Myths and Miracles of St. Patrick

The Miracles of St. Patrick—How He Really Converted Ireland to Christianity

"When Christianity came to Ireland, it did not so much supplant the culture  that the Druidic society had developed, but rather borrowed from and baptized those characteristics that were compatible with Christianity, especially making use of its advanced code of laws and its collaborative view of the roles and leadership of women."
(Bridget Mary Meehan, Praying with Celtic Holy Women, xi)
