St Patrick was of Welsh Descent. He was taken as a boy into slavery and transported to Ireland . Later he ran away from his slavery to Rome,became a Priest and went back to Ireland where he felt he could be of great use to the people he got to know. . more

I suppose it's possible, since Britain was under Roman rule, but there's no way of finding out. It wouldn't really be right to say he had Italian ancestry anyway, since there really was no such country as Italy at the time. more

He was Italian because Rome = Italy. He was captured by the Irish/Wales as a kid and then he ended up becoming the patron Saint of Ireland. Thats why the Irish think they have this holiday, but another reason to drink up! more

Apostle of Ireland, born at Kilpatrick, near Dumbarton, in Scotland, in the year 387; died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland, 17 March, 493. [Some sources say 460 or 461. --Ed.] He had for his parents Calphurnius and Conchessa. The former belonged to a Roman family of high rank and held the office of decurio in Gaul or Britain. Conchessa was a near relative of the great patron of Gaul, St. Martin of Tours. Kilpatrick still retains many memorials of Saint Patrick, and frequent pilgrimages continued far into the Middle Ages to perpetuate there the fame of his sanctity and miracles. more
