We found some of these wonderful St. Patrick's Day coloring pages in pictures from a glorious old book on Saint Patrick, St. Patrick, Apostle of Ireland (1911).

St. Patrick is famous for his conversion of the Irish and for his description of there being three Persons in one God using the clover. A three leaf clover has three leaflets on one leaf. His description was close enough that they got the idea and we've used it ever since.
Did you know that St. Patrick knew St. Martin of Tours? this book tells of their many years together in a monastery.
The first set of printables below has four pages:
The other two icons link to individual coloring pages. See more throughout this page.

I love this quote from the book St. Patrick, Apostle of Ireland: "In this way God's name and Patrick's were once more magnified." as it explains some of the many marvels that are told in the story.
