Of course he is. Haven't you read the fact in Hamilton's history of
Presbyterianism in Ireland published 1887.
Seriously though why do you draw the inference from rain in Ireland to
St Pats being either Scottish or a Presbyterian.
Personally I think that he was Cornish, but I've said this on the list
before to deadly silence
