Generally speaking, it's thought that Patrick came from somewhere around the Carlisle area (though this has never been definitively proven).  He most definitely was an Romano-Briton, so he could probably speak Old Welsh which isn't too terribly far from the modern variety.  So if you want to raise a glass to him in Welsh, you'll be just fine...
