It is thought that Patrick's original name was Maelwyn Succat and he was a British Celt possibly born in Wales around 387. Britain was a Roman colony until around 409 AD when the last legions left. That would have made him a Roman citizen.The Celtic Britons had adopted many aspects of Roman culture and were referred to as 'Romanized Britons'. In today's terms he would be a Welshman.

For more detailed information on St. Patrick, you can read his autobiography "Confession" online. See the Related Link below for a direct link to St. Patrick's biography.
No. Patrick was born in Britain of romanized British (Celtic) parentage.
