you understand) we will post it here tomorrow, on Saint Patrick's day.
