Harrison, Stephen (16 March 2018). "The Wikipedia Page for St. Patrick Is Surprisingly Good: Here's why". Slate. As Adrianne LaFrance noted in the Atlantic, there is no self-evident unifying theory about why certain Wikipedia pages are higher quality than others. But with its combination of primary sources, motivated contributors, and shared vision, St. Patrick’s entry could be hinting at the magic formula. (details)

I thought that this is a common myth - that he is only the "unofficial" Patron Saint, and sources list only Brigit and Columba as "official" Irish saints? Can we get a citation for his patronage, or at least  on the page??? :)

Please change "though identified in one tradition as Glannoventa, modern Ravenglass in Cumbria, in what is now England; claims have been advanced for locations in both present-day Scotland and Wales" to "which has been speculated to be in Wales, Scotland or even England."
Reason- 2 sources: 1 broken link as source + 1 weak source. There are many other more credible sources naming Scotland or Wales as the birthplace. Giving more credance to Saint Patrick being born in England than the other places is deceptive, as his birthplace is unknown, but more generally accepted to be Scotland or Wales (which is discussed in previous sources used in the article). 2A02:C7D:6449:FB00:5091:E279:9CBE:F57C (talk) 17:28, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

On the section of Patrick banishes all snakes from Ireland, I think it we be relevant to talk of the similarities of this story with that of another Irish story on Goídel Glas.For instance if it was added:
Similarities in this story and another Irish myth are notable. The story of Goídel Glas, who is credited as the eponymous ancestor of the Gaels and creator of the Goidelic languages (Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Manx),appears in the 11th century pseudo-historical book Lebor Gabála Érenn (The Book of the Taking of Ireland),  In the story Goídel Glas is bitten by a snake and his life is saved by Moses placing his staff on the snakebite. As a reminder of the incident he retains a green mark that would stay with him for the rest of his life. Additionally Moses tells him that no other of his people will be bitten by a snake and he would lead his people to a land that would be free of snakes. They eventually find Ireland after forty days wandering the sea
If this was added after the line "Aaron's snake-staff prevails by consuming the other snakes" and before the next paragraph starting with the line "However, all evidence suggests that post-glacial Ireland never had snakes" i think this will give a more detail to people on the past authors of these stories fascination of merging Irish history and culture with that of the bible.
