As I've learned, "snakes" was a euphamism for eradicating the very human Druids of the old religion of Ireland. St. Patrick is venerated for bringing Catholicism to Ireland the way it was brought to others, through violence and coercion. Other than Catholics, it's pretty much only recognized by Americans as another excuse to drink.
