Fr Pat Collins who focuses much of his study on the theory and practice of evangelisation talks now to Jo Smith about the evangelisation story of St Patrick. His attitude to the Irish, his own background of paganism and the story of his own conversion provide some surprises to the story us Irish feel we know very well indeed.
