Evidence please of St. Patrick "burning the books of the
druids".

PLEASE, just one reputable source!

Now isn't that astonishing!

Julius Caesar invaded Britain in 50 something B.C. with
little success and Claudius invaded with more success in 40
something A.D.!
Ergo Britain (most of it) was part of the Roman empire for
some centuries thereafter!

Ireland was not part of the Roman Empire; and you cannot
extrapolate relations between the Roman colony of Britain
and the non-Roman colony of Ireland.

You are a poor deluded fellow. You seem to spend your life
generating this rubbish, yet you do not have the critical
faculties to tell what is rubbish from what is genuine
scholarship.
