A long time ago there lived a priest in Ireland. His name was Patrick.


In Ireland there lived many snakes, too. People were afraid of snakes.


Patrick wanted to help. How could they get rid of the snakes?


He took a drum and played it loudly ¨C and all the snakes slid away. Patrick walked all over the island, until the last snake was gone.


The people were very happy. They called Patrick a saint. Today you can't find any snakes in Ireland.
