    This looks like fun. (second bloody attempt)

    I’ve always thought of St Patrick as a murderer (of Druids). The history we have points to Patrick “dismissing” the Druids. Now stop and think. This is at a time in history when Christianity was going great guns and getting converts by hook and dagger. Now the high king has been converted and so have his subjects. The bards (thank the gods for spell check. That started out, barfs) seem to have been subjects of a king or royal or warlord. The Druids were not and considered a threat for the old religions hold on the countryside. We don’t hear much about Druids after Patrick. Yes little children, there were probably murders.

    Peace and Harmony,
