St. Patrick was not Irish

He was, in fact, from Wales.

The shamrock was originally a teaching tool

St. Patrick is said to have used the three leaf plant to explain the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) to the pagan Irish.

Wear blue on St. Patrick’s Day

For many years, blue was the color most often associated with St. Patrick. Green was considered unlucky. St. Patrick’s blue was considered symbolic of Ireland for many centuries and the Irish Presidential Standard is still blue.
