Apparently St. Pat was born in a welsh speaking part of scotland oddly
Some info here about him
St Patricks own words say he was born in the region of Carlisle, which could be the same area of Southern Scotland.
As for welsh speaking, well the welsh language itself didn't start to change from Roman-british brythionic into Welsh until sometime around the 8th or 9th century, so I suspect there is some welsh historical revisionism here.
Almost everyone in Brittania in the 4th century would have spoken either Latin, a Brythionic language or both, so it is somewhat of a stretch to claim that he is Welsh.
As stated above, everyone has some ancient British genes in them, to the point were 80% of the population is the same stock as even before the Romans came. The only reason that the "english" speak one language and Welsh speak another is down to the fact that Anglo-Saxon culture didn't spread that far when they invaded, so the Welsh and Cornish kept their distinct Romano-British culture whereas the area's that fell to the Anglo-Saxons developed the "English" culture. We are the same people at the end of the day.
