in 1213 AUC, a Brittanian slave attempting to escape to Eire was put to the death.

in 460, Patrick, a wealthy British Christian who had single-handedly converted the whole of Ireland to Christianity, died in his adopted homeland.

in 460, the Speaker’s Line lost several of their Irish family as they converted to Christianity.
