Did "Saint Patrick" Place Military Siege Upon Tara and then Burn it to the Ground?

Anyone one who has followed my work over the years is well aware that I have no love for Saint Patrick and what he represented. He almost is certainly a work of pure fiction and may be a cover story for a military crusade. The 'simple shepherd boy' whom we are told, converted Ireland to the Middle Eastern death cult of Christianity while 'banishing the snakes' and other nonsense. Firstly, he wasn't Irish, he was a Romano Briton who was sent to Ireland by the Roman Church - as a kind of Dark Ages Henry Kissenger - to bring the Irish into the Roman legal and taxation system. Saint Patrick's dislike of the Irish should be enough to make any person of Irish heritage despise this Roman Agent and all he represented.  

He came to demolish the Irish and our culture, laws and heathenism, in much the same way Charlemagne demolished the Saxons, and tried to demolish the Norse. Despite Saint Patrick's proclamation that he was a 'simple country person' in his own biography, his family were in fact, well-to-do Romano Briton clergy, and being at the centre of their community, Patrick is actually 'Patrician'. A little known fact is that Saint Patrick's destruction of the 'pagans' ("snakes" to every drunk on March 17th) in Ireland, is so highly regarded, that among the Eastern Orthodox Church he is considered the equal of the Twelve Apostles in terms of his accomplishments in spreading the Middle Eastern death cult. 

Perhaps Saint Patrick's reputation around the Roman Empire was due specifically to his spectacular success this 'humble country lad' performed at Tara when he somehow managed to battle with the druids and capture the fortification during the Celtic feast of Beltaine. During the festival a symbolic fire  - representing the purity of the sun god Lugh - would be ignited by the pagan High King on the top of the Hill of Tara, and this fire would then be used to light all other fires in order to banish the dark days of winter. Keep in mind, that Tara was hardly a collection of a few mud huts with a small population gathered around a roasting pig on a spit. Tara at the time was essentially a capital city, with all the complexities and security one would associate with any central administrative power overseeing an island of 32,000 square miles (and also extended into large regions of western Scotland), along with its overseas, trade and maritime interests. Yet we are told a simple sheep herder single-handedly put it out of business one evening.

In typical Christian traditional disregard for other religious customs, Saint Patrick attacked Tara on the sacred festival of Beltaine. Which would be akin to attacking Washington DC on the 4th of July, or the Vatican on Christmas Day, by "lighting a fire" to terrorise the High King Laoghaire and his druids.

From this point on let's forgo the 'sainted allegory' of the events and offer more practical theories: 

Until this point, Saint Patrick was seemingly travelling around Ireland with a substantial quantity of Roman money in his possession, bribing rival kings of Laoghaire to convert to Christianity. Obviously the 'simply county boy' from Romano Britain had some serious financial and armed resources within his travelling mission in order to perform these eh 'miracles'. In his letters to the Pope, saint Patrick writes: 

"At times I gave gifts to kings, over and above what I paid to their sons who travelled with me." 

"How has this happened in Ireland? Never before did they know of God except to serve idols and unclean things. But now, they have become the people of the Lord, and are called children of God. The sons and daughters of the leaders of the Irish are seen to be monks and virgins of Christ!" 

Clearly these are bribes to local chieftains for military assistance. However, later on some of these 'converts' appeared to have uncovered Patrick's imperialist aims and left his camp with the money. Even so, by the time Patrick and his Irish mercenariness and traitors arrived at Tara, it must have been a substantial enough force to be able to set fire to the sacred city of the druids. We are then told druid elders were sent by King Laoghaire to investigate (delegation) and they reported back that Patrick's fire had magical powers because it would burn forever (unlimited Roman resources). Clearly Tara was under a large scale military siege by a substantial and well resourced military force under the command of Patrick and eventually King Laoghaire declared that Patrick's 'magic' was stronger than his own (capitulation to overwhelming military opposition in other words).  

In a more prosaic context, Patrick's 'magic' was the same thing as American 'freedom' today when exported to unwilling peoples, i.e; war and money. Money to bribe the local psychopaths and opportunists, and war in case not enough of them take the bribes. The same Roman system which the West has been under for 2,000 years. 

I have absolutely no doubt that Saint Patrick (or whatever his brand name actually represented) was responsible for not only the mass murder of the druids (snakes) at Lough Erne and at Tara, but may well have overseen the mass slaughter of many Irish 'unclean' pagans before his mission was complete, as he held aloft the icon of the rotting corpse of a Hebrew from the Middle East nailed to a stick as their new 'faith'.

This information needs to get out amongst the sleepy youth, we're being sold a pup with the Sky News version of Irish history we're given in school and college. It's not hard to see that the church have their hands all over this, suppressing information is one of their calling cards. I know through an archaeologist friend that there is a mountain of our ancient artifacts and those of other cultures in the Vatican vaults. They have the benevolent St Patrick archetype so burned into the brains of the Paddys that when you try to highlight the gaping holes in his biography they give that knee- jerk reaction that brainwashed people often do. We need to know our true past to be strong and protected from the phony world around us.

The Seanchai's shared the truth re Patrick/Patriarch and his love of burning children to force parents to convert to the Roman death cult.
That fear lies in our collective still.
His story in Irish schools is loadd with untruths.
Th terror did not stop at TaRa either.

The famine story is also laced with untruths as Mayo seanchai's explain.

There was abundance of food apart from potatoes, but this was taken at gunpoint to feed the industrial cities of UK.

But let us not forget the hidden hand of the Jesuits in all these actions.

So long as we can still get pissed out of our heads on "Paddy's Day", who really gives a shit about ancient history long since dead. NO ONE CARES!

Very interesting. History is written by the victors after all. A huge stretch to believe that the Celtic culture could be wiped out or diluted to such an extent without extensive violence.

You have to first of all find some convincing evidence that 'Patrick' existed in the flesh.
I don't believe he did.
No writers record his existence except his dedicated hagiographers who invented him in the 7th century. Up until then no one mentioned him.
I think his legend is an allegory for the destruction of the ancient Irish society by modernising forces controlled by the Romans. Better to blame one man than an invading force.
