and people of other nationalities
alike to whom St Patrick has be
come a legend.
As the story goes, St. Pat was
rnrripd awsv bv a band of Irish
marauders at the age of 16. After
six years of bondage, he escapeu,
returned, and drove the snaKes
out of or Ireland.
There is a persistent legend that
ksvr St. Pat missed one snake. In
Lake Dilveen, there was one old
serpent that gave the baint a lot
of trouble. Not having time to
finish him off in one day, Patrick
told him he -would be back to
take care of him on Monday. But
the good Saint forgot to come
back. So, the folks in the neigh
borhood say, the old snake still
waits for the forgotten appoint
ment to be kept.
Every Monday morning he rises
to the surface of Lake Dilveen,
looks around for a while and fin
ally calls out "It's been a long
Monday, Patrick," and then goes
back down lor anotner ween.
