    It's true, no snakes occur in Ireland naturally. There are snakes imported as pets, however.

    Yes, it is true. By legend, St Patrick is reputed to have driven them all into the Irish Sea. More likely, whilst 3 species are found in GB, one of them venomous, they reached GB before the sea level rose, cutting off GB from mainland Europe, they did not get over far enough to spread to Ireland before rising seas separated the two islands [GB and Ireland].

    Yes it is true.

    Legend has it that St Patrick expelled them all - but that is accepted as just old folklore.
