how true; Patrick's (Sucat's) genuine written works were later
Bowdlerised to make him more acceptable to the Church of Rome and this is
where the myth of a very long stay on the Continent (he was only at Tours
for 6 years) and visits to Rome grew from. He was almost certainly born at
Ailclyde (now Dumbarton) in Scotland.
Regards, another David.

a Celtic priest who didn't pay obeisance to Rome at any time.
