Animated Story of Saint Patrick

Awesome Stories

The legends of St. Patrick’s day go beyond “wearing of the green”. Before all the celebrations, and stories about shamrocks, a real person lived and died in Ireland. Who was St. Patrick?

This animated story of Saint Patrick relates how important the patron saint of Ireland is to the Irish people.  It is based on input from Irish school children.

The clip – which features the voices of school children attending the Rutland Street Primary School (in North Dublin) in the 1960s – is from “Give Up Yer Aul Sins.”  How (and why) the tapes were made – and then resurfaced decades later – is a story all by itself.  Even more improbable is how the recordings were used as source material for this animation which was created by Dublin-based Brown Bag Films in 2002.
