The most recognised and popular saint in Ireland is Saint Patrick. He is most famous for chasing snakes out of this country. According to scientists, this is completely impossible, as there were and could have been no snakes in this part of the world during the lifetime of Bishop Patrick. Nor do they exist today. Since legends stimulate our imagination, we are going to think of what such snakes might have looked like. What colours and shapes did they have, and maybe some unique features worth immortalising in our graphic and artistic ideas.
