IT must be very nearly twenty years, since the late eminent 
scholar, Eugene Gurry, gave me some tracings or fac-similes 
which had been procured from Irish MSS. preserved in the Bur- 
gundian Library, at Brussels. These suggested the hope that 
some of the valuable documents collected by Colgan and his asso 
ciates, which, before that time, had been regarded as lost, might 
be found among the Brussels MSS. ; and this hope was soon after 
wards converted into certainty by Mr. Bindon, who directed my 
attention to the Catalogue of those MSS., published by the 
Belgian Government, and drew up from that work a complete 
account of all the MSS. in the Irish, Latin, French, and English 
languages, which had any reference to Irish history, in the Bur- 
gundian Library. 

This paper I had the honour of communicating to the Royal 
Irish Academy, in Mr. Bindon s name, at their general meeting, 
on the 24th of May, 1847, and it is printed in the "Proceedings" 1 
of that body. 

1 Proceedings. Vol. III., p. 477, sq. Since this paragraph was written, I see from Mr. 
Curry s Lectures, that Mr. Waldron was the first to draw attention to the Brussels MSS. 
Mr. Curry says : " To my excellent friend, Mr. Laurence Waldron, M.P., of Ballybrack, in 
the County of Dublin, is due the first discovery of the important collection of Irish MSS. at 
Brussels, about the year 1844. He was the first that examined (at my request) the Bur- 
gundian Library ; and he brought me home tracings and descriptions of great accuracy and 
of deep interest. These tracings I placed in the hands of Dr. Todd, with a request that 
he would take an opportunity to make a more minute examination of the MSS. Mr. 
Samuel Bindon, however, having heard of their existence, and having occasion to 
spend some time at Brussels in the year 1846, made an examination of them, and after 
wards compiled a short catalogue of them, which he published on his return home, and 
which was read by the Rev. Dr. Todd before a meeting of the Royal Irish Academy on 
the 10th [read 24th] of May, 1847." Lectures on the MS. Materials of Irish History, p. 174, 


In the summer of the following year I visited Brussels for the 
purpose of inspecting these MSS. ; and having ascertained that 
the regulations of the Library did not prohibit their being lent, I 
applied to the Earl of Clarendon, then Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, 
and through the kind interest of that nobleman with Her Ma 
jesty s Government, I was fortunate enough to procure a loan of 
several MSS. of the greatest importance to the historical studies 
in which I was then and am still engaged. 

The Belgian Government having most liberally granted me 
permission to have the MSS. transcribed, I placed them in the 
hands of my ever-to-be-lamented friend, Mr. Curry, 1 and thus 
became the possessor of copies of them, executed with the skill 
and beauty of his unequalled penmanship. These copies I col 
lated myself with the originals, whilst the Brussels MSS. were 
still in my possession. 

One of these, described in the Catalogue or "Inventaire" of the 
MSS. as Vol. XVI., 5095, 5096, was the autograph MS. of the 
"Martyrology of Donegal," by Brother Michael O Clery, of the 
Order of Friars Minor of Strict Observance, prepared for the press 
by the author, with the attestations and approbations of his 
ecclesiastical superiors. It is now for the first time printed ; 
and whilst passing through the press, has been carefully collated 
throughout with the copy made for me by Mr. Curry, as it was 
not now possible to compare it with the original. 

Mr. Curry s MS. 2 was transcribed for the printers by Dr. Keeves, 
and translated by the late Dr. John O Donovan. This translation 

1 Mr. Curry. When signing his name in the Irish language, this distinguished Celtic 
scholar always wrote "Eugene O Curry," Co^an OC6mficnt>e ; but it was only in the 
title-page of his last work that he subscribed himself "O Curry" in English. I havr 
here called him Curry, as it was under that form of the name his reputation was acquired. 

2 Mr. Curry s MS. This beautiful copy of the " Martyrology of Donegal " was finished 
for me by Mr. Curry in 1851. I afterwards lent it to Dr. Reeves, who made a copy of it 
for his own use, in a style of Irish calligraphy almost rivalling that of Mr. Curry; and 
from this he made another transcript for the use of the printers, which was placed in Dr. 
O Donovan s hands for translation, and is now put forth in type. 


was the last literary work of that distinguished scholar, whose 
death, followed, as it was so shortly after, by that of his colleague, 
Mr. Curry, has given a serious check, it is to be feared, to the 
further progress of Irish historical learning for some time to come. 

The " Martyrology of Donegal" is so called because it was 
" begun and finished," as the colophon 1 at the end of the work 
tells us, in the Franciscan Convent of Donegal, on the 19th of 
April, 1630. 

Michael O Clery, the compiler of this work, was the chief of the 
celebrated antiquaries known by the name of " The Four Mas 
ters." He was a lay brother of the convent of the Order of St. 
Francis of Strict Observance in Donegal ; and was called Michael 
in religion, although his original baptismal name was " Tadhg-ant- 
sleibhe," or Teige of the Mountain. 

A full account of his family, genealogy, and history, has been 
given by Dr. O Donovan in the " Introductory Remarks" prefixed 
to the "Annals of the Four Masters," to which it must suffice 
on the present occasion to refer the reader. But Dr. O Donovan 
in 1848, when he printed the first edition 2 of his Introductory 
Remarks, makes no mention of the " Martyrology of Donegal," in 
his account of O Clery s writings. He was probably not aware, at 
that time, that Michael O Clery was the chief author of this com 
pilation, or that the work was still in existence. In 1851, when a 
new edition of the Introductory Remarks, intended to supersede the 
former, appeared, it is curious that Dr. O Donovan made the same 
omission. This was no doubt an oversight ; but it is probable that he 
may have prepared his second edition of the Introductory Remarks 
before he was aware of the recovery of the autograph MS. of the 

1 Colophon. See page 479. 

2 First edition. Dr. O Donovan in 1848 published, in three vols. 4to., that portion of 
the Chronicle by the Four Masters which had not been included in the Rerum Hibernicarum 
Scriptores of Dr. O Conor ; and prefixed to this publication was the first edition of his 
Introductory Remarks. In 1851, two other volumes, containing the earlier portion of the 
Annals, from A.M. 2242 to A.D. 1171, were published with a new and corrected edition of the 
Introductory Remarks, 


Martyrology of Donegal. The omission is the more inexplicable, 
because O Clery, in his Irish Epistle, prefixed to the Annals of 
the Four Masters, mentions the work, and states that he had 
been ten years engaged in the compilation of it. 

There is a second, but shorter copy of the " Martyrology of 
Donegal," also an autograph of Michael O Clery, in the Brussels 
Library 1 (vol. xiv., 4639). This was probably the first fair copy 
of the work. It was written at Douay in 1 629, a year before the 
more complete transcript (now printed), which was finished in 
the Convent of Donegal in 1630. It is very much to be regretted 
that time did not permit me to get this copy also transcribed, for 
it contains a preface omitted in the later MS., and would in all 
probability have enabled me to correct some mistakes, or clear up 
some obscurities, in the present edition. 

On a fly-leaf, at the beginning of the shorter copy, is the fol 
lowing title : 


Sanctorum Hibernise 

Collegit et digessit 

Michael O Clery 

Ord. S. Francisci 


in Flandria Galliae 

The other more complete copy has neither preface nor title. But 
on one of the blank leaves at the beginning of the volume, in a 

large Italian hand, which is not that of the author, are the words 

Dung aliens e. 

It is evident, however, that this is the proper title of the work. 
It has been frequently quoted by Colgan 2 under that name ; and 

1 Library. See Proceedings R. Irish Acad. vol. iii. p. 486. 

2 Colyan. The following is the account of this work which has been given by Colgan : 
" Martyrologium, quod Dungallense vocamus, nostris diebus ex diversis tuin Martyr- 
ologiis, turn annalibua patriis collectum est, partim opera authorum qui Annales com- 


under that name it is now printed. Its publication will preserve 
and render accessible to all scholars one of the long-lost authorities 
of Irish church history. 

Nevertheless it must be admitted that this work cannot properly 
be regarded as an original authority. It is confessedly a compila 
tion, and of comparatively recent date, having been completed, as 
we have seen, in the early part of the seventeenth century. But 
it is a compilation made by a scholar peculiarly well qualified for 
the task : who had access to all the original authorities then extant 
in the Irish language, the matter of which he has transferred either 
in whole or in part into the present work, quoting in almost every 
instance the sources from which he drew his information. 

Some account of these sources may not be unacceptable to the 
reader, especially as they are almost all accessible, and, with few 
exceptions, still exist in our MS. collections. 

I. The first in date as well as in importance is the METRICAL 
called the FELIRE 1 of Aengus. Its author was a monk, first of 
Cluain-eidnech, and then of Tamhlacht, now Tallaght, near Dublin, 
which latter monastery was then under the government of St. 
Maolruain, 2 its bishop and abbot. The martyrology of Aengus 3 
must be referred to the beginning of the ninth century, for its 
author flourished in the reign of Aedh Oirnidhe, king of Ireland, 
who died A.D. 819 or 820. 

The " Felire" does not confine itself to Irish saints or Irish 
festivals exclusively. Four lines, in rhyme, are devoted to each 
day of the year, and the author has imposed upon himself the task 

munes, de quibus infra, compilarunt in Conuentu Dungallensi ; partim opera Patrum 
ejusdem Conuentus qui sanctos, qui extra patriam vixerunt, et de quibus hystorici exteri 
scripserunt, addiderant. Vnde cum opus opera diversorum in eodem loco collaborantium 
sit compilatum, duxi illud a, loci potius unitate, quam ab authorum multiplicitate denomi 
nate." Colgan, Acta Sanctorum Hibernice, torn. i. p. 5 a. 

1 Felire. This word signifies Festilogium, Festivak, or list of Feasts and Festivals, 

2 S. Maolruain. See 7 July, p. 189. 

8 Aengus. See note on his name, p. 359. Colgan has collected all that is known of 
him, Act. SS. (11 Mart.), p. 579. 


of introducing into those four lines the names of the saints com 
memorated 011 that day. The copy of this work preserved in the 
Leabhar Breac in the library of the Royal Irish Acadeni}^, and a 
still more perfect copy in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, 1 are accom 
panied by a copious interlinear gloss and scholia, containing some 
very curious legends and traditions, which throw great light on 
the ancient state of religion and of society in Ireland down to the 
eleventh century. There is another copy, with less copious gloss 
and scholia, preserved in the library of St. Isidore s convent, Rome. 
It is a MS. of the fifteenth century. A more recent hand on the 
back of the parchment cover attributes the Scholia to Cathal (or 
Charles) Maguire 2 , Canon of Armagh, and Dean of Clogher, who 
died 1470. From this MS. was evidently taken the Brussels copy, 
of which I have a transcript, made for me by Mr. Curry in 1851. 

The Scholia are repeatedly cited by Colgan under the title of 
Aengusius auctus, and are attributed by him to Cathal Maguire, 
in accordance with the endorsement on the copy at St. Isidore s, 
which was formerly in his possession. 

tained in the Book of Leinster, a MS. of the twelfth century, 
preserved in the Library of Trinity College, Dublin, but has long 
disappeared from that volume, which is now very imperfect. 

During my visit to Rome in 1 862, I found eleven of the missing 
leaves of this precious manuscript (which I recognised at once) 
among the documents kindly shown me by the superior of St. Isi 
dore s convent. These leaves contain some of the curious Tracts attri 
buted to Aengus Ceile De, together with the copy of the Calendar 
or Martyrology of Tallaght referred to by Colgan, which, however, 

1 Oxford. This is in the volume which contains all that we now know to be extant of 
the lost Psalter of Cartel, and is marked Laud., 610. 

2 Charles Maguire. He may have been the transcriber of the MS., but certainly not 
the original compiler ; for the copy in the Leabhar Breac was written at the end of the 
fourteenth century, and the Bodleian copy nearly a hundred years before; so that the 
larger collection existed before Maguire was born. See O 1 Curry s futures, p. 363, gq. 
Colgan, Actt. SS., p. 5. 


is itself also unfortunately imperfect, owing to the loss of a leaf. 
The defect 1 includes the whole of November and the first sixteen 
days of December. This Calendar is a transcript of a very ancient 
Martyrology, containing a list of the saints and martyrs of the 
universal church under each day of the year, the Irish saints being 
added at the end of each day, and separated from the rest by a 
peculiar mark. The Calendar commences on Christmas Day, and 
not, as is more usual, on the kalends of January. At the begin 
ning is this title in rubric : 

Incipit martira oenghusa me oiUean et maolruain ic. [i.e. hie]. 

" Here begins the Martyrology of Oengus Mac Oiblean and 


But this can only mean that the work was compiled from the col 
lections of Aengus and Maolruain, as its basis, for it exhibits 
internal evidence of more recent sources. It mentions Coirpre, 
bishop of Clonmacnois, who died 6 March, 899, but contains no 
notice of Cormac Mac Cuilenain, king and bishop of Cashel, who 
was slain in 909 ; neither is there found in it the name of any 
saint who died after the year 900. It gives the names of Aengus 
and Maolruain themselves, at I] March and 7 July respectively, 
the days on which they were commemorated as saints. Therefore, 
as Colgan remarks, the work must have been composed at the 
close of the ninth or very early in the tenth century. 

From the ancient copy at St. Isidore s in Rome, the Brussels 
MS. was evidently transcribed. But it is only an abstract, con 
taining the Irish saints alone. It takes no notice of the general 

1 Defect. This defect is of old standing. It appears that Colgan had contemplated 
the publication of this work, if a perfect copy of it could have been found. His description 
of this MS. of it, is as follows: " Caeterum Martyrologium ipsum est egregium, et Mar- 
tyrologio Romano, omnique alio quod viderim, longe copiosius. Post alios Sanctos ad 
singulos dies in magno numero recensitos, subjungit semper seorsim Sanctos Hibernian 
Sed cum magna antiquitatis jactura hinc inde in exemplari pervetusto, quod poenes nos 
est, desunt multa, mine plures dies, nunc integri menses ; et hoc est quod luce publica, 
qua alias dignissimum est, retardat aureum opus donari, donee integrum reperiatur." 
Actt. SS., pp. 4, 5. The only real defect of the MS. is that above described. 


Martyrology which forms the great bulk of the work. 1 It has 
omitted also the names of some Irish saints which occur in the 
margin of the MS., although written by the original scribe; and it 
represents as defective some days which are not wanting in the 
original, but on which 2 it happened that no Irish saints were 
given. A transcript of this MS. was made for me by Mr. Curry in 
1850, and from it the Martyrology of Tallaght was published 3 in 
1857, by the late lamented Dr. Matthew Kelly of Maynooth. 

III. THE CALENDAR OF CASHEL is the next in order of anti 
quity, and was doubtless accessible to Michael O Clery, although 
it is not now known to exist. Colgan 4 thus describes it : " The 
author of the Calendar which we call that of Cashel, seems to have 
flourished about the year 1030 ; for he makes no mention of S. 
Malachy, who died in the year 1148, nor of S. Laurence, who died 
in 1158, nor of any of the many other men distinguished for sanc 
tity who flourished after the year 1017. He mentions, however, S. 
Gormgal, 5 abbot of Ard-oilen, who deceased in that year. We prefer 

1 Work. Perhaps a complete transcript was also made, which however, does not now 
exist among the Brussels MSS. It seems to be alluded to under S. Donnan of Eg, and 
his 52 companions (17 Apr.\ "quorum nomina in majore libro scripsimus." (Kelly s edit., 
p. xxi.) Bolland. Actt. SS., April, torn, ii., p. 487. 

2 On which. The confusion existing in the month of September is entirely clue to the 
transcriber of the Brussels MS. The first of the month is marked 4, and this error is con 
tinued, although it might easily have been corrected by observing that the notation of 
the days by calends, nones, and ides is correct. This confusion Dr. Kelly has inadvertently 

8 Published. When in Rome I collated the Irish portion of the work, as published by 
Dr. Kelly, with the original MS., correcting numerous errors and omissions. 

4 Colgan. " Author Calendarii, quod Casselense vocamus, videtur floruissee circa an 
num 1030; non enim meminit S. Malachioe, qui obiit anno 1148; vel S. Laurentii, qui 
anno 1158; vel ullius ex aliis pluribus viris Sanctitate conspicuis, qui post annum 1017 
claruerunt; meminit vero S. Gormgalii abbatis de Ard-oilen, qui eo anno decessit. Hoc 
vero ejus opus malumus Calendarium quam Martyrologium appellare; quod videatur 
potius ad instar Calendarii ad usum Ecclesise vel Dioacesis Casselensis collection, quam ad 
modum Martyrologii compilatum ; cum plurimos ex Hiberniae sanctis sanctitate famosos 
silentio praeterierit. Perpaucos etiam habet nisi commemoratos a S. yEngussio, licet de 
singulis fusius disserat." Actt. SS., p. 5. 

6 S. Gormgal. See Aug. 5, p. 213. 


giving this work the title of Calendar rather than Martyrology, 
because it seems to have been collected like a Calendar, for the 
use of the church or diocese of Cash el, rather than compiled in the 
manner of a Martyrology ; seeing that it has passed over in silence 
very many of the saints of Ireland famous for sanctity. It con 
tains also very few except those commemorated by S. Aengus, 
although it treats of each more diffusely." 

MAIN. This work was composed in the times of Gelasius, arch 
bishop of Armagh, or about A.D. 1167. It is written in Irish verse, 
and was taken, as the prefatory scholium expressly tells us, from 
the Martyrology, or Felire, of Tallaght. Its author was abbot of 
Cnoc-na-napstol [Hill of the Apostles], now Knock, near Louth. 
The saints commemorated are not exclusively Irish. The only copy 
of it known to me is that preserved among the Brussels MSS., of 
which a transcript by Mr. Curry is in my own possession. It 
contains scholia, written in the manner of a gloss, which add con 
siderably to its value as an historical authority. O Clery has 
made great use of this work in the compilation of the Martyrology 
of Donegal. All the names which he gives without a local desig 
nation are from O Gorman, as well as those which have short local 
notices : of these last many, if not all, are taken from the scholia. 
It is probable that the " Old," " Very Antient Vellum Book," so 
frequently referred to in the following pages, was a volume con 
taining this and some other works on Irish Hagiology, from which 
the Brussels MS. was copied. In some places 1 this " antient old 
book" is said to have contained "the Martyrology of Moelruain 
of Tamlacht, and the saints of the same name, 2 and the names of 
the mothers of the saints." It contained also the comparison 3 of 

1 Some places See pp. 35, 45, et passim. 

2 Name. This is a list of saints of the same name, as the Colmans, Finians, Brendans, &c. 
8 Comparison See pp. 23, 27, et passim. This has been published from the Brussels 

MS. in the Book of Hymns, p. 69, and reprinted by Dr. Kelly, Calendar, p. xli. 



the saints of Ireland with those of the universal church, who were 
supposed to have been of the same habits and life. This descrip 
tion seems to identify the Old Vellum Book with the Book of 
Leinster, for all the tracts alluded to are to be found in the leaves 
of that book now at St. Isidore s in Rome. 

" A certain old book 1 of the Books of Erinn," is mentioned (p. 
105), as having contained the names of the fifty-two monks who 
were beheaded along with St. Donnan of Eg. This is unquestion 
ably the Book of Leinster, for the Martyr ology of Tallaght in the 
loose sheets at St. Isidore s contains all the names at length. 

V. THE BOOK OF HYMNS has been once 2 quoted by name. A 
portion of this work having been already published by the Irish 
Archaeological and Celtic Society, it need not be described here. 
Two ancient copies of it are known to exist ; both of them, how 
ever, imperfect : one is in the library of St. Isidore s at Rome ; the 
other in the library of Trinity College, Dublin. This latter copy is 
perhaps the older, as it is certainly the more elegantly written and 
ornamented. It belongs most probably to the end of the eleventh 
century. The copy at Rome is the same which has been quoted 
by Ussher and by Colgan. It has many scholia and several 
hymns which are not in the Dublin MS. During my short 
residence in Rome I was enabled, by the great kindness of the 
superior of St. Isidore s, to collate it throughout, arid to trans 
cribe everything which it contains that could assist in completing 
the edition of the Book of Hymns, of which a second fasciculus is 
in the press. 

VI. POEMS. A great number of poems, celebrating the virtues 
of the saints or recording events in their lives, has been quoted 
by our author. Some of these are anonymous ; of others the 

1 Old Book. The "old books of Erinn" are spoken of generally, p. 123 ; and "a cer 
tain book," p. 1G7. 

~ Once. See p. 21. Place s Hymn is quoted, but without naming the Book of Hymns, 
under Tassuch, p. 103. 


writers have been named. I shall notice here the more remark 
able of the latter class. 

1. The Poem of S. Cuimin of Condeire (Connor) is very 
largely quoted. It describes the peculiar virtues and ascetic prac 
tices of each saint, devoting to each a stanza of four lines. It has 
been printed by the Rev. Matthew Kelly in his Calendar of Irish 
Saints, with a translation by Mr. Curry. St. Cuimin nourished in 
the middle of the seventh century. 

2. The Naoimhseanchus, or poetical history of the saints of 
Ireland, is also very frequently referred to as an authority. 
Colgan 1 attributes the authorship of this poem to Selbach, or, as he 
calls him, Selvacius, and frequently cites it under that author s 
name. Selbach is said to have been secretary to Cormac Mac 
Cuilenain, king and bishop of Cashel, and if so must have flou 
rished early in the tenth century. 

There is a copy of this poem in the Brussels Library, and an 
excellent one in the Book of Lecaii (fol. 58, b. a.) 

3. The poem of St. Moling of Ferns, entitled Borumha; giving 
an account of his mission to Finnachta Fleadach, or the Festive, 
king of Ireland (A.D. 675695), to obtain the remission of the 
Boromean or Cow Tribute. 2 

4. Minor Poems. Under this head it may suffice to mention 
the Cealtair Dichil, composed by St. Diarmaid of Inis-Clothraim 
(p. 1 2) ; the Lorica of Columcille (ib.) ; the poem of Maelisa Ua 
Brolchain on Michael the Archangel (p. 19) ; the poem of Manchari 
of Liath (p. 27) ; a poem of S. Mura (pp. 161, 163) ; a poem of St. 
Ciaran of Clonmacnois (p. 243) ; a poem by Cormac, king of Cashel 
(p. 249) ; and an elegy on the death of Cormac, by Selbach (ib.) ; 

1 Cole/an, Actt. SS., p. 5, n. x. See also O Reilly s Irish Writers, p. Ixi. But this 
poem is attributed to Aengus Ceile De, in the preface to the JReim Rioghraidhe of the 
O Clerys. See O Cmiy s Lectures, p 163, For Selbach, see p. 249, infra, Ware s Writers, 
by Harris, p. (U, who adds, however, nothing to Colgan. 

2 Cow Tribute. See Dr. O Donovan s Fragments of Annalx, p. 79, sq. O Curry s 
Lectures, p. 230, sq . 



the Vision of St. Adamnan, (p. 257) ; a poem by Art, son of Con 
(p. 291); a poem by St. Brendan of Birr (p. 321); and one by St. 
Berchan (p. 327). There are also quoted prophecies by St. Brigid 
(p. 157); St. Columcille (p. 175, 275); and St. larlath (p. 349). 
This may not be a complete enumeration of all the poems quoted 
by our author, but it will serve to show the extensive use he has 
made of this class of native literature. 

VII. Besides these smaller productions O Clery had access to 
several of the great collections, or BIBLIOTHEC.E ; of which he 
expressly names the Book of Lecan (p. 345) ; the Leabhar na 
huidhre (p. 257) ; and the Book of Mac Carthaigh Biabhach, now 
better known under the name of the Book of Lismore (p. 317). 

VIII. He quotes also the LIVES OF SAINTS, many of which are, 
or were in his time, extant in Irish, and several of them in Latin. 
The following is an alphabetical list of the Saints whose Lives are 
referred to by our author :

It is evident, therefore, from the foregoing list of authorities that 
the Martyrology of Donegal, although it cannot be regarded as an 
original authentic source of history, is, nevertheless, of inestimable 
value. It bears the name of Michael O Clery only ; but, from 
Colgan s description 1 of it, it appears to have been the work of 
Michael O Clery, in conjunction with his companions, now well 
known as the joint compilers with him of the Chronicle, called 
the Annals of the Four Masters ; and we may infer from the 
additions in other handwriting, so frequently noticed in the fol 
lowing pages, that the MS. was revised by several hands, and 
probably also by Colgan himself. The work, therefore, possesses 
no small authority, as the compilation of scholars of the greatest 
eminence, who have condensed into its pages the substance of ori 
ginal records, some of them no longer extant, and all requiring 
the highest order of Celtic learning to read and interpret them 
correctly. It is, in fact, a manual of great practical utility, and 
may be considered as a synopsis of the particular branch of histo 
rical literature to which it relates. 

The value of the book, in this point of view, has been greatly 
enhanced by the accurate and copious indexes, at the end of this 
volume, which will enable the student to refer with ease to every 
name as well as to every place mentioned in the Calendar. They 
possess also a topographical and historical interest quite inde 
pendent of their connexion with the present work, and are in 
themselves a most important practical help to the study of Irish 
history. These indexes have been compiled by Dr. Reeves. 

The table or index of the names of saints drawn up by the author 
in Irish, and forming a part of the original MS., has been retained 
(see p. 152), and is printed with a Translation, for which I am re- 

1 Colr/an s description, see p. vi., n. supra. In the Epistle Dedicatory to the Annals of 
the Four Masters, p. Ivi., O Clery does not hesitate to speak of himself as the author. 
" I, Michael O Clerigh, a poor brother of the Order of St. Francis (after having been for 
ten years transcribing every old material that I found concerning the Saints of Ireland, 
&c.) have come before thee, O Ferghal O Ghadhra." 


spoiisible. This index, however, is incomplete, and not in strict 
alphabetical order, the sequence of the consonants frequently 
taking precedence of the vowels. But it contains some curious 
historical facts, not noticed in the text, and mentions some ancient 
wells, relics, and reliquaries no longer known to exist. It gives, 
also, in some instances, the Latinized forms or equivalents of the 
Irish names of saints, which are of considerable value and interest 
to the student of this branch of ecclesiastical history. This Irish 
Index has been itself indexed ; the matter it contains is included 
in the more perfect indexes of Dr. Reeves. 

A number of memoranda, references to authorities, and miscel 
laneous notes, have been written by the author, and others through 
whose hands the MS. has passed, on the fly-leaves at the beginning 
and end of the volume. They do not, indeed, all relate to the 
subject of the work ; but they are, many of them, of great interest, 
and I have collected them, in an Appendix to this Introduction, 
with translations of such as are in Irish, that nothing be lost of 
what had fallen from the pen of Michael O Clery and his associates. 

We have abstained from all topographical or historical notes, 
in order to keep the volume within a convenient bulk. The 
object of the few notes, which will be found in the lower margin, 
has been to explain peculiarities or obscurities in the MS., to settle 
the text, and to correct some obvious mistakes of the author. 
One or two notes added by Dr. O Donovan to his Translation, 
are marked by his initials (O D.) The notes contributed by Dr. 
Reeves are marked (R.), and for the remainder, marked (T.), I 
am myself responsible. 

Should the funds at the disposal of the Society permit, a sup 
plementary volume may be published, containing a short account of 
the Saints commemorated in this Calendar, with references to autho 
rities ; and also a list of the Places mentioned, with their modern 
names, and other Topographical information. But this cannot at 
present be undertaken, although considerable materials for such a 
work liave been collet (<! 


Prefixed to the volume are the Testimonials of two eminent Irish 
scholars, commendatory of the work, followed by the Approbations 
of O Clery s ecclesiastical superiors. These are given (see p. 1.) with 
facsimiles of the signatures ; and it will be observed that the in 
dividuals who have subscribed these documents are the same who 
had given similar approbations, worded in the same forms, to the 
Annals of the Four Masters. 

It remains now only to perform the grateful duty of returning 
thanks, in the name of the Irish Archaeological and Celtic Society, 
to the Provost and Senior Fellows of Trinity College, Dublin, 
who have contributed fifty pounds towards the expense of this 

I must also express my gratitude to the Eev. E. H. J. Reusens, 
D.D., Prof.-Extraord. and Librarian in the University of Louvain, 
who, with great kindness, collated the Appendix to this Introduc 
tion with the original MS. at Brussels, and has thus enabled me 
to correct several mistakes, as well as to supply some defects. 

Mr. W. M. Hennessy has given me much valuable assistance in 
translating and preparing for the press the documents collected in 
the Appendix. I take this opportunity of returning him thanks.

IN this Appendix have been collected together some miscellaneous 
notes and memoranda which are found in the fly-leaves at the 
beginning and end of the original MS. 

The greater part of these are in O Clery s handwriting : but 
some of them, particularly those which are in Latin, are in another 
hand, supposed to be that of John Colgan. We have no longer 
access to the original MS. ; and it has, therefore, been found impos 
sible, with any certainty, to assign these notes to their respective

Ulltan of Ardbreacan composed 
the Hymn 2 beginning "Brigit be 
biothmait," for it was he who made 
the Latin verse which is at the end of 
it, and the Latin poem is also by 
him which is after the life 3 written 
in Latin beginning "Cogitis me Fra- 
tres :" and its style is similar to that 
of the Book of Cill Connigh [Kil 
kenny], but it is not the same ne 

He was the brother of Broicsech, 
daughter of Dallbronach, i.e., they 
were both of the Dal Conchubhair, 
and it was in the time when the two 
sons of Aodh Slaine were kings, who 
died in the year 664, that he com 
posed the Life and the Latin and 
Gaedhlic poems. 

1 In die Epiphanm 8 lect. This refers to Lect. 8 in the Roman Breviary on the Feast 
of the Epiphany, which is taken from S. Gregory, Horn. x. on St. Matthew. The words 
alluded to are, " Quia nhnirum rationis ordo poscebat, ut et loquentem jam Dominum 
loquentes nobis praedicatores innotescerent, &c." (T.)

the above memorandum seems to allude to the Latin verses at the end of the third Life of 
St. Brigit in the Trias Thaumaturga, which Colgan endeavours to show (not. p. 542) 
was written by St. Ulltan. (T.)

Of the last Invasion, 3 from the Book 
of MacCarthaich, i.e., Finghin, 
which Diarmaid Ua Suilleabhain 
wrote in 1633, in London. 
At that time Diarmaid MacMur- 
chadha, king of Leinster, carried 
off 4 stealthily, with the pretence of 
force, Dearbhorguill, daughter of 
Murchadh son of Flann, wife of 
Tighernan O Ruairc, king of Leins 
ter and Meath, according to some of 
the books. 

On hearing this, Tighernan sent 
word to .Ruaidhri, son of Torr- 
dhealbhach, king of Connacht, and 
they proceeded together, with the 
foreigners of Ath Cliath, and the 
Meathmen, and the Hi Faolain, until 
they burnt Ferna m6r of Maodhog, 
with all its churches, and brought 
with them hostages from Mac-Mur-

Another expedition by Kuaitlliri 
Concliobhair,with the same people, 
to Ferna m6r, so that he demolished 
the stone house of MacMurchadha, 
and expelled himself [viz., MacMur 
chadha] beyond sea to the east; he 
visited the king of Saxon-land, in 
France, i.e., King Henry, Duke of 
Normandy, and Aquitaine, and An- 
jou, and Lord of Britain and Alban, 
according to the Book of the Gall. 1 
On the arrival of MacMurchadha the 
kinggavehim welcome, and detained 
him near him for a short time, and 
then let him return to theSaxons with 
letters and with treasure. As it was 
not possible for himself or his army 
to accompany MacMurchadha, he 
gave permission to every one who 
pleased, to go with him to Ireland to 
recover his sovereignty. 

MacMurchadha came toBristol, and 
made a compact with Richard, Earl 
of Stranguil, son of Gilbert, to give 
to the earl Aine, MacMurchadha s 
daughter, and the Province of Lein- 
ster after MacMurchadha s death, in 
consideration of his coming with 
him to Ireland, to recover his power, 
in the ensuing summer. 

MacMurchadha left Bristol, and 
went to the north side of the Britons 
[i.e., Welsh], and came by sea from 
thence to Ferna, where he remained 
hidden during the Spring.

These are the principal knights 
who came then with MacStiamna: 
Muiris Mac Gerailt, Roberta Barra, 
Maoileri Mac Henri, Herbi 6 M6in

of Dunbrot [Dunbrody]. 

They confirmed their agreement, 
and after unfurling their banners, 
proceeded, unitedly, to the attack of 
Loch Garman, and after they had 
captured it, MacMurchadha gave it 
itself, and the county on the east 
side and on the west, to Robert Mac 
Stiamna, and to Muiris Mac Gerailt, 
according to his promise, and went 
thence to Ossory, where he com

from Mac Giollapatrick as token of 
submission to him.

O Ciaran, Comarb of Patrick, with 
the reliquaries of the north of Erinn, 
and with his clergy, to- Dun, 1 to re 
cover it from John 2 ; and when they 
reached it they fled without assault, 
without conflict, and left the Com 
arb of Patrick, with his clergy, 
and the Canon 3 of Patrick, and the 
Finnfaidhech of Patrick, and the 
bell of the Circuit of Armagh, and 
the staff of Comgall, and the Ceolan 
of Tighernach, and the staff of Da- 

1 Dun: i.e., Dun dale thglaiss or Downpatrick. For "Giolla an Coimghe," read "Giolla 
an Coim-dhe," Servant of the Lord, a Christian name not uncommon at that period. 

2 From John: i.e., from John de Courcy. (T.) 

3 The Canon. The Canon of Patrick was the Book of Armagh, containing the New 
Testament and other books. The Finnfaidhech was a bell so called. The word, as Mr. 
Curry thought, signifies "sweet-sounding." O Curry s Lect. p. 337, 631 n. Petrie, Round 
Towers, p. 220. The Bell of the Circuit was probably the bell said to have been rung 
by St. Patrick, and heard throughout the whole of Ireland; Joed. c. 173., Trip. ii. c. G7. 
The Ceolan of Tighernach was also a Bell. The word signifies musical. It is called Ceolan 
an Tigherna (a mistake for Tiyhernach), in the Dublin Ann. of Inisfallen, A.D. 1177. (T.)

death the translation of the most

took place from the Sepulchre of 
the Apostles, both his hands 3 were

The kings of the race of Herimon, 
before Christianity, were 60. After 
Patrick, 46. Of the Momonian race, 
after Christianity, Brian alone, one; 
and Oilill Molt 2 before 28. The 
former held the kingdom for 1805 
years : the latter only for 310 inter 
polated 3 years. Of the race of Ir 
there were 25 kings, for 452 years. 

1 Finn. Alluding probably to one of the prophecies attributed to Finn Mac Cumhaill. 
See O Curry, Lectures, p. 395. The English were not in Ireland in 1127; perhaps we 
should read 1172, and in the last line of the stanza quoted t>ccce<n, two hundred, instead 
of cyxioccrc, thirty. (T.) 

2 Oilill Molt. There is some mistake or omission here. Oilill Molt was of the race of 
Herimon. Perhaps we should read Oilill Finn, who was of the race of Heber; but he 
flourished long before Christianity. The words " ante 28," appear to signify that before 
Christianity there were 28 kings of the race of Heber, or of the Minister families. (T.)

the principal churches and palaces, except Cashel, were built by the Herimonians, and 
that the mo:<t eminent saints were sprung from the same race. (T.)

There are five beds of hard pe 
nance there, round which the pil 
grims go, the Bed of Patrick, of 
Columcille, of Brigid, of Adamnan, 
and of Dabeog. This is the testi 
mony of Fergal. But the b c . nA 
says 1 that he saw but two beds there, 
viz., Patrick s and Ooltmi s. 48 
[hours] without food, without drink. 
9 daj^s there altogether. A pilgrim 
age during the day, and prayers. 
The baking of bread must be with 
out salt. Loch-gerc is its name. 


The Book of Columcille, i.e., the 
Book of Durmhaigh, is in Dur- 
mhaigh itself, in Cinel Fiachach, i.e., 
the country of MacEochagain : writ 
ten in Gaidhelic letters, the New 
Testament, with a binding of silver 
and gems. 2 The house of Colum 
cille is above [i.e., over the oratory], 
in Cenannus, and the station 3 of 
crosses, and his miraculous book 
is there. His way to the church 
used to be underground. Gorm- 
laith, daughter of Flann, is under 
a great cross, and she came to 
meet Brian na mBarrog, to ask for a 
flag to be put over her body. On 
the stone that is in the cemetery 
\is the inscription] " I place this 
stone over thee, Gormlaith."

4 Mobheocc. The Irish used the diminutive of the names of saints as a mark of affection, 
and prefixed TOO, my, as an expression of devotion ; as we still say Our Lord, Our Lady. 
The diminutive was formed by the termination an or in, or by adding the adjective occ 
or og, little. Thus, J5eo, diminutive JBeo-an, or Beo-occ, and prefixing mo, Mobeocc, "my 
Beocc," or "my little Beo." Aodb, diminutive Aodhan, Mo-aodh-an, and Mo-aodh-og, 
11 my little Aodh," shortened into St. Mogue ; Sen, diminutive Senan, or Sen-og, Moshenog, 
u my little Sen;" the saint who gave name to the Prebend of Monmohenoc in St. 
Patrick s Cathedral, Dublin. Obits of Christ Church, p. xlvi. n. Elte, diminutive Eltin,

Whereas the poor Friar Michael O Clery came into my presence (in

son of Cairpre Mac Aedhagain, of Bally Mac Aedhagain, in the county of 
Tioprat Arann 1 , who testify that, although I have seen many books re 
lating to the festivals of the saints, yet I never did see any one book of 
them so full and so eminently 2 clear, bright, intelligible, and in better 
order and plain, and so worthy of praise as the Festivale and Martyrology 
which are in this book ; and to certify this, I put my hand upon it, in Bally 
Mac Aedhagain, 1 November, 1636.

Mac Bruaidedha, Conchobhar, son of Maoilin 6g, 1 of Cill-Chaoide \Kilkecdy\ 
and Leitir Maolain \_Lettermoylan], in the county of Clare, who testify that 
I have seen many books relating to the festivals of the Irish saints, but 
never did see any one book of them so full, eminently clear, and arranged 
in better order, and so worthy of praise, as the Festivale and Martyrology 2 
which are in this book ; and to attest this, I put my hand upon it in Cill 
Chaoide, 11 November, 1636. 

CONNER M BRODY, who was inaugurated 3 

^Maoilin og : i.e., Maoilin, junior, who died 31 Dec., 1602, according to the Four 
Masters. He was succeeded as " Mac Bruaidedha," or head of his race, by his son Con 
chobhar, or Conner, the writer of the above Testimonium. The family name was angliced 
Mac Brody, and also Bruodin. They were hereditary historians and bards of the O Briens 
of Tnchiquin for many generations. (T.)

2 Martyrology. The MS. reads here peiti|\e 7 m m mccficccp.laicc, but m m seems to 
be a mistake of transcription. (T.) 

3 Inaugurated. In Dr. O Donovan s translation of the Testimonium given by Conner 
Mac Brody to the Annals of the Four Masters, the words T>a n^oificeyi, in the signature, 
are rightly translated "called." But the meaning is "proclaimed" or "inaugurated," 
i.e., officially declared to be the Mac Bruaidedha. See the extract from Keating s account 
of the inauguration of Irish chieftains given by Dr. O Donovan, Hy Fiachrach, p. 431 sq. 




Yisis testimoniis et approbationibus eorum qui praacipui 
sunt antiquarii reruni nostrarum et linguae ac historic 
peritissimi et expertissimi, de fide et integritate fratris 
Michaelis Cleri in opere (quod vocatur Martyrologium 
Sanctorum Hybernia3) colligendo, castigando, illustraiido, 
et cum omnibus vetustissimis codicibus manuscriptis 
conferendo, Nos Malachias 1 Dei et Apostolicae sedis gratia 
Archiepiscopus Tuamensis et Conaciae Primas, dictum 
opus prelo ad Dei gloriam, nationis honorem, ac com- 
munem utilitatem dignum censemus. 

Datum Galvia?, 15 Kalendas Decembr., 1636. 

1 Malachias This was Malachy or Maolsechlainn O Caclhla (ffKealy or O Keely). Dr. 
Moran calls him O Quigley, (Memoirs of Dr. Oliver Plunket, p 385). His ancestors, the 
O Caclhla, were chieftains of Comnaicne-mara (Connemara) : Cambr. Evers., p. 27 ; 
O 1 Dulhagain, Topogr. Poems, p. 64. He was consecrated R. C. Archbishop of Tuain, 
11 Oct., 1031, and was killed 25 Oct., 1645, near Ballysadare, in the county of Sligo. 
Bruodin (Descr. Reyni Hibernice, p. 76,) gives the following account of his death : " Proe- 
sulem hunc (qui tertii fuit ordinis S. P. Francisci) dignissimum, barbari Calvinistae, post 
datam fidem, abscisso prius brachio dextro, Anno 1645, in minutas secuerunt partes." 
Colgan mentions an "Elenchus ecclesiarum Diocesis Tuamensis," written by this prelate, 
(whom he calls Malachias Quaeleus) from which he has extracted the portion relating to 
the Aran Islands, Actt. 8S., p. 714. See also Lynch, Vita Kirovani, p. 47. (T.) 



Visis testimoniis et authenticis peritorum approbation- 
ibus de hoc opere per fratrem Michaelem Clery Ordiriis 
Seraphici laicum fratrem collecto, libenter illud appro- 
bamus, ut in publicam lucem edatur in communem 

Datum Rosrielse, 1 27 Novembris, 1636. 

1 Rosrielce. This was the Franciscan monastery of Ros-Oirbhealaigh, or Ros-iriala 
(founded 1351), now Rosserelly, in the county of Galway. It was continued, or restored, 
after the Suppression ; and this document proves that it was inhabited so late as 1636. 
The prelate who has subscribed the above Testimonium was Boetius Mac Egan, whose 
real Irish name was Baothalach Mac Aodhagain, a Franciscan friar, educated in the Col 
lege of St. Anthony of Padua, in Louvain. He was consecrated R. C. Bishop of Elphin 
in the year 1626, and died 1650, aged 70. He is not to be confounded with another 
Boetius Mac Egan, his contemporary, also a Franciscan friar, who was Bishop of Ross at 
the same period, and came to an untimely end, having been hanged Avith the reins of his 
own horse, by a party of Cromwellian soldiers, on the public road. Hibern. Dominic., p. 
490. (T.)

i Duximus. This testimonium is subscribed by the Thomas Fleming, titular Archbishop 
of Dublin, to whom Colgan has dedicated his Acta Sanctorum Hibernise. He was the son 
of William Fleming, Baron of Slane, and at a very early age took the vows of a Fran- 
ciscan friar. It is said that he was consecrated a Bishop before he was thirty years of a ff e 
He died 2 Aug., 1651. (T.) 


De hoc libro Martyrologii Sanctorum Hibernias quern 
frater Michael Clery Ordinis Sancti Francisci ad Sanc 
torum gloriam, et communem patriae utilitatem collegit, 
non aliter censemus quam censores a Reverendo admo- 
dum patre Provincial! ejusdem fratris, scilicet dominus 
Florentius Kegan 1 et dominus Cornelius Bruodyn pro 
eodern libro inspiciendo, examinando, et approbando vel 
reprobando, assignati, iudicaverunt et decreverunt ; nos 
enim eosdem tanquam peritissimos linguae Hybernicas 
et in omnibus hystoriis et patriaa chronologiis versatis- 
simos existimamus. Quapropter illorum censurae et iu- 
dicio de praefato Martyrologio fratris Michaelis Clery in 
omnibus conformamur. In quorum fidem his manu 
propria subscripsimus. Datum in loco nostrae rnansionis 
die 8 Januarii, anno Domini 1637. 

1 Florentius Kegan. This is the Latinized form of [the name of " Flann M c Ao<lhagain," 
whose testimonial is given, p. I. ; and so "Cornelius Bruodyn" is the same who in Irish 
wrote himself "Conner M c Brody, inaugurated Mac Bruaidedha," and gave the testimonial 
printed, p. li. The bishop who here subscribes himself " fr. Rochus Kildarensis," was 
Roch or Ross Mac Geoghegan, or Mageoghagan, a Dominican friar, of the convent of 
Mullingar, whose name in religion was Rochus de Cruce. In 1622 he became Provincial 
of his order in Ireland, and was consecrated R. C. Bishop of Kildare in 1628; he died 
1641 or 1642, and was buried in the sepulchre of his family in the Franciscan abbey of 
Multifernam, County of Westmeath. Uibern. Dominic., p. 487. (T.)

On one occasion he, thus travelling on the sea on foot, met 
Bairre, Bishop of Cork, who was in a ship ; and Bairre asked 
him wherefore he traversed the sea after this manner. Scuithin 
replied that it was not the sea, but a flowery shamrock-bearing 
plain; and here is a proof of it, said he, extending his hand 
into the sea ; and he took up from it a bunch of purple flowers, 
and cast it to Bairre into the ship. Bairre also extended his 
hand into the sea, : and took a salmon from it, and cast it to 
Scuithin. From this [word] Scoith [a flower] he was named

TOIMEN, Successor of Patrick, A.D., 660. 

DIARMAID, Bishop, of Inis-Clothrann, in Loch-Ribh. He is of the 
race of Fiachra, son of Eochaidh Muighmheadhoiii. Dedi, 
daughter of Trena, son of Dubhthach h-Ua Lughair, was his 
mother, and this Dubhthach was chief poet to Laoghaire, son of 
Mall, who was monarch of Ireland, at the coming of Patrick into 
Ireland, and he showed honour and great veneration to Patrick, 
and believed in him, as appears from Patrick s Life, and Patrick 
blessed him. It was Diarmaid that composed the Cealtair 
Dichill 1 in verse, in which he invoked a countless number of the 
apostles and saints of the world, and of the saints of Ireland, as a 
protection and shelter for himself, just as Colum composed the 
hard poem called the Luirech or Sgiathluirech of Colum-Cille, 
which begins: "The shield of God as a protection upon me," &c. 
"They shall protect me against every danger," was the beginning 
, of what Diarmaid composed.

[she was called Ite] from the ioca [thirst] of the love of God which she had." (T.) 

2 Worm. The word D lol is explained a cockchafer, a leech ; Colgan renders it Vermis, 
Actt. SS. (15 Jan.) p. 73. Ore (which is probably from porcm) signifies a sucking pig, 
and is so explained here by the word bcml). Colgan (loc. ctt.) translates, or rather para 
phrases, this passage thus: "S. Ita de Cluan Credhuil, aliter Mida appellata; ejus primum 
et proprium nomen fuit Derthrea, sive Dorothea. Ranim vivumque continue) pro Domino 
patiebatur martyrium, permittens carnem suam a quodam venenosi vermis genere longo 
temporis spatio corrodi, ita quod latus ejus sic paulatim exhauriens et consumens, vermis 
ipse in magnitudinem porcini foetus excreverit. Obiit, anno 5G9." (T.) 



ITE, 1 Virgin, of Cluain-creadhail. Mide was another name for 
her. It is she that suffered great martyrdom for God ; a worm 2 
was sucking her, unknown to all, for a long time until it was 
larger than an ore, or sucking pig, so that it withered all her 
side; and moreover Cuimin of Coindeire states in the poem 3 
which begins : " Patrick of the city of Macha loved," that for 
love of the Lord she never laid down her cheek or her face to 
rest. Thus he says : 

" Mide loved great nursing, 

Great humility without ambition ; 
Her cheek on the pillow she never laid, 
From love of the Lord," &c. 

Anno Domini, 569. Deirdre was her first name. She was 
of the race of Fiacha Suighdhe, son of Feidhlimidh Reachtmhar, 
son of Tuathal Teachtmhar. Neacht was the name of her mother.

3 Poem. This poem, which is frequently quoted by our author, has been printed, with a 
translation by Mr. Curry, in the late Rev. Matthew Kelly s " Calendar of Irish Saints," 
p. 160. The Editor, however, does not state from what MS. he has copied. (T.) 

^Bishops. A more recent hand has added here in Roman characters, "filii Finnii alias 
Fincrittani." (T.) 

5 Crebec. A more recent hand has added here in Roman characters, " Mar. [i.e. the 
Martyrology of Marianus O Gorman,] Adventus filiarum Carbrei. (Acldit M. Taml. D r- 
mitatio Itseas, [read lice] et filiarum Carbrei)." The meaning is, that Marian O Gorman 
adds at this day " the Coming of the Daughters of Carbre" (cecc mgeri cdiT) Choifipjie) ; 
and that the Martyrology of Tamhlacht adds "Dormitatio Itse et filiarum Carbrei."

2 Genealogies. This is the book frequently quoted by Colgan, under the title of Sancti- 
logium Genealogicum. Copies of it are extant in the Book of Lecan, Book of Leinster, and other 
MSS. A more recent hand has written at the end of this paragraph, " Duo sunt Fursaei in 
Hagiogenesi :" meaning by Hagiogenesis, what Colgan has termed the Sanctilog. Geneal. (T.) 



FURSA, Abbot. He was of the Conaille-Muirtheimhne, as in this 
quatrain : 

tl The father of Fursa, a pure true saying, 
Was Lochin of Dal-Araidhe, 
The mother of this son 
Was Gelgeis, daughter of the king of Connacht." 

That is, daughter of Guaire Aidhne ; or Gelgels daughter of 
Aedh Finn, according to another book called the Marty rology of 
Tamhlacht. 1 It is therefore likely that this Fursa is of the race 
or house of Fiacha Araidhe, from whom are [descended] the Dal- 
Araidhe, and they are of the race of Iriel, son of Conall Cearnach ; 
and he it was that dwelt in France, at a place called Peronne. 
But, according to the sacred genealogies, 2 he is not of the race 
of Fiacha, but of the race of Maelcroich, son of Rudhraighe.

MAELISA UA BROLCHAIN. It was he that composed the poem for

" O AngeJ carry, O Michael, very miraculous, 
To the Lord my supplication," &c. 

LITHGHEAN, of Cluain-mor-Lithghein, in Ui-Failghe, in Leinster. 
He was of the race of Cathaeir Mor, monarch of Ireland ; and 
Broinnfhinn Brecc, daughter of Lughna, and sister of Bishop 
Ibhar, was his mother.

says that he used to instruct all with lights, and that he never 
said a word but what was pleasing to God. Thus he says : 
" Fachtna, the generous and pure, loved 
To instruct all with candles, 2 
He never said a fact of grace 
But what was pleasing to his Lord." 
SUIBHNE, son of Eoghan. 
MOLAISSI, Mac Ua Necte. 

2 Candles. There is another reading, |ie coirme, " with chaunts." (See Dr. Kelly s 
" Calendar," p. 167.) But it is evident from the paraphrase in the text that our author 
read coirmtit>, " candles." (T.)

i Coindeire. The words within brackets are written in what has hitherto been called 
"the more recent hand." The words which follow to the end of the paragraph are in 
Michael O Clery s hand, and are written over the addition in brackets. Hence Mr. Curry 
very justly infers that the axithor of these addition? was coeval with O Uery. It follows 



FEICHIN, Abbot of Fobhar, of Baile-Fhobhair in Meath, A.D. 664. 
It was Feichin of Fobhar also that consecrated Imaigh, an island 
in which there is a church of Feichin, in the west of Connaught, 
in O Flaherty s country, as is evident from his own life, in which 
many wonders and miracles are read of. He was of the race of 
Eochaidh Finnfuathart, of which is [also] Brigid herself, accord 
ing to the poem beginning "The Hagiology of the Saints of 
Inis-Fail." Cuimin of Condeire says, in the poem which begins, 
"Patrick of the city of Macha loves, &c.," that Feichin used not 
to put any clothes between his side or his ribs and the bed or 
the cell in which he used to lie. Thus he says : 
" Feichin the generous of Fobhar loved, 
It was no hypocritical devotion, 
To place his meagre rib 
Upon a hard cell without clothes." 

The very old vellum book, which we have mentioned at Brigid, 1st 
of February, and at Patrick, 17th of March, states that Feichin of 
Fobhar, in his habits and life was like unto Anthony the monk. 

LOICHEIN, son of Dubh Dlighidh, i.e., Molaga of Tulach-min-Molaga, 
in Munster, and of Lann-Beachaire in Fine-Gall. He is of the 
race of Fearghus, son of Ross, son of Rudhraighe. Loichein is 
called Molaga. 

^ENGHUS, Bishop [of Coindeire, whose life is extant. His common 
name was Mac Nisi, from his mother Neas. Sed videtur 
Mnus vocari a Mart Tarnl] He is of the race of Eochaidh, 
son of Muireadh, who is of the line of Heremon. 


LUGHNA, Priest, of Cill-tarsna. 

SARAN. This may be the Saraii who consecrated Tigh-Saraiii in 
Dealbhna, and who is of the race of Dealbhaeth, son of Cas, 
son of Conall Eachluath, who is of the stock of Cormac Cas, 
son of Oilioll Oluim. 

also that the additions made by this author were seen and approved by O Clery, and 
therefore must be regarded as of equal authority with the text. ~Envs i& for sEnghiis, the 
aspirated yh being omitted in pronunciation. (T.)

GUASACHT, Bishop, son of Maelchu, in Granard. 

MANCHAN, of Liath, son of Indagli. Mella was the name of his 
mother, and his two sisters were Grealla and Greillseach. There 
is a church called Liath-Manchain, or Leth-Manchain, in Dealbh- 
na-Mhec-Cochlain. His relics are at the same place in a shrine, 
which is beautifully covered with boards on the inside, and with 
bronze outside them, and very beautifully carved. It was Man- 
chaii of Liath that composed the charming poem, i.e. : 

"Would that, O Son of the living God! 
O eternal ancient King !" &c. 

We find Manchan of Liath-Manchain, of the race of Maelcroich, 
son of Rudhraighe ; and Manchan, son of Failbhe, of the race of 
Conall Gulban, son of Niall ; and Manchan of Liath, son of 
Indagh, who is this one. 

A very old vellum book, in which are found the Martyrology 
of Tamhlacht-Maoilruain and the saints of the same name, and 
an account of many of the mothers of the saints, &c., states, that 
Manchan of Liath, in habits and life, was like unto Hieronimus, 
who was very learned.

NAILE, of Inbher-Naile in Tir-Baghuine, in Cinel-Conaill ; and 
afterwards Abbot of Cill-Naile and Daimhinis in Feara-Manach. 
He was a son of Aenghus, (son of Nadfraech, son of Core, son of 
Lughaidh,) who was king of Munster ; and Eithne, daughter of 
Crimhthann Cosgrach, was his mother, according to his own 

It was to him God gave water from the hard stony rock, when 
great thirst had seized him and Maedhog of Fearna, with the 
monks of both ; when he made a distant cast of his crozier at 
the hard stony rock, so that a stream of pure spring water 
gushed therefrom ; just as this spring is now to be seen at Cill- 
Naile, according to Naile s own Life, chap. 1 0. 

The Life of Colum Cille, chap. 90, states that Naile came into 
the presence of Colum Cille for the first time, at the Inbher, and 
that Colum Cille and Naile blessed the place, and that it is from 
Naile the church has been thenceforth named.

Amhra on Seanan of Inis-Cathaigh. And he was interred at 
Inis-Caoil, a place sacred to Conall of Inis-Caoil.

MAEDHOG, Bishop, of Fearna. Aedh was his first name. He 
was of the race of Colla Uais, monarch of Erinn. Eithne was 
the name of his mother, of the race of Amhalghaidh, son of 
Fiachra, son of Eochaidh Muighmlieadhoin. Among his first 
miracles was the flag-stone upon which he was brought to be 
baptized, upon which people used to be ferried out and in, just 
as in every other boat, to the island in the lake, on which he was 
born. Of his miracles also was that the spinster s distaff, which 
was in the hand of Maedhog s mother, Eithne, when she was 
bringing him forth, which was a withered hard stick of hazel, 
grew up with leaves and blossoms and afterwards with goodly 
fruit ; and this hazel is still in existence as a green tree without 
decay or withering, producing nuts every year in Inis-Breach- 
mhaighe, &c., A.D. 624, was the date when he resigned his spirit 
to heaven. 

A very old vellum book in which are found the Martyrology of 
Maelruain of Tamhlacht, and many other matters which relate 
to the saints and their mothers, states that Maedhog of Fearna 
in habits and life was like unto Cornelius the Pope. 

LUGHAEDH, son of Eochaidh of Tir-da-chraobh, of the race of 
Laeghaire, son of Niall. There is a Tir-da-chraobh in Cinel- 
Fiachach, but I know of no church at that place called Tir-da-

1 r^ victorww. This is the first line of the metrical Life of St. Brigid, published from 
the Book of Hymns, by Colgan ; Trias T/iaum., p. 515. (T.) 



BRIGHIT, Virgin, abbess of Cill-dara. She was of the race of 
Eochaidh Finnfuathairt, son of Feidhlimidh Reachtmhar, son of 
Tuathal Teachtmhar, monarch of Erinn. Broiccseach, daughter 
of Dallbronach, son of Aedh Meamhair, was her mother, and she 
was the sister of Ultan of Ard-Breccain, and it was Ultan that 
collected the virtues and miracles of Brighit together, and who 
commanded his disciple Brogan to put them into poetry, as is 
evident in the Book of Hymns, i.e., "The victorious 1 Brighit 
did not love," &c. 

When Moling was returning from the king of Erinn, after 
obtaining the remission of the Borumha 2 from Fionnachta, king 
of Erinn, the people of the king were seized with regret, and 
they followed him to kill him. When Moling saw this he had 
recourse to the protection of the saints, and he implored Brighit 
first, and said : " Brighit, bless our path," &c. 

A very ancient old book of vellum, in which is found the 
Martyrology of Maelruain of Tamhlacht and the saints of the 
same name, and the names of many of the mothers of the saints, 
states that Brighit was following the manners and the life 
which the holy Mary, mother of Jesus had. 

It was this Brighit, too, that did not take her mind or her 
attention from the Lord for the space of one hour at any time, 
but was constantly mentioning Him, and ever constantly think 
ing of Him, as is evident in her own life, and also in the life of 
Saint Brenainn, bishop of Cluain-fearta. She was very hospit 
able and very charitable to guests and to needy people. She 
was humble, and attended to the herding of sheep and early 
rising, as her life proves, and as Cuimin of Coindeire states in 

2 Borumha. The tribute of oxen See O Donovan ; Fragments of Annals, pp. 77, 89. (T.)

1 A.D. 525. The more recent hand has corrected this date to T>22, adding in the margin 
this note: "ex ii. binario nnmero fecit qninariam literam transcriit<>ris error:" i.e., the 
transcriber mistook T>XXH for T>XXU. (T.) 


the poem whose beginning is, "Patrick of the fort of Macha 
loved," &c. Thus he says : 

" The blessed Brighit loved 

Constant piety, which was not prescribed ; 
Sheep-herding and early rising 
Hospitality towards men of virtues." 

She spent indeed 74 years diligently serving the Lord, perform 
ing signs and miracles, curing every disease, and sickness in 
general, as is evident in her own life, until she yielded her

said before, A.D. 525, 1 and she was buried at Dun, in one tomb

1 Ua Sechnasaigh. Tliis was probably "The O Shaughnessy," or head of the family at 
the time when this work was compiled, and whose testimony, our author intimates, was 
the more worthy of credit, because St. Colman Mac Duach was the patron saint of Tiis 
tribe and of the same race. See Geneal. Table, O Donovan s Hy Fiachrach. (T.)

COLMAN, Bishop, i.e., Mac Duach of Cill-mic-Duach in Connachta. 
He was of the race of Fiachra, son of Eochaidh Muidhmheadhoin. 
Great were his virtues and miracles. Ua Sechnasaigh 1 says that 
the festival of Mac Duach is on the 27th of the month of Octo 
ber, for he was his own patron and his relative.

of the race of Ciar, son of Fergus, son of Ros, son of Rudhraighe.

hand says "Marian. M. Tanil.," as the authority for saying that Core was of Drum 
Lomain. But this is a mistake; the G oss in M. O Gorman evidently states that both 
Cota and Core are of Drum Loma n, (or Drum Lommain), and the Mart. Taml. says the 
same : Coyic acuy Cora o "Ofitumm, omittmg Loman. (T.)

ETCHEN, Bishop, of Cluain-foda in Fir-Bile, in Meath. He was of 
the race of Laeghaire Lore of the Leinstermen. And it was he 
that commanded the wild ox to come to him to plough, when 
he bestowed the order of priest upon Colum Cille in place of 
the order of bishop. And Colum Cille said that he would not 
accept of any different orders as long as he should live ; and 
this indeed he observed, and no one ever came to that church 
to receive orders from that time forth, A.D. 577. The life of 
Colum Cille, chap. 38, agrees with this. 1 

FiNDiA, 2 Bishop, of Magh-bile ; and he was of the race of Fiatach 
Finn, monarch of Erin, according to the poem " NaovmJi- 
skencas naomh Insi Fail" &c., [The saint-history of the saints 
of Inis Fail, &c.,] which says thus [of him] " Finnen of fair 
Maghbile," &c. 

A very ancient old vellum book, in which is found the Mar- 
tyrology of Maelruain of Tamhlacht, and the synonymes of the 
Irish saints, states that Finnen of Magh-bile was in manners 
and life like unto James the apostle.

1 Ros-mithe. The later hand adds here, "6 Rop ^accna, 1M. T.," meaning that the

Fraech of Cluain Conmaicne, in Muinter-Eolais, was his mother. 
When he was a disciple to Bishop Daigh, son of Cairell, Daigh 
sent him to a certain mill in Magh Muirtheimhne with a sack of 
wheat to grind it, and he found a woman and a boy of the people 
of the territory before him at the mill, they having with them 
a sack of oats to grind it ; and Berach asked of them their turn 
of the mill, but they did not give it to him, and they put toge 
ther the oats and the wheat into the mill, and a division was 
made between them in the mill through the miracles of God 
and of Berach, so that the wheat was on one side and the oats 
on the other side without the admixture of the meal of the one 
with that of the other, as is evident in his life, in which many 
miracles and signs are read of.

1 Aedh. The later hand adds here, " Sed secundum Marianum et M. Taml. dicitur mac 
CCon^ura." "But according to M. O Gorman and the Mart. Taml. he is called son of 
Aengus." (T.) c 

zForannan. The later hand has written in the margin T)., i.e., Nota. The Irish MS. do 
not give Fionnbar as one of the sons of Eoghan. The only authority for this genealogy is 
the Latin Life of S. Forannan, published by Colgan, at 15 Febr. This is the meaning of 
the concluding clause, beginning " Take notice." (T.) 

J Atmjhas. The later hand adds, u Sed secundum M. Taml. hie fuit episcopus Rota na 


FERGHAS, son of AedL 1 

FOR ANNAN, 2 son of Aedh. Farannan, son of Conn, son of Colga, 

son of Aedh, son of Fionnbarr, son of Eoghan, son of Niall, 

according to the life of Farannan, chap. 1. 

Take notice that Fionnbarr was not of the ten sons that 

Eoghan had. 


AEDH GLAS, Bishop, of Rath na n-Epscop. 
AENGHAS, 3 Bishop. 
ROIBNE, Abbot. 


FIONNTAIN, son of Gaibhreine, son of Corcran, son of Eochaidh, 
abbot of Cluain-eidlmeach in Laoighis. He is of the race of 
Eochaidh Finnfuathairt from whom was Brighit. Great was the 
abstinence of this holy Fionntain, as is evident in this verse : 
" Fionntain, the generous, [Fionntain the generous 4 ] 
He never ate during his time 
But bread of barley corn, 
And water of earthy clay." 

A very ancient vellum book, in which is found the Martyrology 
of Maelruain, of Tamhlacht, and many other things which treat 
of the saints of Erin, states that Fionntain, of Cluain-heidhnech, 
chief head of the monks of Erin, in his manners and life resem 
bled Benedictus, head of the monks of Europe. 
CORMAC, Bishop, of Ath Truim in Laeghaire, and successor of 
Patrick. Fuineacht, daughter of Maelfithrigh, son of Dioma, 
son of Colman, was his mother. A.D. 496.

this was the bishop of Rath-na-nespoc. Perhaps he was Aengus Laimhiodhan, bishop of 
Rath-na-nespoc, and he was of the race of Bresal Brec from whom descend the Osraighe." 

4 The generous. The metre requires the repetition of these words, which are therefore 
added in brackets. In lines of this structure it is the custom of Irish scribes to write the 
words but once. (T.)

BOLCAN, Bishop. 

COLGA, Mac Ua Duinechda, 1 i.e., Lector of Cluain-mac-nois. It 
was he that composed the kind of prayer called the Scuab 
Crabhaidh. 2 It was to him Paul the Apostle came to converse 
with him, and to help him on in his road, and he took his 
satchel of books at M6in-tire-an-air, and it was he that pleaded 
for him to the school of Cluain-mic-Nois ; and the prologue or 
preface which is before that prayer states that this Colga was a 
saint, was a priest, and was a scribe of the saints of Erin, &c. 
And there is a Saint Colga, with his pedigree, among the race of 
Dathi, son of Fiachra, son of Eochaidh Muidhmhedhrdn, and he 
may perhaps be this Colga.

2 Diarmaid. The words within brackets are written as a gloss, but in the original hand, 
over the name Comdhan. (T.) 


BEGAN, the Blind, of Ceann-saile. 


TALMACH. The Life of Barre states, chap. 10, that Talmach gave 
his church to God and to Barre ; for he was at Barrels school

l Liuen. This is probably a clerical error for limien, i.e., Leduin, Leduina, or Liadain, 
the name given in the Kilkenny MS. of his Life, as printed by Colgan, Actt. SS. p. 4-58, 
and App. c. 2, p. 472. (T.) 


of Heremon. And Liuen 1 was the name of his mother, accord 
ing to his own Life, chap. 21. Countless were the signs and 
miracles which God performed on earth through him. It was 
he that used to order the stones to kindle with a puff of his 
breath. It was he also that made fish, honey, and oil, of the 
little bit of meat in the time of the fast, when Brenainn of Birr 
and Ciaran of Cluain came on a visit to him, as appears from 
his Life ; together with many other miracles. He used to be 
often [immersed] in a vat of cold water for the love of the Lord 
whom he served. It is he that used to go to the sea rock that 
was far distant in the sea, (where his nurse, i.e., Coca, was), with 
out ship or boat, and used to return again, as appears from his 
own Life, chap. 19. Sixty years and three hundred was his 
age when he yielded his spirit. Ciaran dedicated his congrega 
tion to God and to Carthach. Life of Ciaran, chap. 34. 

A very ancient vellum old book, which we have mentioned 
at Brighit, 1st of Feb., states that Ciaran of Saighir was, in his 
manners and life, like unto Pope Clement. 

CARTHACH, Bishop, alumnus of Ciaran of Saighir. One of his 
places was Druim-fertain, and in Cairbre Ua Ciardha is Druim- 
fertain 2 ; and to him belongs Inis Uachtair in Loch Sileann, 
and Cill Charthaigh in Tir-Boghaine in Cinel Conaill. He was 
son of Aenghus, son of Nadfraech king of Munster, &c. 


MuADAN, Bishop, of Cam Furbaidhe. The Life of Barre, chap. 1 8, 
states that Muadan of Aill Nuaitin 3 was at school under Barre 
at Corcach, together with many other saints, and that they all 
offered themselves and their churches to God and to Barre, and I 
think that it is this, or the Muadan who is at 30th of August, it 
speaks of ; for I find but these two names 4 in the Martyrology. 

2 Druim-fertain. The more recent hand adds "no pe|\T>airri, T. ;" meaning that the 
Mart. Taml. reads Druim-ferdaimh. (T.) 

3 Aill Nuaitin. So in the MS., but perhaps we should read Aill Muaidin. (T.) 

4 Names: i.e., I find but these two of the name. (T.)

1 Head Colgan lias given a translation of the whole of this account of Cairbre Crom, 
Actt. SS. p. 508. (T.) 

2 Church. The word here used to signify church is Regies, ecclesia regularis, or abba- 
tialis; it generally signifies a church specially devoted to burials. (T.) 

3 Half-speckled. Colgan explains this to mean that one half of the spectre appeared 
shining as if in glory, the other half black as before, to intimate that the deliverance of the 
king was but half effected: "Rex apparuit fulgentem media ex parte, ex altera atrain. 
ut prius, proferens speciem." Ubi supra. (T.) 


CAIRPRE CROM, (son of Feradhach, son of Lughaidh, son of Dalian, 
son of Bresal, son of Maine Mor, from whom descend the TJi- 
Maine, of the race of Colla-da-chrioeh, who was of the posterity 
of Heremon), Bishop of Cluain-mic-Nois, head 1 of the religion 
of the greater part of Erinn in his time. It is to him was shown 
the spirit of Maelsechlainn, son of Maelruanaidh, king of Erinn. 
On a certain day, when he was praying alone in his church 2 
after vespers, he saw a coal-black figure coming towards him so 
that it stood in his presence. The Bishop asked who he was ? 
And he answered that he was Maelsechlainn, son of Maelruan 
aidh, and he told him every kind of pain which he was suffering 
in Purgatory, and the cause why he himself and his spiritual 
director were punished in Purgatory, and their stories in general. 
As to the bishop, he undertook to make intercession for the 
king ; and he ordered the priests to pray for the priest to bring 
him from pains ; and [said] that he would himself pray for the 
king. They did so, respectively, to the end of half a year. As 
Cairpre was at prayer, at the end of this period, he saw the king 
[coming] towards him and he half-speckled 3 ; and he returned 
thanks to the bishop for what he had done for him, and he im 
plored of him to do the same to the end of another half year. 
They did so ; they fasted and prayed fervently, and gave frequent 
alms, to the end of another half year ; and the king came in a 
bright form towards him, and he returned thanks to the holy 
bishop for what he had done ; and he told him that he would 
go to Heaven on that day, and the priest on the next day ; and 
Cairpre asked why he should go before him [i.e., before the priest}. 
The king said that it was owing to the excellence of his prayers 
and the superiority of his intercession to that of the priests, i.e., 
twelve priests, who were at Cluain-mic-Nois at that time, &c. 

[A.D. 1022, on the 4th of the Nones of September, Maelsech 
lainn died. 4 ] 

4 Died. The clause within brackets is added in the more recent hand; but the date is 
wrong. The writer, by an oversight, has given the year and day on which Maelsechlainn 
IT. died, not the year and day on which Maelsechlainn I. died. The true date is Tuesday, 
30th Nov., 863. See O Flaherty, Ogyg. p. 434, 436. (T.)

Cualann in Leinster. Druigen, Luigen, Luicell, Macha, and 
Riornhtach, in Cill-na-ningen in Ui-Briuin- Cualann ; they were 
the children of Leinin, son of Gannchu, i.e., the sisters of Brighit, 
daughter of Leinin, as shall be said presently.

SENAN, Bishop, of Inis-Cathaigh, son of Gerrginn. He was of the 
race of Conaire, son of Mogh-lamha. This is the Senan whom 
Patrick foretold before his birth, when the Corco-Baiscinn came 
across the Luimneach from the north to him to ask to be bap 
tized. And Patrick said to them, that there was an illustrious 
child among them then in a woman s womb, who should baptize 
them afterwards, i.e. Senan. And he foretold that Senan would 
occupy the island, as was afterwards fulfilled ; for it was Senan 
that blessed Inis-Cathaigh, and expelled from it the monster, 
from which the island was named, i.e., Cathach, and this mon 
ster used to injure people and cattle, so that it durst not be 
inhabited or occupied until Senan came, as is said in his life. 

Cuimin, of Coindeire, states that Senan loved to have sick 
ness upon him, so that there were thirty diseases 011 his body.

1 Two-and- Twenty. Colgaii enumerates two-and-twenty saints of this name, with their 
festivals, Actt. S.S., Append, ad Vitam S. Senani, c. 1, p. 537 (erroneously 541.) In the Index 
to the present work will also be found twenty-tAvo of the name, Avitli references to their 
festivals. (T.) 

* Lodging. Lit., " Stranger s house. (T.) 


But whichever Senan he means, of the two-and-twenty 1 who 

have festivals, this is what he says : 
" Senan, noble invalid, loved, 

Good was every answer of his answers ; 
To have thirty diseases in his body 
Which was enough of evil to this sage." 

BEOAEDH, Bishop, of Ardcarna, in Connachta, A.D. 523. He was 
of the race of Lughaidh, son of Ith. The same Cuimin, of 
Coindeire, in the poem whose beginning is, " Patrick of great 
Macha loved," states that Beoaedh was accustomed to give 
lodging 2 and gifts to every person. It is thus he says : 
" Beoaedh, the affectionate, loved, 
Before 3 all the saints of Erin, 
House of guests and presents, 
He gave to each person."

3 Before: i.e., above, more than all. Colgan understands this to signify that he enter 
tained all the saints of Ireland with hospitality and gifts. But the original does not bear 
this out. (O D.) 

4 Curcach. The more recent hand adds, " Cinema Local fi, M. Turnip meaning that the

EOGHAN. I think this is Eoghan, son of Saran, of Cluain-Caolain, 
for whom Ailbhe, 2 of Imleach lobhair, composed the very hard

DENEG, of Inis-Sedna. 


PATRICK, noble Apostle of the island of Erinn, and head of the 
religion of the Gaeidhil, the first primate, and the first legate 
who was appointed in Erinn ; and it was he, moreover, that 
brought the people of Erinn, both men and women, from the 
darkness of sins, and vices, and paganism, to the light of faith, 
and piety, and knowledge of the Lord. Three hundred and 
fifty holy bishops, and three hundred priests, was the number 
on whom he conferred orders. Three hundred alphabets he 
wrote, and three hundred churches he erected, as these verses 
prove : 

" Seven times fifty holy learned bishops 

This holy man consecrated, 

With three hundred virgin presbyters, 

Upon whom he conferred orders ; 
" Three hundred alphabets 2 he wrote, 

Beautiful was the touch of his hand ; 

Three hundred beautiful churches he founded, 

He raised them from the ground." 

It is he, moreover, that remained from Shrovetide till Easter 
without food, as is [stated] in his own Life, and as Cuimin of 
Coindere proves in the poem, whose beginning is : 

" Patrick of the fort of Macha loved, 
Son of Calpurn of high rule, 
From Shrovetide till Easter [to be] without food, 
No penance was greater than his penances." 

Innumerable also was the number of signs and miracles he 
performed ; by resuscitating the dead from death ; by curing 
lepers, and the blind, and the lame, and people of every disease

resigned his spirit in the year 493. Bishop Tasach was he who 
gave the body of Christ to Patrick.

1 Congregation: i.e., tho number of his monks. (T.) 

2 Curacli. A boat or canoe, of wicker-work, covered with skins. It is still in use in 
Ireland, although now generally covered with tarred canvas. (T.) 



ENDA, Abbot, of Ara. Conall Derg, son of Daimhin, son of Coirpre 
Domhairgid, his father; of the race of Colla-da-chrioch pre 
cisely. Aebhfhinn, daughter of Ainmire, son of Ronan, king 
of the Ards, was his mother and the mother of Libae ; and he 
resigned his heirship of a kingdom and of the great wealth of 
his patrimony for God ; and he founded a church in Ara, 
and afterwards assumed the abbacy thereof. Thrice fifty was 
his congregation. 1 The test and proof which he used to put 
upon them every evening to clear them of sins, was to put 
every man of them in turn into a curach 2 without any hide 
upon it at all, out upon the sea ; and the salt water would get 
into the curach, if there was any crime or sin upon the man 
who was in it. It would not get in if he was free from sins ; 
and Enda, the abbot, was the last who entered the currach. 
There was not found any man, of the one hundred and fifty, 
who did not escape the wetting from the currach, excepting 
only Gigniat, the cook of Enda. What hast thou done, O Gig- 
mat, said Enda. He said that he did nothing but put a little 
addition to his own share from the share of Ciaran, son of the 
artificer. Enda ordered him to leave the island. And he 
said, There is no room for a thief here ; I will not permit this 
at all. 

Cuimin, of Coindeire, in the poem which begins, " Patrick of 
the fort of Macha loved," states, that he used to be in a stone 
prison praying for all persons. Thus it says : 

" Enda of the high piety loved 

In Ara, victory with sweetness, 
A prison of hard narrow stone 
To bring all unto heaven."

1 Momhaedog. Colgan seems to have had a different copy of this work, for lie tells us 
(Actt. SS. p. 727, n. 7,) that the "Mart. Dungallen." has the folloAvint; notice of this 
saint on 28 Mart., " Momoedocus, cle Fedh-duin, i.e., Mida, filius Mid^noe." These words.

was of the race of Cathaoir Mor of Leinster. 

however, occur in the Mart. Taml., and it is possible that Colgan may have attributed 
them to the Mart. Dung, by mistake. It is evident, that the compilers of the present 
work did not (with Colgan) identify Momhaedog with the saint* of the same name who 
are commemorated April 11, May 18, and Aug. 13. (T.)

MOCHUA, Abbot, of Balla, in Ceara in Connachta. It is lie that 
was blessed by Comhgall of Bennchair, when he was a little 
lame boy in a decline with his parents ; and Comhgall fostered 
and educated him afterwards, until he went to Connachta, 
where he built a church, i.e., Balla was its name. 1 
TOLA, Bishop, of Disert Tola, in the upper part of Dal Cais, in 
Thomond. He was of the race of Corbmac, son of Tadhg, son 
of Cian, son of Oiiioll Olum. 
FERGHUS, Bishop, of Druim-Lethglaisi, A.D. 583. 
COLMAN, of Linn-Uachaille on the brink of Cassan-linne, in Ulster. 

FiACHNA. There is another Fiachna at 29 April, and it is proba 
ble that it is of one of them that Cuimin of Coindeire gave the 
character, that he never pronounced a bad word, but [always] 
a word which was pleasing to God. Tt is thus he speaks : 
" Fiachna loved true devotion, 

He instructed all to follow it equally. 

He never said a naughty word, 

Nor aught but what was pleasing to bis Lord." 

He was, perhaps, of the race of Eoghan, son of Niall. 
LIBER, of Lethdumha. 
COLMAN, son of Ronan, son of Loam. He was of the race of 

Conall Gulban, son of Niall. 


MACHABEUS, i.e., Gilla-Mochaidhbeo, abbot of the Monastery of

CEALLACH, successor of Patrick. There is a Ceallach, deacon, of 
Gleann-da-locha in Leinster (7th of October), and whichever of 
them is called Ceallach, son of Connrnach, he is intended in 
this stanza, which is in the poem beginning " Patrick of the fort 
of Macha loves/ which Cuimin of Coindeire composed, where 
we read, that he obtained it from God to be blind, deaf, and 
lame. Thus it says : 

" Ceallach, son of Connmach, loved

Which was granted him, a severe request."

TIGHERNACH, Bishop, of Cluain-eois in Fera-Manach, or it is be 
tween Fera-Manach and Oirghialla Cluain-eois is. Tighernacli 
is of the race of Cathaoir Mor, monarch of Erinn, of the Leinster- 
men. Dearfraoich, daughter of Eochaidh, son of Criomhthann,

Colum-Cille and the king of Erinn, Diarmait, son of Fergus 
Cerrbheoil, after the killing of Bresal, his son, came to where 
Becan was, they found him erecting a fort, and a wet cloak 
about him, and he praying. Concerning which was said : 
" Making a wall, praying, 
Kneeling, pure prayer, 
His tears flowing without unwillingness, 
Were the virtues of Becan without fault. 
" Hand on a stone, hand lifted up, 
Knee bent to set a rock, 
Eye shedding tears, other lamentation, 
And mouth praying." 

Becan looked aside, and he saw Diarmaid. Into the earth, thou 
murderer, said he, and he sunk into the earth to his knees. 
Under my protection he has come to thee, said Colum Cille, to

i Erinn. The more recent hand writes here, p. CCenjtnf , meaning that this quatrain 
occurs on the 5th April in the Felire or Martyrology of Aengus. The same hand adds 
also, in Roman letters, " Baptismus S. Patricii, M. Taml? where we have the words 
" Baptisma Patricii venit in Hiberniam," meaning not the day on which S. Patrick was 
baptized, but the day on which he baptized his first convert. The Scholium on this 
stanza of the Felire says that, " the first baptism of Patrick" means Sinell, son of Finn- 
chadh, of the Ui Garchon, who was the first person baptized in Ireland by Patrick. The 
on the word rminiTHi is here ame^a, honorable; but the same word at April 1.1. 


resuscitate his son for him. Becan resuscitated Bresal, the 
king s son, from the dead. 

" On the great festival of the son of Cula, 
Of Becan with the victory of austerity, 
The first baptism of Patrick 
Which he performed in Erinn." 1

FIONAN CAM, of Ceann-Eitigh, and of Sliabh-Bladhma. He was

daughter of Cian, was his mother. 3 
MAC LIAG, of Doire. 
RUISEN, of Inis-Picht. And that he was the same as Koss, 4 son

agreeing with baptism ; if the other signification be adopted it must agree with Patrick. (T.)

3 His mother. The more recent hand adds, "Pioncm cam .1. ctaon afio-pg. Mar. 1 1

CENNFAELADH, Abbot, of Bennchair. The Cain Adamnain states

who went security for liberating the women from military ser 
vice, from bondage, and from every other slavery.

BROGAN. The Life of Bairre, cap. 10, states that Brogan, son of 
Senan, was a pupil of Bairre s, and that he used to make three 
lessons every day with him until orders were conferred on 
him, and that he offered himself with his church, i.e., Cluain- 
carna, to Bairre ; and I think that either this, or the Brogan 
who is at the 27th of June, is he who is mentioned here, for 
every other person of the name is surnamed from a church, or 
from his father, except these only. 



CuANNA, son of Miodharn, of Ros-eo, and at Maghlacha, 2 in the 
east of Magh Breagh. He was of the seed of Enna, son of 
Niall, and he was a noble virgin in body and soul, as the gloss 
on the Felire of Aenghus states. 3 




2 And at Maghlacha, The copulative seems to have been introduced here through inad 
vertence, for in the Martyrology of Tamhlact, and in the gloss on Marian. Gorman (the 
authority for the location of Saints which this Calendar follows,) Ros-eo is placed in 
Maghlacha. (R.) 

3 States. The gloss alluded to is as follows : " i.e., virgo nobilis corpore et spiritu." (T.)

TASSACH, Bishop, of Rath Colptha, in Ulster, i.e., in Leth-Cathail. 
This is the Tassach who gave the body of Christ to St. Patrick 
in the monastery of Sabhall, as the Life of Patrick states, 1 chap. 
. . . , and as Fiach, the bishop, disciple of Patrick, states in the 
quatrain. 2 

CILLEN, son of Lubnen. I think that this is the Cillen, son of 
Lubnen, abbot of Biorra, whom the Cain Adamnain mentions 
as one of the saints whom Adamnaii received as security for 
liberating the women from every bond- work, and from every 
slavery to which they had been liable. 



RUADHAN, son of Ferghus, abbot of Lothra. There were one 
hundred and fifty persons in his congregation, and they used to 
obtain sufficiency always without human labour to sustain 
them, by continually praying to and praising the Lord of the 
elements. He was of the race of Eoghan Mor, son of Oilioll 
Olum, i.e., Ruadhan, son of Fergus Bern, son of Eochaidh, son 
of Dera Dubh, son of Daire Cerb, son of Oilioll Flannbeg, son 
of Fiacha Muillethan, son of Eoghan Mor, son of Oilioll Olum. 

A very old ancient book, on vellum, as we have mentioned 
at Brighit, 1 st of February, states, that Ruadhan of Lothra was, 
in manners and life, like Matthew the Apostle. 

GREALLAN, son of Rotan. 

SARNAT, of Dairinis Ceitne. She is of the race of Eochaidh Fionn 
Fuathnairt, from whom is Brighit.

DONNAN, of Ega, Abbot. Ega is the name of an island in which 
he was, after his coming from Erin. And there came robbers of

mass. He requested of them not to kill him until he should

afterwards beheaded and fifty-two of his monks along with

1 The same as Dicku. This cannot be. Dichu of Sabhall, and his six brothers, Laeg- 
haire of Dun, Ailill of Magh-bile [Movilla], Duirthecht of Aendruim [Mahee Island], 
Eoghan of Cillcleithi [Kilclief], Eos of Dundalethglas [Downpatrick], and Niall of Cill- 
cleithi [Kilclief], were sons of Trichem, a chief of TJladh, who was of the race of Fiatach 
Finn, the ancestor of the Dal Fiatach, a strictly Ultonian tribe, and all their churches 
were within his territory ; whereas Modichu was brother of St. Bairre of Cork, and ;?on of 
Aimergen, who was ninth in descent from Brian son of Eochaidh Muighmedhoin, the 
founder of a distinguished Connacian family. (R.) 

2 Aenghus. The words manac T>O TTloctiT>a are quoted from the Scholia on the Felire 
of Aengus. (T.) 


DIOCHU, of Sabhall. It is likely that this is the Dichu, son of 
Trichem, of the race of Fiatach Finn, monarch of Erin; and 
that it was he that gave Sabhall to Patrick ; and that it was to 
him Patrick gave the famous blessing by which he promised 
him the kingdom of heaven, as in the quatrain which is in the 
Life of Patrick : 

" The blessing of God on Dichu, 
Who gave me the Sabhall ; 
He shall be thereafter 
Heavenly, splendid, most famous, &c." 

There is a Modichu, of the race of Brian, son of Eochaidh 
Muighmhedhoin, and it may be that he is the same as Dichu, 1 
as some understand.

BANBAN, sage. 1 





COMHGALL, Abbot of Bennchor-Uladh. He is of the race of Irial, 
son of Conall Cearnach. A man full of the grace of God and 
of His love was this man. A man who fostered and educated 
very many other saints, as he kindled and lighted up an un 
quenchable fire of the love of God in their hearts, and in their 
minds, as is evident in the old books of Erin. Cuimin, of 
Condoire, says that it was every Sunday only that Comhgall 
used to eat food. Thus, he says, in the poem which begins 
" Patrick of the fort of Macha loves," &c. : 

" Comhgall, head of Uladh, loves, 

Noble is every name that he named, 
A blessing on the body of the sage, 
Every Sunday he used to eat." 

The Life of Ciaran, of Cluain, states, that the order of Comh 
gall was one of the eight orders that were in Erin. 

A very old vellum book, which is already referred to at 

MS. l)abri.ccin), is the same whom the Mart, of Tamlacht calls " Dabrecog, of Tuam-

Carthach was another name for him. It was he that had the 
famous congregation consisting of seven hundred and ten per 
sons, when he was abbot at Raithin ; an angel used to address 
every third man of them. Cuimin, of Condeire, in the poem 
beginning, " Patrick of the fort of Macha loves," states that 
no one that ever lived before him had shed half as many tears. 
Thus he says : 

"Mochuda loves the piety; 

Famous is every story of his stories ; 
Before him no one had shed 
Half what he shed of tears."

BRENAINN, Abbot, of Cluain-ferta-Brenainn. He was of the race 
of Ciar, son of Fergus, son of Ros, son of Rudhraighe. On a 
certain day, as Brenainn was at Cluain-ferta in his church, after 
preaching and the mass, fourteen years before his death, he saw 
a wonderful bird coming in at the window, so that it perched 
on the altar, and Brenainn was not able to look at it in conse 
quence of the sun-like radiance that was around it. " Salute us, 
O Cleric," said the bird. " May God salute thee," said Brenainn. 
"Who art thou?" said the Cleric. "I am Michael, the archangel, 
whom God hath sent to thee, to address thee and to make har 
mony for thee." "Thanks be to Him," said Brenainn, "thou 
art welcome to me." The bird placed its bill behind the feathers 
of its wing, and sweeter than the music of the world was the 
music which it made. 1 Brenainn was listening to it for twenty- 
four hours, and the angel took his leave of him afterwards. 
From that hour until his death Brenainn did not listen to any 
worldly music whatever, except only one Easter day when he 
permitted a clerical student of his people to play his harp for 
him; he gave his blessing to the clerical student afterwards. 
What he used to do, when he heard any worldly music, was to

1 East of Leinster. The manuscript copy has icqttefi Lcdgeri, west of Leinster, which 
is manifestly a blunder ; because Inis Baithin, now Ennisboyne, is situated in the parish 
of Dunganstown, at the extreme east of the county of Wicklow. (Ordnance Survey, 
Wicklow, s. 31.) The same error is repeated, under Baoithin, at the 22nd of this month, 
p. 130, infra. (R.) 


put two wax balls, which he carried with, him, into his ears, 
that he might not hear any music except the music of the 
people of heaven. This is the Brenaiim who forsook his patri 
mony, his friends, and relatives, and who went upon a pilgrim 
age upon the western sea, so that he was seven years upon the 
sea, as his own "Navigation," and his Life relate, AD. 576, 
when he died. 

The Life of Ciaran, of Cluain, states, chap. 47, that the order 
of Brenainn was one of the eight orders that were in Erin ; but 
it is possible that it may be of Brenainn, of Birra, or of some 
other of the same name it speaks ; for it says only Brenainn. 
Cuimin of Condeire cecinii: 

" Brenainn loves constant piety, 

According to the synod and congregation ; 
Seven years on a whale s back he spent ; 
It was a difficult mode of piety." 

A very ancient old vellum book, which we have mentioned at 
" Brighit," 1st Febr., states that Brenainn, of Cluain-ferta, was 
like Thomas the Apostle in manners and life.

FIODHMTJINE, i.e., Ua Suanaigh, anchorite of Raithin, and of Inis

of the race of Dathi, son of Fiachra, son of Eochaidh Muigh- 
mheadhoin ; and Ferbla, daughter of Dioma Dubh, son of 
Senach, of the race of Dathi, son of Fiachra, was his mother. 
Anno 3 -- . 

DUTHRACHT, of Liathdruim. I think that this is Durthacht, son 
of Trichim, of Caon-druim, brother of Dichu son of Trichem, of 
Sabhall, who is of the race of Fiatach Finn, monarch of Erin ; 
and I suppose that it is at Teamhair or near Teamhair he is, 4 
for Liath-druim and Druim-caoin are names of Teamhair. 

756. This is the date in the Annals of Ulster. The Four Masters record his 
death at 750. (R.)

4 He is: i.e., is buried or venerated. (T.)

RONAN FINN, of Lann Ronain Finn, in Ui Eachach Uladh. He 
is of the race of Colla-da-chrioch, according to the poem which 
is called Naemhshenchus of the Saints of Inis Fail. This is the 
Ronan who cursed Suibhne, son of Colman Cuar, king of Dal 
Araidhe ; because Suibhne had dragged the saint dishonorably 
from the place where he was praising God, out of the church, 
and he cast his Psalter into a pool of water where it was 
drowned, and he did not permit him to remain in the church, 
&c. For this reason Suibhne ran mad and frantic, as the Buile 
Shuibhne 1 itself relates. The mother of Ronan, and the mother 
of Fionnchu, of Bri Gobhann, were two sisters of each other.

both evidently relate to the same individual ; Egbert or Eagberct appears in the Roman 
Martyrology, 24 April. He died in Hy, A.D. 729, and is frequently mentioned by Bede. 
But as he was not son of Ossa, it would seem that Ecfrit or Ecgbrit, son of Ossa, may 
have been intended. It is difficult, however, to understand how he came to be regarded 
as a saint. The Mart, of Tamlaght is probably in error in making him "son of Ossa." 
See Reeves s Adwnnan, pp. xlv., 186. (T.) According to Ven. Bede, king Ecgfrid, son 
of Oswy, fell on the 13th of the Calends of June, or the 20th of May, as Tighemach and

l They say. This paragraph in brackets has been inserted by the more recent hand. On 
the lower margin of the page is written, in a different hand, mj m6)\ i n^tenn -oct Loca 
umoj, "great ice on Glenndaloch to-day." (T.) 


[They say 1 that there fell there, though wonderful, but one 
woman, who was found on the morrow on the margin of the 
lough without her own knowledge of where she fell from, or 
where she was. There is room for three persons in his bed, 
which is in a dangerous precipice. They say that the lake drains 
in its middle, and that a frightful serpent is seen in it, and that 
from fear of it no one ever durst swim in the lake. His life, in 
Irish, is in the possession of Domhnall Carrach, son of Ferghal 
MacEochadha, at Eanach-mor, in Ui Ceinnsellaigh. There are 
two lakes here between difficult mountains, about twenty miles 
from Ath-cliath, in the county of Cill-Manntain.] 

Cuimin, of Condoire, says, in the poem " Patrick of the fort 
of Macha loves," that Caoimhghin was constantly in a narrow 
crib to defend himself against the devil. Thus he says : 
" Caoimhghin loves a narrow hovel, 

It was a work of religious mortification 

To be constantly standing, 

It was a great shelter against demons." 

GLUNSALACH, a famous outlaw, who was on the highway of Midh- 
luachair for a long time committing all sorts of injuries, resolved 
in his mind to turn from his misdeeds, and he went to Caoimghin 
and made his confession to him, and afterwards remained with 
him till his death, so that he was sanctified, and was buried 
with Caoimghin in his church ; thus he went to heaven, on 
account of his great services to God, and this is his festival. 
This may be Glunsalach, son of Costamhail, of Sliabh Fuaid, 
and he is of the race of Irial, son of Conall Cearnach. 

BRANDUBH, Bishop. This may be Brandubh the Bishop, son of

S. Medran, here mentioned, is more probably the same who is commemorated on the 8th 
of this month. (T.) 

2 Gloss. The paragraph here given within brackets is added by the more recent hand. 
The two names, Colman and Mocholmog, are the same; for Mocolmog is the Irish devo

Colman, and Columban, are diminutives of Colum, and equivalent to Colum-og. The glos*

Conall Cearnach.

4 Maichten. The more recent hand notes here: "Medranus jtixta S. Aenese Martyrol.,"

1 Colum Cille, In the margin there is this note, in the more recent hand: " Natus est 
7 Decembris an. 520, ex Vita S. Boetii episcopi ; in Hibernia vixil 42 annos, Hiam pro- 



COLUM CILLE, * son of Felim, Abbot of Black Monks, at Doire 
Choluim Chille and at I, in Albain. Crimhthann was his first 
name ; and he was called Colum from his similarity to the bird 
which is called the dove, from his mildness and gentleness. 
The reason that he is named Of the cill [or church] is, because 
he was fostered at Cill-mic-Nenain, in Cinel Conail, in his own 
patrimonial land. On the seventh day of the month of Decem 
ber he was born at Gartan, in Cinel Conaill aforesaid, A.D. 520. 
He spent two score and two years of his life in Erin dissemi 
nating religion, piety, and good deeds ; in preaching and teach 
ing the word of God ; healing every disease and every distemper 
(as is evident from the book which contains his life) ; founding 
many monasteries and churches throughout Erin, as at Doire, 
Rathboth, Senglenn, Torach, Cill-mic-Nenain, Druim Tuama, 
Gartan, Tulach-Dubhghlaisi, Baile Meg-Robhartaigh, in Cinel 
Conaill; and at Druim-cliabh in Cairbre Droma-cliabh, and 
Serin in Connacht; Serin in Meath, Cenannas, Dermagh, Surd, 
Maein, and many other churches throughout Erin. He after 
wards went to Albain on a pilgrimage, and dwelt on the island 
which is called I Coluim Cille, and this place was offered to 
him, and many other churches. And he did more service in 
Albain for the love of the Lord than in Erin, though he did 
much good there also ; for it was he that brought them 2 from 
the darkness of paganism and of sin to the light of faith and 
good deeds. And he spent thirty-four years of his life in that 
country serving God, until he went to Heaven on Sunday night 
exactly, after completing his seventy-sixth year. His body was 
brought to Erin after his death, so that it was buried with 
honour and great veneration in one tomb with Saint Patrick and 
with Saint Brighit, at Dun-da-lethghlas in Ulster. For these 
are the three chief patrons of Erin : Patrick, Colum Cille, and 

fectus an. 5B5, ibi post 34 obiit, an. 598, aetat. 76." But these numbers are not quite 
consistent. (T.)

i Deeds. The text of this poem, as given by Dr. Kelly, reads an oiticyie, "in his 
pilgrimage :" a copy in the Brussels MS. has, na naoimpefu;, "of the holy deeds." (T.) 

*A.D. 599. This an error. The date in the Annals of the Four Masters, which this 
Calendar generally follows, is 592 ; that in the Annals of Ulster, 594; that in Tighernach, 
596; but 597 is the true year. See Reeves s Adamnan, p. 309. (R.) 

3 Erin. There is a defect here in the MS- (T.) 


Brighit. And Colum Cille was of the noble races of Erin, i.e., 
his father was of the race of Conall Gulban, son of Niall of the 
Nine Hostages. Eithne, daughter of Dioma, son of Noe, of 
Leinster, of the race of Cathaoir Mor, king of Erin, was his 
mother ; and what some people say, that his mother was the 
daughter of Mac Consnamha, is not true, for there were several 
hundred years from the birth of Colum Cille to the time that 
O Ruairc had his name, from whom Mac Consnamha is de 

Cuimin, of Condeire, says, in the poem beginning " Patrick 
of the fort of Macha loves," that Colum Cille used not to take 
of food during the week as much as would satisfy a poor man 
for one meal. Thus he says :- 

"The holy Colum Cille loves : 

Son of Feidhlimidh, of generous deeds, 1 
There went not for a week into his body 
What would satisfy a poor man one turn." 

It was A.D. 599 2 when he resigned his spirit. 
" Three years was he without light, 
Colum in his Duibh-regles. 
He went with angels out of his earthly prison 
After six years and seventy." 

A very ancient old-vellum-book, in which is found the Mar- 
tyrology of Tamhlacht-Maoilruain and the Irish saints of the 
same name, states, that Colum Cille was like unto Andrew the 
Apostle in his habits and life. 

The Life of Ciaran, of Cluain, chap. 47, states that the Order 
of Colum Cille was one of the eight orders that were in Erin. 3 
Colum himself it is they 

[Mochta, 4 of Lughmhadh, predicted Colum Cille two hundred 
years before his birth. 5 

4 Mochta. The whole of this long passage, within brackets, on the predictions of 
Colum Cille s birth, is a separate insertion, on a loose sheet of paper, in the MS. : but in 
O Clery s hand. It belongs most probably to the festival of the Nativity of Colum Cille 
(7 Dec.) ; but Mr. Curry, in his transcript of the MS., placed it here. (T.) 

" Birth. There is another defect in the MS. here, the paper having been torn. The

number, 200 years, is an obvious mistake ; for St. Mochta being, as his life states, a disciple 
of St. Patrick, could not have prophesied 200 years before the birth of Colum Cille. St. 
Cuimin (Vit. S. Columbae, c. 2,) says GO. See Colgan, Actt. SS. p. 733 ; Reeves, Adamnan, 
p. 6; and compare what is said of St. Mochta in this Mart, at 19 Aug. (T.) 

1 Chap. 2. The Life of St. Columba here referred to is that in Irish by Manus O Don- 
nrll, which i.s not parted into chapters in the original, but which is arbitrarily divided 
both by the O Clerys and Colgan, though in different proportions. What is here assigned 


Patrick foretold him at Sith-Aodha when he was blessing 
Conall Gulban, and Fergus, his son. When he placed his right 
hand on the head of Fergus over across Conall, Conall asked 
him why he did so. Patrick replied : " Fergus shall have a 
son s son, said he, and Colum Cille shall be his name, and it is 
in honour of him I put my right hand on the head of Fergus, 
because that son is nearer to him by a generation than to thee ; 
and this son shall be pleasing to God and men. A son shall be 
born of his race, &c." Life of Colum Cille, chap. 2. 1 Patrick 
foretold Colum Cille at another place before his birth. After 
being at Domhnaeh Mor Maighe Ithe, in Cinel Conaill, he went 
in his chariot the next day to the stream which is called Daol 
to bless the country, and on coming to the brink of the ford, 
the spindles 2 of the chariot which was under him were broken, 
and as often as they were mended, when Patrick went into the 
chariot they broke again. And all marvelled at this thing. Do 
not wonder, said Patrick, through the spirit of prophecy, for 
that land from the stream northwards does not stand in need of 
my blessing, for a son shall be born there, and Colum Cille 
shall be his name, and it is he that shah 1 bless the land to the 
north, and it is in honour of him that God has prohibited my 
blessing the land. Ath-an-Charpaid, 3 on the Daol, is the name 
of that ford. The Life of Colum Cille, chap. 2, states that 
Patrick predicted Colum Cille when he was at the Boyle, when 
he blessed the river and its fish, and he said that a son of eternal 
life would come, i.e., Colum Cille, and that he would found a 
noble church at Eas mic n-Eirc. Patrick foretold the birth of 
Colum Cille one time that he came to Eas Ruaidh, and he 
blessed the south side of the cataract, and said that it was for 

to chap. 2, is in Colgan numbered chapters 4 to 7. (Trias Thaum., p. 390 a). The order 
of the predictions is the same in the Life as here. (R-) 

2 Spindles. Colgan renders it axis, in the singular (cap. 5, p. 390 a). The term 
peififci used in the text is, however, the plural of peayvpac, which signified a spindle, 
and is in a secondary sense applied to the sand-bank at a ford or estuary. See O Donovan s 
note on the Four Masters, AC. 665, vol. i., p. 278. The idea of axle-trees, in the plural, 
would imply the use of a four-wheeled conveyance. (R.) 
3 Ath-an-Charpaid: i.e., ford of the chariot. (T.)

Colum Cille lie left a want of blessing on the north, and this 
was fulfilled. 

The Life of Colum Cille, chap. 3, 1 states that St. Martin, at 
the time of his death, foretold the birth of Colum Cille, for he 
requested that his book should be placed on his breast in the 
tomb, and that a holy and blessed son should come from Erin 
after a time, half whose name would be called from the bird 
whose figure John saw descending on Jesus at the stream of 
Jordan, and the other half from the church that he should come 
hither at the end of 1 00 years ; and he shall open my tomb, said 
Martin, and God will preserve my book for him without stain, 
without darkness, and he shall bring it to Erin, and Martin s 
Gospel shall be its name in Erin afterwards. The Life of Colum 
Cille, chap. 62, 2 agrees with this, i.e., that he proceeded to the 
place where Martin was, and that he brought away the Gospel 
of Martin with him. 

St. Brighit also foretold Colum Cille, Life of Colum Cille, 
chap. 4, 3 when she delivered a prophecy: that a young scion 
would be born in the northern parts, and that it would become

" The son of long-sided Eithne, 

He is surely beautiful, he is blooming, 

Colum Cille, pure without blemish,

Bishop Eoghan, of Ard-sratha, foretold the coming of Colum, 
chap. 9. 2 

foretold. 3 

The Life of Colum (Cille), chap. II, 4 states that the celebrated 
prophet, Finn Mac Cumhaill, foretold him when he let the cele 
brated hound, Bran, after the wild stag, and he followed him to 
the river of Sen-ghleann Choluim Cille, but he did not follow 
him over across the river ; it was then Finn foretold the birth 
of Colum Cille, from whom that valley would be named, and 
that he would bless many places in Erin and Albain. And 
Bealach-damhain 5 is the name of that place from that forth. 

It was revealed to Fedlim Keachtmhar, monarch of Erin, the 
thirteenth ascending generation before Colum Cille, that a Colum 
Cille would be born who would be of his race, &c. 

The Druids of Conall Gulban predicted the birth of Colum 
Cille before his birth, chap. 13. 

The Life of Colum Cille, chap. 14, 7 states that Eithne, the 
mother of Colum Cille, saw a vision, i.e., that a large cloak was 
given to her, and that it spread over Erin and Albain, &c. 

The 15th chapter 8 of the Life of Colum CiUe states, that St. 
Adamnan observes that an angel of God had revealed himself at 
another time to Eithne, and that he showed her a towel in which 
there were various and many colours, and the goodly odour of 
every sweet-smelling thing on it, &c. And he took away the 
towel with him again, and it appeared to Eithne that it spread 
over Erin and Albain, and over the west of the world, &c. 

A woman who bore grudge and envy to Eithne saw a vision, 
viz., that the birds and fowls of the air carried the bowels of 
Eithne throughout the territories of Erin and Albain, and Eithne

3 Barn. These verses are attributed to St. Mura, of Fathain, (see March 12,) by 


herself delivered the true interpretation of that dream. Life 
of Colum Cille, chap. 16. 1 

The Life of Colum Cille, chap. 17, 2 states that St. Finne n saw 
another vision, viz., it appeared to him that two moons rose in 
the sky, viz., a moon of gold and a moon of silver ; and the 
moon of gold rose in the north side of Erin, and lighted Erin, 
Albain, and the west of the world, with its brilliance and ra 
diance, &c. ; and the moon of silver rose over Cluain-mic-Nois, 
and lighted the middle of Erin with its brilliance and radiance ; 
and Finnen, of Cluain-Eraird, himself delivered the interpreta 
tion of the dream, viz., that the wife of Feidhlim, son of Fergus 
Cennfoda, son of Conall Gulban, son of Niall of the Nine Host 
ages, would bring forth a son, and that his name would be 
Colum Cille, and that the fame of his exemplary piety and the 
brightness of his angelic life, his purity, his wisdom, his know 
ledge, his word, and his preaching, would extend over all the 
west of the world ; and that Ciaran, son of the carpenter, would 
be the silver moon, on account of his virtues and good deeds, &c. 
As the birth of Colum Cille had been foretold and prefigured, 
it is so it came to pass, for he was born, at the time when it 
was God s will, i.e., on the 7th day of the month of December, 
in the year of the age of Christ, 520 ; and the place where he 
was born was Gartan, in Cinel Conaill. At Tulach-dubhghlaisi, 
in the same Cinel Conaill, he was baptized, and at Cill-mic- 
Nenain he was nursed, as in the quatrain which Mura composed, 
and which is found in the twenty-first chapter of the Life of 
Colum Cille. This is the quatrain: 

" He was born 3 at Gartan by permission of God ; 

He was nursed at Cill-mic-Nenain ; 

This son of beauty was baptized 

At the godly Tulaeh-dubhghlaisi." 

Crimthann was his name at first. And Crimthann is the 
same as fox in the hard Gaelic, and it was not the will of God

that this name should be upon him; and it seemed to God that 
it was not meet that this name should be upon him, so that lie 
put it into the hearts and minds of the youths who were wont 
to play and sport with him to call him Colum. Or it was the 
angels of God himself that he sent to them to tell them to call 
him Colum, as St. Mura says in these verses : 
" Colum Cille, a name from heaven, 

The son of Feidhlim among angels, 

Without mistake, blunder, or blemish, 

Crimthann was his name in the world. 
" On Thursday, it was no wrong cause 

With the angels of the King of heaven, 

They deprived him of the name Crimthann, 

And called him Colum Cille." 

And as the boy was a nursing at a church-town which was 
near them, i.e., Doire Eithne, which is at this day called Cill- 
Mic-Nenain, his fosterers used to call him Colum of the 1 . . . ] 
BAOITHIN, abbot of I-Coluim-Cille, next after Colum Cille himself; 
and Tech Baoithin in Cinel Conaill was his chief church, for he 
was of the race of Conall Gulban. It was to this Baoithin it 
was permitted to see the three grand chairs in heaven empty, 
awaiting some of the saints of Erin, viz., a chair of gold, and a 
chair of silver, and a chair of glass, and he told Colum Cille at 
I the vision which was shown unto him ; for he used to be 
always along with Colum Cille, for they were close in consan 
guinity and friendship, i.e., they were the sons of two brothers. 
It was then Colum Cille gave the interpretation to him of 
the thing which he had seen, for he was a famous prophet, so 
that he said then : The chair of gold which thou hast seen is 
the chair of Ciaran, son of the carpenter, the reward of his 
sanctity, and hospitality, and charity. The chair of silver which 
thou hast seen is thine own chair, for the brightness and efful 
gence of thy piety. The chair of glass is my own chair, for 
although I am pure and bright, I am brittle and fragile, in con-

sequence of the battles which were fought on my account. So 
that it was after this he (Colum Cille) 1 resolved upon the cele 
brated abstinence, i.e., to take nettle pottage as food for the 
future, without dripping 2 or fat whatever, so that the impres 
sion of his ribs through his woollen tunic was seen in the sandy 
beach, which is by the side of I, when lie used to lie on it at 
night. 3 

Now, Baoithin was four years in the abbacy at I after the 
death of Colum Cille, for it was from among the men of Erin 
the abbot of I was chosen ; and he was most frequently chosen 
from the men of Cinel Conaill. When he used to eat food, he 
was wont to say, "Deus in adjutorum meum intende," between 
every two morsels. When he used to be gathering corn along 
with the monks he held one hand up beseeching God, and 
another hand gathering the corn. Baoithin resigned his soul 
to heaven after the four years aforesaid, on the same clay of 
the month that Colum Cille went to Heaven, A.D. 600.

June 12, in the Cal. and Brev. of Aberdeen. The gloss on the Felire of Aengus (Leabhar 
breac) confounds him with Palladium. The suggestion that he was abbot of Bangor and 
of Tulach Foirtceirn, as well as of Drumcliffe, in the county Sligo, occurs in the gloss on 
Mar. O Gorman. Another gloss in the Felire confounds him with S. Mothoria, or Motho- 
ren (see June 9, p. 104), from which probably conies the suggestion that he was abbot of 
Drumcliffe. The text of the Felire speaks of him as a traveller, and so identifies him 
with thf Pictish bishop, Ternan, who had A isited Rome. (T.)

Avith S. Moti-ii i/iicr Unsraid, (ino of tlie >eveii sous of Aengus, son of Aedh, son of Kiv, son

MOCHUILLE, of Innsnat, in Fotharta Fea, of the race of Cairbre 
Riada, son of Conaire ; arid

Cairbre Riada, son of Conaire, son of Moghlamha. 

CAOMHAN, of Ard-Caomhain, by the side of Loch Garnian, in 
Leinster; and this is Caomhan, or Sanct-Lethan, and he had 
the same mother as Caoimhghin and Natcaeimhe, of Tir-da- 
ghlas, i.e., Caoimell, daughter of Cennfhionnan, son of Cis, son 
of Lughaidh. He was of the race of Corb Uloim, son of Fergus, 
son of Ross, son of Rudhraighe. 

CRIOSTAN, i.e., Gillachrist Ua Morgair, brother of Maelmaedhog, 
i.e., Malachias, who is of the Cinel Conaill ; and this Gillachrist 
was a bishop. 


DICHUILL, of Achadh-na-cro. 

MuRCHU. There is a Murchu of the race of Conall Cremhthainne, 
son of Niall of the Nine Hostages, and there is a Cill Murchon 
in Corann, near Cels Corann, in Connacht ; and consider whether 
this is his festival.

It was he that sprang over Luachair Deadhaidh in three leaps, 
when the spectres were in pursuit of him, for which reason he 
was called Moling Luachra, though Taircheall 1 was his first 
name. Numerous are his miracles to be recounted. 

Daircell was his first name. One night Moling . sent his 
fishermen to catch fish, and they caught a large salmon in the 
nets, and when it was split open there was found a ring of gold 
in its belly, and Moling divided the gold 2 into three parts ; one- 
third he gave to the poor, and one-third to cover reliquaries, 
and the other third to do labours and works, 3 &c., A.D. 696.

23 F. NONO KAL. JULII. 23. 

MocHAOl, Abbot of n-Aondruim, in Uladh. Caolan was his first 
name. Bronach, daughter of Miliuc, son of Buan, with whom 
Patrick was in captivity, was his mother. He went with seven 
score young men to cut wattles to make a church. He himself 
was engaged at the work, and cutting timber like the rest. He 
had his load ready before the others, and he kept it by his side. 
As he was so, he heard a bright bird singing on the blackthorn 
near him. He was more beautiful than the birds of the world, 
And the bird said : " This is diligent work, O Cleric," said he. 
" This is required of us in building a church of God," said Mo- 
chaoi. "Who is addressing me?" said Mochaoi. "A man of 
the people of my Lord is here," said he, "i.e., an angel of God 
from Heaven." " Hail to thee," said Mochaoi, " and wherefore 
hast thou come hither ?" " To address thee from thy Lord, and 
to amuse thee for a while." " I like this," said Mochaoi. He 
afterwards fixed his beak in the feathers of his wing. Three 
hundred years did Mochaoi remain listening to him, having his 
bundle of sticks by his side in the middle of the wood, and the 
wood was not the more withered, and the time did not seem to 
him longer than one hour of the day. The angel afterwards 
bade him farewell. He went then to the church having his 
wattles with him, and he saw an oratory in the church which 
had been erected for his soul by his people. He wondered at 
the church which he saw. He went then to the residence, and 
none of them knew each other, until he himself told his stories 
to them, and how he was treated by the bird. When they 
heard this they all knelt to him ; and they made a shrine of the 
wood, and they afterwards built the church at that place, i.e., 
the place where he was listening to the bird. Of this the fol 
lowing was said: 

" A sleep without decay of the body, 
Mochaoi of Aendruim slept : 

Of the people of the congregation where the sage was, 
He did not find hut the descendants. 1

GAIBHREIN. The Life of Mochua, of Balla, states, chap. 6, that 
when Mochua left Bennchar, he proceeded to Gael, i.e., a city 
which is in Fir-Rois, and Gabhrin, a bishop of the Britons, was 
there, and that he offered the church to Mochua, for they were 
fellow-students of each other ; and I think that this is the same

LAICHTEIN. There is another Laichten on the first day of May, 1 
and it is likely that it is from one of them that Lis-Laichtin, 
in Munster, is named, where there is a monastery of St. Francis 
at this time ; and whichever of them was in Munster, Cuimin, of 
Condeire, says that he used to be always standing, praying for 
the men of Munster, and sheltering them. Thus he says 2 : 
" Laichtin, the champion, loved 

Humility, and whoever was humble ; 

Standing continually, 

He used to be sheltering the men of Munster."

CRUIMMIN, Bishop, in Lecain of Meath, i.e., in Ui-Mac-Uais. 

Darerca, sister of Patrick, was his mother. The age of this 
saint was great, as is proved by this quatrain : 

" Three score years thrice over 

Was the age of the pious Cruimmin ; 

Without infection, without disease, he changed colour, 

After mass, after celebration." 

Crummaine, of Lecain, was the son of Corbmac, son of Baedan, 
of the race of Tadhg, son of Cian, son of Oilioll Olum, and 
Darerca, the sister of Patrick, was his mother. 

1 August, where a Laichtein is commemorated. The Lachtain of 19 March belonged to 
Ossory, and therefore was a Leinster saint. (R.)

1 Took a girdle. This phrase seems equivalent to the modern one of " taking the veil." 
In the next line, for (robeifiim, Dr. Kelly s copy reads -DO cUmum, "what I know is 
what I hear." Calendar, p. 163. The Mart. Taml. adds that her first name was Darerca. 
(T.) The monastic girdle is frequently mentioned in the lives of the Irish saints, as in 
those of St. Brigid (Feb. 1), St. Column (Feh. 3), St. Mochta (Aug. 19), St. Mobhi (Oct. 
12), &c. (R.) 


Cuimin, of Conneire, states, in the poem which begins " Patrick 
of the fort of Macha loves/ that she never ate a sufficiency, 
and that she never took a dinner. Thus he says : 
" Since she took a girdle 1 about her body, 

It is after knowing it I state it, 

She ate not a full or sufficient meal,

Brocseach was the name of his mother. 

Mainnsena, 3 the mother of Brenainn, of Biorr, came to Saighir, 
and she was desirous of going to the island of Doimhle ; " Go 
not," said Ciaran, of Saighir, "but it is in Tamhlacht thy own

2 Inde error. It is not very clear what the error was to which our author here alludes. 
He probably meant the error in the name. He does not, however, quote the Mart. Rom. 
correctly ; perhaps for " Colmanus et Colonatus," we should read, " Colmanus vel Colo- 
twtus." The names given in the Mart. Rom. are Chiliamt*, bishop, "una cum sociis

printed in the Rev. M. Kelly s Calendar, (p. 1G8) :

He plunged it into the pond. 
This, according to Professor O Cuiry, is a liolter reading. (R-) 


24. B. NONO KAL. AUGUSTI. 24. 

DECCLAN, of Ard-mor, son of Ere, son of Maicniadh, Bishop and 
Confessor. He was of the race of Eochaidh Finn Fuathairt, 
from whom Brighit descended, and Deitsin was the name of his 
mother. Colman, a holy bishop, baptized him. Life of Declan, 
chap. 3. 

On one occasion, as he was coming from Rome, he forgot a 
bell (which had been sent him from Heaven,) upon a rock 
which was in the port, and the rock swam after him, so that it 
arrived before the ship in Erin, and Declan said that where the 
rock should touch land, there God would permit him to erect 
a church, and this was afterwards fulfilled. This church is 
situated in Deisi of Munster, where he performed many signs 
and miracles. 

MOBHEOG, of Termonn, Abbot. The king of Britain, i.e., Brachan, 
son of Brachameoc, was his father, and the father of Mogorog, 
of Sruthar ; and Dina, daughter of the king of Saxonland, was 
his mother. Cuimin, of Condeire, states, in the poem beginning, 
" Patrick of the fort of Macha loves," that he was in the habit 
of placing his head constantly in a pit or pool of water. Thus 
he says : 

" The victorious Mobheog loves, 

According to the synod of the learned, 

Often to bow his head, 

To dip 1 his head into a pit [of water."]

NESSAN, Deacon, of Mungairit, in Munster, When Patrick was 
blessing Munster he blessed Deacon Nessan, as appears in the 
Life of Patrick. 2 It is of him Cuimin, of Coindeire, gave this 
testimony, in showing that he never told a lie out of his mouth. 
Thus he says : 

" Nessan, the holy deacon, loves 
Angelic pure devotion ; 
Never came outside his teeth 
What was untrue or guileful." 

A very ancient old- vellum-book, of which we have spoken 
at Febr. 1 st, at Brighit, states that the Deacon Nessan was like 
to Laurentius the Deacon, in his habits and life.

1 Bishop. The note within brackets is added by the second hand ; it is evidently taken 
from the Gloss in Mar. O Gorman. (T.) 

Brachameoc. This name is Bracha in the MS. The last syllable has been supplied by 
Mr. Curry, as having been evidently intended. (T.) 

8 Celsus. This name and the next, with the authorities annexed, are in the second 
hand. (T.) 

4 Bite. This entry is in the second hand. Mar. O Gorman calls him Bute or perhaps 
Byte. (T.) 

5 Goll. The more recent hand adds here, " gutbtiin gtnftr. M. Tarn." But the full 
entry in the M. Taml. is, Cobariccqi, ^ulbam ?;ui|ir, mic .Ti- Saifib: "Cobarchar, of

Laeghaire, son of Niall. 
COBUIR, son of Goll. 5 

Gulban-gort, son of Garbh." In Mar. O Gorman we read, Cobaiyi mac 
which a marginal note in the Brussels MS. explains thus, " gefimcm Cobccifi forte 
Auxilius, ^efirnun Germanus." Meaning that the text is to be translated " Cobair, son 
of Goll, a German," and that Cobair (which signifies aid, help, in Irish,) is, perhaps, a 
Celtic form of the name Auxilius. But it is probable that German is a mistake, or else the 
name of another saint. So the M. Tainl. seems to have understood it, for we find there 
^ep/man mac gtnU, distinguished from Cobair. In the Roman Mart., Germanus, bishop 
of Auxerre, is commemorated on this day, but in Mar. O Gorman on the day following. 
This may, perhaps, have caused the confusion. At the end of this day the more recent 
hand adds, "^eyiman, mac ^tnU,. M. Tarn, et Marian. 1 (T.)

3 The sons. The clause within brackets is added by the more recent hand, with the

occurs in the margin : " Follaman, Papanus, lernocus, et Natalis sunt filii Aengusii regis

COLMAN, Bishop, son of Dairine, i.e., the son of Aenghus, son of 
Natfraech, son of Core, son of Lughaidh, king of Munster. 
Sant was the name of his mother. The reason why he was 
called Colman, son of Dairine, is because she, DaTine, was 
his mother Sant s sister, and she was barren, for she bore no 
children, and she asked for Colman, when a child, from her 
sister, that he might be named from her ; and Sant gave the 
boy to Dairine to be nursed ; and hence he is called Colman, 
son of Dairine .

Sentreibh, i.e., Santry, County Dublin. (T.) 

6 Ann. This paragraph is added by the second hand. It is difficult to say whence it 
was taken, or to whom it relates, unless Erentrude, sister of St. Rudbert, of Saltzbourg, 
be intended, whose festival is 30 June. See Colgan, Actt. SS., p. 701, note 3, 4, and p.

of the race of Mesincorb, of Leinster.

his mother.

here by mistake, instead of Sept. 3, on which day he is commemorated in the Roman 
Martyrology. (T.)

MOLUA, son of Oche, Abbot, of Cluain-ferta-Molua, and of Sliabh

that was confessor 1 to David of Cill-muine, to Maedhog, to 
Mochaemhog, and to Comhgall, according to this quatrain : 
" Molua was confessor 

To David, across the tranquil sea, 
And to Maedhog, and Mochaemhog, 
And to Comhgall." 

Sochla was the name of his mother. It was of some Molua, 
" among those of the same name, that Cuimin, of Coindeire, gives 
the character, that he used to do the desire and bidding of his 
tutor or master, as he did that of his father and mother, and of 
every one together, with penance for his sins. Thus he says : 
" Molua, the fully miraculous, 2 loves 
Humility, noble, pure, 

The will of his tutor, the will of his parents, 
The will of all, and weeping for his sins."

1 Crulmlitlier. This word signifies priest. See above, p. 1 65, note 5. (T.) 

2 Novemdecem. These Latin words arc in the more recent hand, and not in Irish cha 
racters. They arc intended to apply to the nineteen following names, including the four 
sons of Ercan, and the four sons of Dioman. (T.) The writer, by the clause qua Cathe 
dralis sedes est, identifies Cill-mor-dithruibh with Kilmorc in the county of Cavan; but 
this is a serious blunder, for the former is a church in the County of Roscommon and 
diocese of Elphin, (see Keeves s Adamnan, p. 90) ; whereas the latter gives name to a dis 
tinct diocese, and has St. Fedhlimidh, who is < ommemorated at the 3rd of August (see p. 
208, v/pra, ) as it? patron. (K.) 



CRUIMHTHER 1 NATHI, of Achadh-caoin-Conaire, in Luighne of 
Connacht ; and he was of the Luighne of Connacht. 

Novemdecem 2 Sancti Kilmorenses (quce Cathedralis sedes

THE FOUR SONS OF DIOMAN. All these were of Cill-m6r Dithruibh, 

except Cruimther Nathi [and also 4 Cruimther Biagan, but this 

is not certain]. 
COLMAN, son of Baoth, of Druim-rath 5 . 


CUIMMIN, Abbot, of Druim-bo, in Uladh. 

BLAAN, Bishop, of Ceann-garadh, in Gall Ghaoidhelu. Dubblaan 6 
was his chief city. 

3 Patron. The words within brackets are in the more recent hand. (T.) 

4 And also. This is also in the second hand. The whole of this paragraph about the 
saints of Kilmore must have been written before the Latin heading given above. (T.) 

6 Druim-rath. The more recent hand adds here, in italic characters, " Romanus. Mar." 
See the Roman Mart, at this day. (T.) 

6 Dulblaan. Probably an error of the MS. for Dun-blaan. (T.) The gloss in Marianu.- 
also reads Dubblaan, while that on Aengus has Dum-Blaan^ a form which is found in main- 
Scotch authorities. (R.)

2 Name. The more recent hand adds, " Potius S. Ailbeo ut constet ex ejns vita,* 
meaning that Macrridhe was rather the pupil and adopted son of St. Ailbe, and not of St. 
Mochta of Loiith. (T.)

because he was a dear pupil of his. Aenghus was his first name. 2 

ATHRACHT, Virgin, daughter of Tighernach, of Cill-saile, in Crich- 
Conaill. 3 

DONNAN. It is probable that this was Donnan the deacon, son of 
Beoaidh, brother of Ciaran, of Cluain-mic-[Nois. 4 ] There is a 
Beoaidh, of the race of Core, son of Fergus, son of Ross, son of 
Rudhraighe. Donnan was at Cluain-mic-Nois along with Ciaran, 
as the History of the Saints states. 


BEIGHIN, son of Fachtna, abbot, of la-Coluim Cille, A.D. 651, 8 when 

he resigned his spirit.

4 Nois. Omitted in the text by an obvious error of the scribe. (T.)

loth of this month, and from Aedh or Moaedhog of Ferns, Jan. 31. (T.) 

3 Midhaiyhre. This name is added by the more recent hand, quoting " Mar" as autho 
rity. But Mar. O Gorman, at least in Mr. Curry s copy of the Brussels MS., mentions 
not " Midhaighre," but meic Daiyre, i.e., "the sons of Daigre." There is, therefore, some 
f-onfusion. (T.) It is evidently an error for meic "Dcojyie, and a blundering anticipation 
of HIP rp.i meic T)mj:;hfie, four linos louver down. (R.)

1 Linn- Uachaille. The more recent hand has written here the following note : " An 
idem et Hieron Mart. Holland, no erne an c&yinctn -pojf crca ann, quasi diminutivum 
ab Heronn. Ferreolus, undo leronn juxta Adamnan," which may be translated "Is he 
the same as Hieron, a martyr of Holland? or is the name that is here, Ermn, a sort of 
diminutive from Heronn, Ferreolus. unde leronn according to Adamnan." We have 
here two suggestions : first, that the Temhnen here mentioned may be St. Hieron, a priest, 
who was martyred by the Norsemen in 850, and is commemorated on this day in Holland ; 
or that the name is Ernan, a diminutive from lei n, iron, the same name which is Latinized 
Ferreohts by Adamnan (iii. 23, Reeves, p. 237.) But the Felire of Aengus gives on thi* 
day ll the death of Teimnen, the monk;" and the Scholiast adds, "he was a martyr from 


" Aedli was his name in reality, 

Grandson of Aithmet, good was his deed, 

True brother, after victory with fame., 

To Maelruain, our teacher." 
" Fer-da-chrioch was his name at first, 

I will tell you his history : 

His name at Clochar was sweet, 

After that, Bishop MacCairthinn." 

Bishop MacCairthinn was champion to Patrick, and he used 
to carry him over every rugged place. We find the pedigree of 
Aedh, Bishop MacCairthinn, of Clochar traced to Eochaidh, son 
of Muiredach, and from Eochaidh to Heremon. 





DEGHA, Bishop. 



TEMHNEN, Monk and Martyr, of Linn-Uachaille. ! 

EoiN, son of Carlan, of Tigh-Eoin, in Uladh. 

BECCAN. This may be Beccan, son of Saran, who is of the race of 

Another BECCAN. 

Linn Luachain, on the banks of the Cassan Linne." There is, therefore, no necessity to 
seek for any foreign saint. But there seems nevertheless some confusion, as we have 
already had " Temnen, of Linn Uachaille," at the 7th of Aug. It is possible that there 
may have been two of the name, and that by an error in the gloss of Mar. O Gorman, they 
are both said to be of Linn-Uachaille. In the M. Taml., at 7 Aug., we have " Temnanus 
Linn duachail," and at 17 Aug. " Temmianus monachus," which seems to indicate two 
different persons. In the text of Mar. O Gorman we have simply "Temnan" in both 
places ; but in both the gloss tells us that he was of Linn Uachaille. (T.) Concerning 
St. leron or Hieron see Molanus, Indiculus Sanctor. Belyii, p. 44 &, and the Acta Sanctorum 
at this day. (R.)

Sanctor., p. 344. (K.) 



ERNAN, of Torach, of the race of Eoghan, son of Niall. 



ERNIN, i.e., Mernog, of Rath-Noi, in Ui-Garchon, i.e., in Fotharta 

of Leinster ; and of Cill-draighnech, in Ui-Drona. 
DAIGH, son of Cairell, Bishop, of Inis-caoin-Degha, in Conaille- 
Muirtheimhne. The year of our Lord when he resigned his 
spirit, was 586. He was of the race of Eoghan, son of Niall ; and 
Deidi, daughter of Trian, son of Dubhthach Hui Lughair, was 
his mother. He was a celebrated artificer. It was he that made 
one hundred and fifty bells, one hundred croziers, and who made 
cases or covers for sixty gospels (i.e., books containing the works 
of the four Evangelists), as this quatrain proves : 
" Thrice fifty bells, victorious deed, 

With one hundred strong ringed croziers, 
With sixty perfect gospels, 
By the hand of Daigh alone." 

Berach, of Cluain Coirpthi, was his disciple. Life of Berach, 1 

chap. 7. 

COLMAN, of Cuil. 



MOCHTA, Bishop, of Lughmhagh. Three hundred years was his age, 
when he went to heaven, A.D. 534. And he never uttered a 
word of lie, or of ignorance, nor did he eat one morsel of fat, or 
that on which there was the moisture of fat, during that time. 
For which reason this account was given of him, and to show 
that there were three score seniors in his house, 2 or who did not 
perform any labour, except repeating psalms and prayers : 

2 In his house. That is, who abode continually within the conventual precincts, as 
contradistinguished from those who were engaged in manual labour in the field*. (R-)

1 The teeth of Mochta. Colgan has quoted this poem, omitting the last quatrain, but 
inserting the following between the first and second : 

"Nifi bo T>occa mumnceifi TTlocca, 

Lugmaij ti-p! 
TI\I ce-o -pa^ariT:, tmi ce-o neppoc, 


" The teeth of Mochta, 1 of good habits, 

Three hundred years, durable the rigour, 
Without a word of error escaping from them, 
Without a bit of fat passing down them. 

" Three score psalm-singing seniors 

Were his household, royal the enumeration, 
Without tillage, reaping, or kiln-drying, 
Without work, except reading. 

" A man of three score, a man of three hundred, 
Blessed be God ! how old the set of teeth ! 
Not more has the youth under valour, 
How lasting the ancient tooth." F. 2 

Cuimin, of Coindeire, states, in the poem which begins, "Patrick, 
of the fort of Macha, loves," that Mochta was one hundred years 
without eating a bit of rich food, or fat of any kind. Thus he 
says : 

" My Mochta, of Lughmhagh, loves, 
By law and by rule, 
That no rich food should enter his body 
For a period of an hundred years." 

This Mochta 3 prophesied of Colum Cille (as stated in the Life of 
Colum Cille, chap. 1) two hundred years before Ms birth.

" Not poor was the family of Mochta, of Lughmadh s fort ! Three hundred priests, and 
a hundred bishops were with him there." Actt. SS., p. 734. (T.) 

2 F. The letter F. here indicates that the poem is completed. It is the initial letter of 
its first word, which, according to custom, is repeated at the close, as a mark of comple 
tion. (T.)

1 Lon-gnradh. A space is left after his name in the MS. to insert afterwards " priest" 
or "bishop," the author being uncertain of hi* dignity. His name was Lon or Loinun ; 
he was surnamcd Garadh, from Discrt (iaradh. in the (Jin-en s County, where he probablv 
had a cell. It is possible that he may be the same as Lonn, of Cill Gabhra, 24 June, 

See Obits and Martyrol. of I Church, p. Ixxii. (T.) 

2 Coujirm : i.e., of the white foot. (O D.) 


LON-GARADH, 1 * of Sliabh Mairge, or of Magh Tuathat. 

Lon-garadh Coisfinn, 2 of Disert Garadh, in the north of Os- 
raighe, i.e., of Magh-Garadh in Ui-Fairchellaigh, and of Cill- 
Gabhra, in Sliabh Mairge. It is said that the book-satchels of 
Erinn, and the gospels, and the lesson-books of the students, 
fell from their racks on the night of Lon-garadh s death, so that 
no person should ever understand them as Lon-garadh used to 
understand them. It was of this was said : 
" Lon died, [Lon died,] 

Garad was unfortunate; 

He is a loss to learning and schools, 

Of Erinn s isle to its extremities." 

A very ancient old- vellum-book, which we have mentioned 
under Brighit, at 1st Febr., and under Patrick, 17th March, 
states, that Lon-garadh, in his habits and life, was like to Au- 
gustin, who was very wise. 


ULTAN, [Bishop 3 ] of Ard-Brecain. He was of the race of Irial, 
son of Conall Cearnach. One of the habits of Ultan was to 
feed, with his own hands, every child who had no support in 
Erinn, so that he often had fifty and thrice fifty with him 
together, though it was difficult for him to feed them. One 
hundred and eighty-nine was his age 4 when he went to heaven, 
A.D. 65G. 5 

Cuimin, of Coindeire, also says that he had a prison of stone, 
or boards against his side, and that he used to bathe in cold 
water in a sharp wind. Thus he says : 

" Ulltan loves his children ; 
A prison for his lean side, 
And a bath in cold water 
In the sharp wind he loved." 

3 Bishop. The word eapfcop, bishop, is inserted by the more recent hand, and the, 
words " KpiiseopusMidensis" written in the margin. Obits of Chr. Cli., Introd., p. Ixxii. (T.)

It was he that collected the miracles of Brighit into one

manded him to turn them into verse, so that it was the latter

1 If is age. Tighernach says, in the 31st; the An. Ult., in the 34th year. According to 
his Life, he died in his 30th year. (R.) 

2 A.D. 548. This is the date both in the Annals of Ulster and the Four Masters. The 
true year is 540. (R.) 


MAELCOISNE. The Law of Adamnan states, that Maelcoisne was 
one of the sureties whom Adamnan found to free the women 
from every slavery and bondage that was on them. There is a 
Maelcoisne at 15th October, and a Maelcoisne of Ros-Brannaibh, 
at 28th December, and it is not known which of them the Law 
speaks of. 



ClARAN, son of the Carpenter, Abbot of Cluain-mic-Nois. Beoaidh 
was the name of the carpenter, his father. Darerca, daughter 
of Earcan, son of Buachall, son of Glas, the poet of the Ciar- 
raighe, of Irluachair, was his mother. He was of the race of 
Core, son of Fergus, son of Ross, son of Rudhraighe. On a cer 
tain day, as Ciaran was sowing seed at Iseal-Chiarain, a poor 
man came to him to ask alms of him. Ciaran threw a handful 
of the grain into his breast, and it was turned into gold imme 
diately. At this time the king, i.e., Aenghus, son of Crimthann, 
sent two horses and a chariot to Ciaran, and Ciaran gave the 
horses to the poor man for the gold, and the gold was turned 
into grain immediately, and the field was sown with it after 
wards, so that there was not in the whole territory corn better 
than it. Thirty-three years was his age 1 when he yielded his 
spirit to heaven, A.D. 548. 2 

Ciaran is in this regard compared unto Christ, for Christ was 
thirty-three years of age at Ids death, as was Ciaran. Beoaidh, 
the Carpenter, was the name of the father of Ciaran, as Joseph, 
the Carpenter, was the name of the husband of Mary, 3 of whom 
was born Christ, who made heaven and earth and all that is 
between them. 

Cuimin, of Coindeire, states, in the poem which begins, 
" Patrick of the fort of Macha loves," &c., that Ciaran never 
looked upon a woman from the time he was born, and never told 
a lie. Thus he says : 

3 Husband of Mary. Cete YTItiifie. The word cete is interpreted by Zeuss marilus, 
socivs, Cramm. Celt. pp. 22, 23, 245, 371; cele inline, gener, ib. p. 371. The primary

" The holy Ciaran., of Cluain, loves 

Humility, from which he did not rashly swerve ; 
He never uttered a word that was false, 
Nor looked upon woman from his birth." 

It was Ciaran that composed the celebrated poetical lay, 
which begins, "An rim a ri an richid rain," &c., asking of God a 
prolongation of his life, that he might perform more labour and 
service to Him. Great are his signs and his miracles, as is evi 
dent in his Life. He had four brothers arid three holy sisters, 
viz., Cronan the Deacon, Donnan the Deacon, Luachall the Priest, 
and Odhran the Priest; Lughbet, Pata, and Raithbeo, were the 
three sisters. A very ancient old-vellum-book states, that 
Ciaran of Cluain was, in his habits and life, like unto John, the

his mother. 
COLMAN, Bishop. 
CONAMHAIL, son of Failbhe. He was of the race of Colla Uais, 

monarch of Erin. 


MOLAISSI, son of Nadfraech, Abbot of Daimhinis. He was of the 
race of Trial, son of Conall Cernach. Momia was the name of 
his mother, according to his own Life, chap. 5. On a certain 
time, as he and his monks were taking their scanty meal, the 
refectory took fire, and the monks rose up suddenly to fly from 
the house, on seeing it in red glowing flames. He requested of 
them to remain, to go on their knees, and to make prayer ; and 
he himself did the same, and he reached forth his hand to the 
fire, and the ridge-pole of the house fell in, and it did them no 
further injury than that; then he permitted the monks to rise 
from their posture of prayer. 

Cuimin, of Coindeire, states, in the poem which begins, " Pa 
trick of the fort of Macha loves," that Molaissi loved to be in a 
stone prison, and also to keep a house of hospitality for every 
one in Erin. Thus he says : 
" Molaisi, of the Lake, 2 loves 

To be in a prison of hard stone, 

To have a house of guests for the men of Erin, 

Without refusal, without a particle of churlishness." 

2 Of the Lake. That is, Loch Erne, in which his island of Daimhinis, now Devenish, is 
situate. (R.)

1 The 15th day. Over the word cctngecrD, is written, as a gloss, feipOT), which makes 
it the 16th day. (T.) 

2 Michen. " As brother Michen says." The following note is written here in the more 
recent hand: " Antiphona communis. Vir Dei dum verbuin vita3 populo praedicaret, visus 
est a terra paululum subliniari, et in aere pendere, et mirati sunt universi. Adesto nobis 
quaesumus Domine, ut beati Lasreani confessoris tui atque abbatis interventu ab omni 
inquinatione mundemur corporis et mentis, per Christum." This is evidently taken from 
some ancient office for St. Molaisse, who is also called S. Laserian, or Lasrianus. (T.) 


The Life of Ciaran, of Cluain, states, chap. 47, that the order 
of Molaissi was one of the eight orders that were in Erin ; but 
perhaps it speaks of some other of the same name. After com 
pleting thirty years he went to heaven, A.D. 563. On the 1 5th 
day 1 of this same month is celebrated the festival and holiday of 
Molaisse in his own parish, and termon, at Bealach Ui-Michein, 
juxta fratrem Michen. 2 

AILBHE, Archbishop, of Imleach lobhair, in Munster, A.D. 541, 
when he resigned his spirit. Ailbhe was of the race of Fert- 
lachtga, son of Fergus, son of Ross, son of Rudhraighe. Sant 
was the name of his mother. It was he that composed in verse 
the rule which begins, " Say for me [to the son of Saran 3 ]/ 
Cuimin, of Coindeire, cecinit : 
" Ailbhe loved hospitality : 

He was not a false devotee ; 
There came not into a body of clay, 
One more generous of food or raiment." 

MACLAISRE, Bishop and Abbot, of Ard-Macha, A.D. 622. I think 
it is he that is of the race of Eoghan, son of Niall ; or it may 
be he is of the race of Corbmac Cas, son of Oilioll Olum.

the Lagenians are descended; and Caoiltighern, daughter of 
Caomhlogha, sister of Caoimhghin, was his mother. 

Saran. The words in brackets are added by Mr. Curry as completing the first line of 
the poem. There is a good copy of this poetical Rule in Mr. Curry s copy of the Brussels 
MS., containing the Felire of Aengus, &c. The poem is addressed to Eoghan, son of 
Saran, of Cluain Coelain, Co. Tipperary. See above, March 15. (T.) 

4 Labhraidh. Over this name is written, as a correction, in the later hand, 
Labhraidh s surname was Loingseach, and he was son of Oilioll Aine. (R.)

[He was always a virgin, and he used to sleep in a very thin 
tunic, which he wore at matins also, and he used to sing his 
psalms frequently immersed in water. Now Gormlaith, daughter 
of Flann, son of Maelsechlainn, son of Domhnall, was his wife, 
but he never sinned with her except by one kiss after matins ; 
and he sang thrice fifty psalms as penance for it, in the fountain 
of Loch Tarbh. 

He was seven years king, according to Selbhach the Elder, 
in his elegy, " Pity that Caisel should be without Corbmac." 
And see the other poem which Corbmac himself composed,

1 A bridge. From TTlena t>fioicec, * bridge of Men, is formed Mondrehid, which is the 
name of a townland in the parish of Offerlane, in the Queen s County. Mena, though put 
in casu recto in the text, is properly the genitive of Men, as appears by the note on the 
Fclire of ^Engus, at the 16th of September; as also by the pronunciation of tho 


LAISREN, of Mena : i.e., Mena is the name of a river which is in 
Laoighis ; or it was from a bridge, l which is on that river, the

nan, a copy of which is preserved in the Irish collection of MSS. at Brussels. (K.) 


COLUM, Priest, of Enach. 

COLMAN, son of Cathbhadh, of Midhe-iseal. Aighlenn, daughter 

of Le nin, was his mother. 
THE SONS OF ERNIN, of Inis-mac-n-Ernin, in Loch Ce 7 , in Connacht. 


ADAMNAN, 1 son of Ronan, of the race of Conall Gulban, son of 
Niall, as to his stock. His mother was of the race of Enna, son 
of Niall. Ronat was her name. This is the Adamnan who 
was six and twenty years in the abbacy of I-Coluim-Cille. 
On a certain day that he was at Hi, he meditated in his mind 
to remain for three days and three nights in his church alone 
praying to the Lord, and he remained to the end of that 
time without coming to the monastery at all. They sent some 
mature men to the church to know how the cleric was, for they 
thought he was too long absent from them. They looked through 
the key-hole, and they saw a little boy with brilliance and 
bright radiance in the bosom of Adamnan. And Adamnan was 
thanking and caressing the infant ; and they were not able to 
look at him any longer by reason of the divine rays which were 
around the boy. They were certain that it was Jesus who was 
in the shape of an infant, delighting Adamnan in this manner, 
and also that he was his satisfaction and gratification during 
these three days and nights. 2 He was a vessel of wisdom, and 
a man full of the grace of God, and of the knowledge of the 
holy Scriptures, and of every other wisdom; a burning lamp 
which illuminated and enlightened the west of Europe with the 
light of virtues and good morals, laws, and rules, wisdom and 
knowledge, humility and self-abasement. These are his churches, 
namely, Rathbhoth, Druim-Thuama, in Cinel-Conaill ; The Serin, 
in Tir Fhiachrach Muaidhe ; and other churches besides. Se 
venty-seven years was his age when he sent his spirit to heaven, 
A.D. 703. 3 His body was interred with great honour and respect 
at Hi, and his body was removed to Erin after some time. 

3 A.D. 703. Thus in the Annals of Ulster, and the Four Masters. The true date is 
704. (R.)

1 Leabhar-na-hUidhre. This manuscript, which is preserved in the library of the Royal 
Irish Academy, contains the pi-p (X/oartinain, or Vision of Adamnan, at fol. 34. There 
is also a copy of the same tract in the Leabhar Breac (fol. 171 a), in the same collection. 

2 She is. The passage within brackets is in the more recent hand. The St. Thecla, of 
the Greek and Roman Martyrologies is styled Prima Martyr, the proto-martyr of her sex. 


It was to Adamnan were revealed the glory of the kingdom 
of heaven and the pains of hell, as contained in the Vision of 
Adamnan, which was copied from the Leabhar-na-hUidhre. l And 
thenceforward it was the glory of heaven and the pains of hell 
he used to preach. The Life of Ciaran, of Cluain, states, chap. 
47, that the order of Adamnan was one of the eight orders that 
were in Erin. 

A very ancient old- vellum-book, of which we have spoken at 
1st of February, at Brighit, and at 17th March, at Patrick, and 
at 9th of June, at Colum Cille, &c., states, that Adamnan was, 
in his habits and life, like unto Silvester the Pope. 
CONAING, son of Lucunan. 



TECLA, Virgin. [See whether she be the Greek virgin and martyr 

whose festival is this day celebrated by the Church. I think 

she is. 2 ] 


FAELCHU, of Fionnghlass. 

CEALLACHAN, of Cluain-tioprat. 

CAOLCHU, 3 of Lui-airthir. We find in the Naemhsheanchus a 
Caolchu, son of Gaol, son of Connla, of the race of Ciar, son of 
Fergus, son of Ross, son of Rudhraighe, a quo Clanna-Rudh- 
raighe ; and we find in the Life of Bairre, chap. 1 0, that there 
was a Caolchu at the school of Bairre at Loch Ire, 4 and that he 
gave up his church to God and to Bairre ; and it is likely that 
this is he, for I do not find another in the Martyrology. 


3 Caolchu. Opposite this is written in the margin, by the later hand, Cokhus, as the 
latinized form of the name. (R-) 

4 Loch Ire. So in the manuscript ; but Loch Tree is the correct name. The reference 
in the text, both here and under Bairre, is to the Irish Life of St. Bairre. See under Tal-

1 Ills Life. The legend of St. Bairre s miraculous consecration is given in his Latin 
Life, of which there are several copies in existence. The Life, however, which is referred 
to here is that in Irish, which is preserved among the Irish MSS. at Brussels, and in the 
collection of the Royal Irish Academy. (R-) 



BAIRRE, Bishop and Confessor, of Corcach, in Munster. Christ 
himself conferred the degree of bishop upon him, as is evident 
from his Life. l He was of the race of Brian, son of Eochaidh 
Muighmheodhoin. Cuimin, of Coindeire, states, in the poem 
which begins, "Patrick of the fort of Macha loves/ that Bairre 
was humble to every person, and that he used to give assist 
ance to every person whom he saw in want. Thus he says : 

" Bairre, the fire of wisdom, loves 
Humility to the men of the world; 
He never saw in want 
A person that he did not assist." 

Bairre spoke in his mother s womb, and also immediately 
after his birth, in order to justify his father and his mother, as 
his Life states in the first chapter. 

We find in a very old book which contains the Martyrology 

, of Tamhlacht, and the History of the Female Saints, that there 
were seventeen holy bishops and seven hundred prosperous 
monks together with Bairre and St. Nessan, at Corcach-M6r of 
Munster. We find in the same book that Bairre, bishop of 
Munster and of Connacht, had a likeness in habits and life to 
Augustin, bishop of the Saxons.

the name of a place not of a man. Probably Cluain- Ailbhe, lawn of Ailbhe, or Magh- 
nAilbhe, plain of Ailbhe, is intended, as it is not unusual to find, in such cases as Cairbre, 
Laoghaire, &c., a personal name applied to a region, without any qualification. (R.)

SEANAN, Bishop. 

SIOLLAN, Abbot. 


CAINNEACH, Abbot. He was of the race of Ciar, son of Fergus, 
son of Ross, son of Rudhraighe. Achadh-bo was his principal 
church, and there is an abbey-church of his at Cill-Righmonadh 
in Albain. 

A very ancient old- vellum-book states that Cainneach was, 
in his habits and life, like unto Philip the apostle. And I find 
no characterizing whatever of the Cainneach of which it gives 
this account ; and if this be not he, I ask forgiveness of the real 
saint of whom it was given, if I am acting ignorantly respecting 
his identity. Colum-cille frequently speaks of Cainneach in 
his Life, and it is likely that it is of the Cainnech who was in 
Ciannachta he speaks. Eighty-four years was his age when he 
sent his spirit to heaven, A.D. 598. And thou wouldst think, 
according to this quatrain, that it is he that was in Ciannachta 
of Gleann Geimhin, in Ulster: 

Her Welsh name was Ceneu, or Cein-wyryf, i.e. Ceneu the Virgin. Rees, Welsh Saints,

1 Of the Rule. Opposite this line, in the margin, is written OCn moi-fi f eipefi rnap,b. (li.) 

2 Colla-da-chriock. This is not in agreement with the ancient pedigree which represents 
him as eighth in descent from Niall of the Nine Hostages, son of Eochaidh MuigHmed- 
hoin. (R.) Another pedigree makes him a descendant of Noem, or Noah, son of Gas 
mac Tail, ancestor of the Dal Cais, of the race of Oilioll Oluin. O Flaherty, Ogygia, p. 
386, (T.) 

s OfSlebhle. This is inserted in the later hand. (R.) 


" Cainnech of the rule, 1 

Not wrong what thou doest; 
At Achadh-bo thou wert lively; 
Greater and greater thy stories, 
In Ciannachta I have heard 
Of thy piety, thy tears." 

Thus, moreover, Cuimin of Condoire speaks in the poem, 
namely, " Patrick of the fort of Macha loves," &c. : 
" Cainneach, the pious, loves 

To be in a hard woody desert; 
There was no one near him, 
Save only the wild deer." 

There are three other Cainneachs, and we know not of which 

of them this account is given. 
FOIRTCHERN, son of Feidhlimidh, son of Laogliaire, son of Niall 

of the Nine Hostages. He was a bishop, and a disciple of 

Patrick, and he was of Ath-Truhn in Laogliaire, and of Gill 

Foirtcheirn in Ui-Drona, in Leinster. 
LOMMAN, Bishop, another disciple of Patrick, and he was of Ath- 

Truim also ; and Darerca, sister of Patrick, was his mother. 


BECC, son of De, son of Gnoe. He was of the race of Colla-da- 

chrioch, 2 and a celebrated prophet. 
FIACC, Bishop, of Slebhte in Leinster, of the race of Cathaoir 

FIACHRAIDH, his son, of the same church with Fiacc [of Slebhte 3 ], 

his father. 
MOBHI CLAIRENECH, [Abbot 4 ], of Glas Naoidhen in Fine-Gall, on 5 

the brink of the river Life, on the north side; and Bearchan 

4 Abbot. The word ob is inserted in the later hand. (R.) 

5 On. The Four Masters in their Annals make the same statement at the year 544 ; 
instead of which they should have said, as O Donovan observes, either "wear the river Liffey 
to the north," or " on the brink of the Finglass [Tolka] to the north of the Liffey." (R.)

of the Feilire of Aengus, it is given thus : Nir bo seimni im Jo, which the late Mr. Curry 
translated "It was not a bulrush round a cow." In the Leabhar breac, fol. 118 a, the 
reading is, Ni ro hiadlnnUt im lua; and the word ha is glossed ./. bratderr/; "it w:is not 


was another name for him. The year of the Lord when he- 
resigned his spirit was 544. He was of the race of Eochaidh 
Finn Fuathairt, of whom Brighit is descended ; and Uanfinn, 
daughter of Finnbarr, was his mother. The Life of Colum 
Cille, chap. 35, states that Colum Cille went to Glas Naoidhen, 
where Mobhi Clairenech was with two score and ten persons at 
his school ; and among them were Cainneach, Ciaran of Cluain, 
and Comgall ; and after the dispersion of the school, Mobhi re 
quested of Colum Cille not to accept of any land till he should 
give him leave. The same life states, chap. 39, that when Colum 
Cille was at Doire, where the king of Erin, Aedh, son of Ain- 
mire, was, Aedh offered that town to Colum Cille, and that 
Colum refused to accept of the town because he had not the 
permission of Mobhi, and that on his coming forth from the 
town, two of Mobhi s people met him, bringing the girdle of 
Mobhi with them to him, after Mobhi s own death, together 
with his permission to him to accept of land. When Colum 
received the girdle he said : " Good was the man who had this 
girdle," said he, "for it was never opened for gluttony, nor closed 
on falsehood." On which occasion he composed the quatrain : 
" Mobhi s girdle, [Mobhi s girdle], 

Nibhdar 1 sibhne im lo, 

It was not opened for satiety, 

It was not closed on a lie." 

DIARMAIT, Bishop. There is a Diarmait, son of Baedan, of the 
race of Laeghaire, son of Niall of the Nine hostages. 

SlOLNATAN, son of Cruimet. 

NAINNIDH, of Inis Cais. 



BECC BILE, son of Tighernach, son of Fergus. He was of the race 
of Conall Gulban, son of Niall. 



closed upon lua, or fo," i.e. a red cloak. Taking this last reading as making better sense, 
the meaning may be " The girdle was not closed upon bravery of dress." (T.)

CUAN. I think this is the Cuan, of Cluain-mor, who went along

Moling himself speaks in the history called the Borumha : 
" Dear the three who faced the difficulty, 
Who will go with me for my welfare, 
Dubhthach, Dubhan, who conceals sorrow, 
And Cuan of Cluain-mor."

Annals of Ulster have, at this year, the entry, Quies Aedain episcopi Saxonum. But the 
monastery of Mayo was not founded till after 667, when Colman, the third bishop of Lin- 
disfarn, retired from Northumbria to the west of Ireland. The date and place are, there 
fore, inconsistent, and the text is erroneous. (I*-)

MUNNA, Bishop and Abbot, of Cluain Eidhnigh in Laoighis. Fionn- 
tain was another name for Munna. Tulchan was the name of 
his father. Two hundred and thirty was the number of the 
monks in his convent. And it was Mochua, son of Lonan, that 
cured him of the leprosy which he had from the beginning. 
He was of the race of Conall Gulban, son of Niall. Fedhelm, 
daughter of Maine, son of Niall, was his mother. It was of him 
this testimony was given : 

u The son of Tulchan, of his own consent, 

Did not thrust a nail 1 into his flesh ; 

That his suffering might be the greater here, 2 

He never scratched himself." 

A very ancient old- vellum-book states that- Munna, the son 
of Tulchan, was in his habits and life like unto Job the Patient.

DALBHACH, of Cuil Collainge. He was of the race of Oilioll Flann- 
beg, son of Fiacha Muilleathan, son of Eoghan Mor, son of 
Oilioll Olum. Cuimin, of Coindeire, states, in the poem which 
begins, " Patrick of the fort of Macha loves," that this saint 
was a great performer of penance, and that he never touched 
his hand to his side as long as he lived. Thus he says : 

2 Here, That is, in this world. (R.)

1 TF7*o blessed. That is, who in founding a church gave his blessing to the place. The 
Life of S. Abban, as published by Colgan, says, at chap. 20, " Deinde sanctus Dei venit 
ad terranj Huath Liathain, et ibi cellam, qua; dicitur Ceallcruimthir, prope civitatem 
Culcollingi, vel Cillculen, aedificavit : et alios ex discipulis suis ibi dimisit." Actt. SS. p. 
615 6. (R.) 

2 Ceti, the bishop. The Annals of Ulster, at 711, and the Four Masters, at 710, record 
the death of Coeddi, bishop of la, or lona. This date tallies very well with the supposed 
period at which the synod of Adanman was held. Colgan l;ifini/.es the name Caidimis. 



" The fair Dalbhach, of Cuil, loves 
To practise intense penance : 
He never touched his hand to his side 
As long as he retained his soul." 

Aban was he who blessed 1 at Cuil Collainge first. Life of 
Aban, chap. 11. 


JOAIN, Bishop, of Cill-airthir.

was one of the saints who were security to free the women from

of him he speaks.

Domhnach. (R.) 

3 Caoide. This entry is in the margin of the MS. in the more recent hand. The Caoide

LoNAN, 1 of Trefoit, in Bregha, at the Boinn. Art, son of Conn of 
the Hundred Battles, king of Erin, after having seen the vision 
the day before the battle of Magh Mucraimhe, said that Dumha 
Dergluachra was the name of this place at first, and that Trefot 
should be on it 2 from that forth, from the three sods which he 
would cut at that time, viz., a sod to be put under his head, and 
a sod under each of his sides, and that it is there he should be 
buried in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the 
Holy Ghost. It was then that Art composed the poem beginning, 
" The fairest of mounds make ;" and it is therefore evident that 
he believed, as is understood, &c. 

The father of this Lonan, of TreTot, was named Talmach ; and 
Dustric, daughter of Trust, 3 king of North Britain, was his 
mother, as this quatrain proves : 

" Truist, king of the noble Inbher from the strand, 
Had one only daughter, 
Dustric, born to every happiness, 
The mother of Lonan, son of Talmach." 


COLMAN, son of Fionan, of Ath lomglaisse.

is written 6 Rene 1nnpi &T>ni5, ( of Rath-Innsi-Edhnigh ). But as the whole line is: 
t)icoU, YT)a|iccm TTliita, it is likely that 6 fionr, the location of Dicoll has been, through 
clerical inadvertence, attracted over to Martan, (for innp, being in the genitive, may be 
governed either by ftcnt or by TTIafican); especially as the Annals of Ulster, at 772, and 
the Four Masters, at 768, record the death of tllcqiccm 1npe dronech, Martan of Tnis-

J Ciara. The descent of St. Benen is more correctly given among the Saints pedigrees 
in the Book of Lecan, "Benen, son of Sescnen, psalmist to Patrick, of the Cianachta of 
Glenn Genihin, of the race o/Tadhg, son of Cian, son of Oilill Olum." Benen was a child 
in 432, and therefore could not be the grandson of Cian, who was slain, as the Four Masters 
relate, in the year 241. Possihly the mark .^., i.e., Notn, in the margin, opposite this 
passage, may he intended to invite criticism. (R.) 

2 Trtrlhtji son nf ( inn. OVlory has shown sad want of judgment in transferring to his 



BENIGNUS, i.e., Benen, son of Sescne n, disciple of Patrick, and his 
successor, that is, Primate of Ard-Macha. He was of the race 
of Cian, son of Oilioll Olum. Sodelbh, daughter of Cathaoir, son 
of Feidhlimidh Firurghlais, of Leinster, was his mother. The 
holy Benen was benign, was devout ; he was a virgin without 
ever defiling his virginity ; for when he was psalm-singer at Ard- 
Macha along with his master, St. Patrick, Earcnat, daughter of 
Daire, loved him, and she was seized with a disease, so that she 
died suddenly; and Benen brought consecrated water to her 
from Patrick, and he shook it upon her, and she arose alive and 
well, and she loved him spiritually afterwards, and she subse 
quently went to Patrick and confessed all her sins to him, and 
she offered her virginity afterwards to God, so that she went 
to heaven ; and the name of God, of Patrick, and of Benen, was 
magnified through it. 

Benen was the son of Sescnen, who was the son of Cian, 1 son 
of Oilioll Olum, &c., and Sodhealbh, daughter of Cathaoir Mor, 
was his mother, according to his own Life, chap. 2. 

Tadhg, son of Cian, 2 was the king of the men of Bregia at 
that time; it was he that nursed his brother s son, i.e., Benen, 
son of Sescne n, son of Cian, chap. 3, and it was Tadhg that 
brought Benen to Patrick at Inis-Patrick, chap. 3. 

SINECH, of Cluain Leith-teangadh, Virgin. She was either of the 
race of Maine, son of Mall of the Nine Hostages, or of the race 
of Corb Ulom, son of Fergus, son of Eoss. 

FINNSEACH, Virgin, of Cruachan Maighe-abhna. 

SARNAT, Virgin, daughter of Aedh, in Tir-Maine. 

pages such a statement as is made in this paragraph. Tadhg, son of Cian, was engaged in 
the battle of Crinna, and for his services therein, received, in the year 226, the territory 
in Bregia, which was afterwards called by the tribe name, derived from his father, Cian- 
achta. He must, therefore, have lived 206 years more in order to have done what is here 
stated. The Life of St. Benen here cited seems to have been compiled by a most reckless or 
ignorant biographer. Further, the memoir of St. Patrick, in the Book of Armagh, which 
is the earliest authority on the subject, states that St. Patrick found Benignus with his 
father Sesceneus, fol. 9 b a. (R.)

1 Sinell The name (in the genitive) is /Siltii in the Annals of Ulster, and S/litc, in tin- 
Four Masters, at 604. (K.) 




COIRPRE, Bishop, of Cuil-Raithin, son of Decill, son of Nadsluagh, 

of the race of Irial, son of Conall Cearnach. 
CRUIMHTHER, of Domhnach-mor, and he may be Cruimhther 

Ciaran, who is of the race of Colla Menn. 
MURGHAL, i.e., a soldier of Christ. 

CRONAN, son of Sinell, 1 A.D. 664. There is a Cronan, son of Sinell, 
of the race of Coindri, son of Fergus, son of Ross, son of Rudh- 
raighe, according to the Naomh-senchus. 

DUBHAN, Priest. He was of the Lagenians, and brother of Dam- 
han, of Cluain-foda, in Fiodh-mor. I think that this is the 
Duuhan who went along with Moling to ask for the remission 
of the Borumha, as Moling himself says : 

" Dear the three who faced the difficulty, 
Who will go with me, for my welfare, 
Dubthach, Dubhan, who conceals sorrow, 
And Cuan of Cluain-mor." 


CUIMMIN FoDA, 2 son of Fiachna, Bishop, of Cluainferta-Brenainn. 

Aedh was his first proper name, and Drum-da-liter was the 
name of his place. He was of the race of Core, son of Lughaidh, 
son of Oilioll Flannbeg, son of Fiacha Muillethan, son of Eoghan 
Mor, son of Oilioll Olum. And Rim, his own sister, was his 
mother, as is evident from his own Life. Mide, the holy virgin, 
was his nurse. This man was the vessel of wisdom of his time. 
He was the learned preacher of the word of God. The age of 
Christ when he resigned his spirit to heaven was 661. 

That is, "the Tall." See Book of Hymns, pp. 84, 89. (R.)

1 Of the Morals. An epithet applied to S. Gregory the Great in reference to his Libri 


The old- vellum-book which is mentioned at Brighit, 1st of 
February, and at Patrick, 17th of March, states that Cuimin 
Foda was, in his habits and life, like unto Gregory " of the 
Morals." 1 

FIONNCHADH, Bishop, of Gill Forga. I think that this is Bishop 
Fionnchadh, of Cill-Arga, in Breifne, whom Molaisse predicted, 
as is understood from the Life of Molaisse, chap. 18. Bishop 
Fionnchadh was blessed by Moling in his mother s womb. 
Same chapter.

SINELL, son of Mianach, of Claoin-inis, in Loch Eirne. 

ERNIN, son of Fionnchan, Abbot, of Leith-ghlinn.

METHEAL CHAOL, Virgin, of Disert-Methle-Caoile, in Fir-Arda. 


CAILLIN, son of Niatach, Bishop, of Fiodhnacha of Magh Rein. 
He was of the race of Conmac, son of Fergus, son of Ross, son 
of Rudhraighe ; and Deidi, daughter of Tren, son of Dubhthach 
Mac Ua Lughair, was his mother. The Life of Maedhog, of 
Ferna, states, chap. 14, that Maedhog was a school pupil of 
Caillin. This was the Caillin who performed the famous mira 
cle on the Druids, whom Fergna, son of Fergus, king of Breifne, 
(the father of Aedh Finn,) sent against him when he commenced 
the erection of Fiodhnach, on which occasion he turned the 
Druids into stones at once, and they still remain in the shape 

Moralium, or Expositio in Librum beati 7oi, the first of his compositions in his collected 
works. (R.)

up king Fergna himself. The holy Caillin was an attenuated 
pious man ; he was a virgin ; he was chaste ; he was a burning

the 4th of the Ides of November, i.e. the 10th of November. Colgan, however, had a 
second Latin Life, different in style, and more diffuse : possibly it may have been the 
authority here referred to. In the Acta SS. Hibernian the printed Life is introduced at the 
28th of February, the day on which Colgan states he finds S. Aedus festival in the 
Martyrology of Sarum, Whitford, the Mart. Taml., and Mart. Donegal, and that as he had 
the option of two days he chose the earlier. He is, however, incorrect in the statement that 
the Mart. Donegal, i.e., the present compilation, gives this saint s day at Feb. 28, for the 
name does not appear here in any form (see p. 58 stipra). In the Mart. Taml., however, 
we find, at Feb. 28, the commemoration CCeT>o line b|nc, of Aedh, son of Brec. (R.)

2 Any other Colman Uamhach. This is an oversight, The Annals of Ulster, at 724, and 
tho Four Masters, at 720, record the death of Column Uamach, scribe of Arm at jl. 


COLMAN, son of Lenin, of Cluain-Uamha, in Ui-Liatliain, in Mun- 
ster, of the race of Oilioll Oluim, son of Mogh-Nuadhat. Or 
this Colman was of the race of Lughaidh Lagha, his brother, 
according to this quatrain, which is in the poem "Naemhshen- 
chus naemh Insi Fail": 

" Colman, son of Lenin, the full, 
And Mothemneog, son of Cerban, 
Were of the race of two brothers, 
Oilioll Oluim and Lughaidh." 

The first book of the Life of Patrick, 1 chap. 17, and the third 
book, chap. 60, state that Colman Uamhach was among the 
authors who wrote the Life of Patrick, and I think that this is 
that Colman, for I do not find any other Colman Uamhach 2 but 
MAINE, son of Eoghan. This may be Maine, son of Eichin, son of 

Eoghan, who was of the race of Eoghan, son of Niall. 
BERCHAN, of Inis-Rochla, in Loch Eirne. He was of the race of 

BOICH, Master. 


FIONNCHU, son of Fionnlogh, of Bri-gobhann, in Fir-Maighe-Feine, 
in Munster. He is of the race of Brian, son of Eochaidh Muigh- 
medhoin; i.e., Fionnlogh, son of Sedna; and Idnait, daughter 
of Flann Lethderg, of the Ciannachta of Glenn Geimhin, was 
his mother, as the Book of MacCarthaigh Riabhach states. 3 It 
was Ailbhe, of Imleach lubhair, that baptized him. Fionnchu 
was seven years in the abbacy of Bennchor next after Comh- 
ghall. Life of Fionnchu, chap. 5. Fionnchu was a pupil of 
Comhghall, and it was with him he studied, chap. 4. 

This was the Fionnchu who used to be often in a stone prison 

3 States. The book here referred to is the MS. commonly called the Book of Lismore, a 
fine copy of a portion of which, by O Curry, containing this Life in Irish, is preserved in 
the library of the Royal Irish Academy. See Transactions of the Kilkenny Archaeol. Soc , 
vol. i., New Series, p. 375, and Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy, vol. i., p/450. (R.)

not higher than his own length, and a stone over his head, and a 
stone under his feet, and two iron staples under each side of the 
prison, and he used to rest both his armpits on these staples, so 
that his head might not touch the stone above, nor his feet the 
stone below. The proof of this is what Cuimin, of Coindeire, 
said : 

" Fionnchu, of Bri Gobhann, loves 

The blessing of Jesus on his soul, 

Seven years was he on his hooks 

Without his touching the ground." 

Comhghall, of Bennchor, came to him on one occasion, and 
commanded him to come out of the prison, and he obeyed him, 
though with reluctance, &c. It was he that used to lie the first 
night in the same grave with every corpse which used to be 
buried in his church, &c.

1 ^4.D. 571. The Annals have an entry recording the death of Brendan, of Biorr, at 
564, as well as at 571. The latter is adopted by the Four Mast. (R.) 

2 Chap. 25. The reference is to the ancient Irish Life of this Saint, a copy of which 
Colgan had, (Actt. SS., p. 4G3 6,) but, which it is to be regretted, he did not print or 
translate. (II.) 


Secundinus used to pray alone under a leafy tree, and that the 
sign of the cross is in that place, i.e., at Topar Mucna, in Con- 
nacht, as is understood from the Acts of Patrick. 

A very ancient old- vellum-book, spoken of at Brighit, 1st of 
February, and at Patrick, 17th of March, states, that Bishop 
Sechnall had a similarity in morals and life to Hilarius, bishop 
and sage. 

TOCA, son of Cuan. 



THE THREE SONS OF BOCHRA, i.e., Laidhgenn, Cainneach, and 
Accobhran ; and they are of Achadh Raithin, in Ui-Mic-Caille, 
in Deisi-Mumhan. Bochra was the name of their mother. 


BRENAINN, Abbot, of Biorra, A.D. 5 7 1. 1 He was of the race of 
[Corb, son of] Fergus, son of Ross, son of Rudhraighe ; and Mann- 
sena was the name of his mother ; and at Tamhlacht-Maoilruain 
both are buried. Life of Ciaran of Saighir, chap. 25. 2 

A very ancient old- vellum-book, which contains the Martyr- 
ology of Maelruain of Tamhlacht, states, that this Brenainn, i.e., 
Brenainn of Biorra, had a similarity in habits and life to Par- 
tholan, i.e., Bartholomeus, the Apostle. The Life of Colum 
Cille states, chap. 8, 3 that Brenainn had foretold that Colum 
Cille would be born, some time before his birth. It was he that 
composed this quatrain for Colum Cille ; Life of Colum Cille, 
chap. 245 4 : 

" Colum Cille our master; 

A mouth that never uttered a lie; 

He shall be our senior, 

Although he be young." 

3 Chap. 8. Or, lib. i., chap. 12, in Colgan s version, Trias Thaum., p. 391 a. (R.) 

4 Chap. 245. Colgan does not give the words, but alludes to St. Brendan s encomiastic 
verses on the subject. O Donnell, iii., 41, Trias Thaurn., p. 438 a. (R.)

another name for him, i.e., he spent half his life in Alba, and 
the other half in Erin, as he himself said : 
" At first we were in Alba, 
The next first in Heath; 

Truly it was not foolish sleep that I went bent on, 
I did not find the face of a hero by sleeping."

which follow are from the notes on that poem, which are unfortunately wanting to the 
month of December in the Leabhar Breac. They occur, however, in the Bodleian copy, 
Laud. 610: and Dr. Todd has recently transcribed them from the copy at St. Isidore s in 
Rome. The foregoing extract is from this latter MS. (R.)

his relics are preserved. He was of the race of Eoghan Mor, 
son of Oilioll Olum. 
MEALLAN, Priest. 



BUITE, i.e., Boetius, Bishop of the Monastery. It was in the year 
of our Lord 520 that he died, i.e., the day on which Colum 
Cille was born, 1 as stated in the Life of Buite himself. Brute, 
son of Bronach of Mainister-Buithe, was of the race of Connla, 
son of Tadhg, son of Cian, son of Oilioll Ohiim. A very ancient 
old- vellum-book, mentioned at Brighit, 1st of February, states 
that Buite, son of Bronach, and Beda the Wise, had a resem 
blance to each other in habits and life. 

" The bright festival of Buite the Victorious." 2 
Buite that is, he is called Beo or Buite, which signifies fire/ 
ut in proverbio dicitur, <Bot fo breghaibh, (Fire under liars), 
unde dicitur hodie Butelach, i.e., ubi fit magnus ignis. Buite, 
however, is quasi Beti ab eo, quod est beatus. Beatus autem 
dicitur, quasi bene auctus vel aptus/ for it was a great increase of 
honour to him that a star manifested his birth, as it manifested 
the birth of Christ. Or Buite, quasi Beode, 3 because God was 
life to him : sicut scriptum est, " Qui vivunt jam non sibi 
vivant sed ei qui pro ipsis mortuus est, et resurrexit 4 ; non 
suam seculi in hoc mundo voluntatem [facientes], sed ejus qui 
pro ipsis passus est." 




3 Beode. That is beo, living, and T)e, God, the compound denoting Living- to-God, 
God-living. (R.) 

4 Resurrexit. The preceding quotation is taken from 2 Cor., v. 15 ; what follows is not 
referable to any particular passage of Holy Scripture. (R.)

BRENAINN, of Tethbaith, in Connacht. 

FIONAN CUAE. He may be Fionan, of Druim-habhradh, son of 

Garbhan, who is of the race of Aenghus, son of Nadfraech, 

king of Munster. 
[ECBRIT, or Icbrit. Marianus. He seems English. 1 ] 


FEIDHLIM, Virgin, and MUGHAIN, two daughters of Ailill, son of 
Dunlang; and Cill-na-n-ingean in the west of Magh-Life, by 
the side of Liamhain, is the name of his place. They are of the 
race of Cathaoir Mor, of Leinster. 

MOSEGHA, son of Coimsech. 


MODIOMOG, Bishop and Confessor, of Cluain-cain-Aradh, in 

SCANLACH, of Ard-Scanlaighe, in Cinel-Ardgail. She was of the 

race of Laeghaire, son of Niall. 
[CELSUS. 2 Marianus.] 

SENCHAN, Bishop and Abbot, of Imleach lubhair, A.D. 780. 3 This 

may be the brother of Mochua, son of Lughaidh, of Cluain 
Dolcain, who is of the race of Cathaoir Mor; and Cainer, of 
Cluain-da-shaileach, was the mother of these saints, and of five 
others, as is written at Mochua, 6 August. 

NADFRAOICH, Bishop. The Life of Brighit 4 states, chap. ] 7, that 
Nadfraech, of the men of Tuirbhi, was her lector and her 
preacher ; for she said, after she had received orders from Bishop 
Mel, that she would not take food without being previously 
preached unto. 5 

4 Life of Brighit This reference is to an Irish Life of the saint, the same perhaps 
which is mentioned by Colgan under S. Naiihfraichus, where he refers to a "Vita 
Hibernica S. Brigida?, cap. 17," Trias Thaum., p. 629 &. (R.) 

5 Preached unto. This, perhaps, refers to the ancient custom in the monasteries of having 
the Scriptures or some pious book read during meals. (T.)

1 Eltinus. The passage within brackets is in the later hand. Eltin, with the familial- 
prefix wo, my, makes Meltin, and this, by the change of the termination with the dimi

or My-Eltin-dear. (R.)

by the original compilers. See next entry but >ne. (R.)

FINNEN, Abbot of Cluain Eraird, in Meath ; a doctor of wisdom, 
and tutor of the saints of Ireland in his time ; for it was 
he that had three thousand saints at one school at Cluain 
Eraird, as is evident in his Life ; and it was out of them the 
twelve apostles of Erin were chosen, among whom ^uere Colum 
Cille, Ciaran of Cluain, &c. He was of the race of Cealtchar, 
son of Uithechar, who is of the race of Ir, son of Milidh, of

5 Elevation of Euite. The words in a parenthesis are on a detached leaf at fol. 70 of the 
original MS., and are borrowed from Marian O Gornian. The allusion is to St. Colum- 
cille s visit to the grave of St. Buite, 30 years after his death, and his disinterring and 
enshrining the saint s remains. See O Donnell s Life of S. Columba, i. 65, Trias Thaum.,

1 Was 659. The Four Masters (ed. O Donovan,) at this year record the death of this 
Bishop Colman, but erroneously assign his day to the second of December. (R.) 

2 Marianus. This entry is in the later hand, in which is added, Sed vide die precedenti 
jnxta hunc, meaning the day next but one before this, i.e., Dec. 10. There is neither 
Mosenog nor Senan in Marian at this day. (R.) 


apostles of Erin were at the school of Finnen, chap. 13. A 
very ancient old- vellum-book, in which is contained the Mar- 
tyrology of Maelruain, of Tamhlacht, and the List of Saints of 
the same name, states that Finnen was, in his habits and life, 
like unto Paul the apostle. 

COLMAN, Bishop, of Glenn-da-loch, of the race of Cealtchar, son of 
Uithechar. The age of Christ when he resigned his spirit was 6 5 9 . l 

DRONAN, Bishop, of Gill Dronain. 

DIARMAIT, Bishop. 



[MOSENOG. Marianne. 2 ] 



BRENAINN, of Eatarcluain. 

COLUM, of Tir-da-glas, son of Ninnidh, of the race of Cathaoir 
Mor, king of Erin, who is of the race of Labhraidh Lore, son of 
Ugaine Mor, etc. ; and Mincloth, sister of Caemell, daughter of 
Ceannfionnan, son of Ceis, son of Lughar, was his mother. 
Him Aenghus calls Colum Mac Crimhthainn, and other authors 
call him Mac Ui Cremhthannain. It was he that gave the sacri 
fice to Finnen, of Cluain-Eraird ; and he was a disciple of Finnen. 
Macaoimhe, of Tir-da-ghlas, and Odhran brought his relics to 
Inis Cealtra, as Ciaran of Saighir had foretold in his own Life, 3 
chap. 6, and as Mochaemhog had foretold when he was bap 
tizing Gdhran. See Odhran, 2 Gctober. 

MOBAOI, of Cluain-fionnabhair, or of Cluain-da-an-dobhair, in Ui- 
Muireadhaigh. Sinell was the name of his father; and Sin, 
daughter of Niall, son of Meachar, of Corca-Bhaiscinn, of the 
race of Conaire, of Leim Conculainn, was his mother. It is 
probable that he it is whom the Naoimhshencus calls Baedan, 
of Cluain-an-dobhair, son of Sinell, of the race of Conmac, son 

3 His own Life. The reference is here to an ancient Life of Ciaran of Saighir, or Seir- 
kieran, written in Irish, of which Colgan makes mention, Actt. Sanctor., p. 403 b.

1 Indenn. The words in parenthesis are in the later hand. Colgan has given his Life, 
translated from the Book of Lecan, at the 26th of March, because he found an unappro

Natalem, quern existimo esse hunc 2G Marti i, vel saltern 13 Decembris, quo alii memoriain 
S. Corbmaci memorant celebrari." (Act. SS., p. 755 a.) He is again mentioned in this 
calendar in connexion with his brother Eimhin, at the 22nd of this month. See p. 345,

2 Tir-da-loch. The note within brackets is in the later hand. It is intended to account 
for a supposed error of the Roman Martyrology in styling Beanus bishop of Aberdeen. That 
Mophiog, Mobheoc, and Beanus, are the same, requires no proof ; but the supposition that 
e-ppuj; CCp/occ [carn-fioi^] was read episcopus ab Ardo [ bishop of Ard ], and this then 
corrupted to episcopus Abardo or Abardonensis, is scarcely admissible. The case is this

Aberdonensis et confessoris." There is no difficulty in supposing that Beanus, a native of 
Treland, went over to Scotland, as so many of his countrymen did, and there founded a 
church, of which he became bishop, and that his festival was subsequently observed in 
Ireland as well as in Scotland, and in Ireland especially, because he was a native of Ireland, 
and best known there The Roman Martyrology, edited by Baronius, is less correct : 
" Aberdone in Hibernia sancti Beani episcopi." The diocese of Aberdeen was defined in 
1136 by King St. David, and the episcopal seat transferred from Mortlach, a church in 
Banff, lying to the north-west of Aberdeen, so that the preceding bishops of Mortlarh are 
included in the succession of Aberdeen. Now Fordun, speaking of the church of Murth- 
illuch, says: "Ad hanc sedem primus episcopus vi.s sanctus ct episcopatu dignus, cui 
uomen Bt\m, ad regis [Malcolmi] instantiam ad domino Papa Benedicto viii. [1012-1024] 


RODAIGHE, of Greallach Burma, between Tamhlacht and Cenannas. 
He was of the race gf Conall Gulban, son of Niall. Sobhen, 
daughter of Dubhthach, son of Rinni of Dun-bo, was his mother. 


CRUNNMAEL, Abbot of la Coluim-cille. 
MAEDHOG, son of Mursan. 

MAIGHNENN, Bishop and Abbot, of Cill-Maighnenn, near Ath- 

cliath. He was of the race of Colla-da-crioch. Sinell, daughter 
of Cenannan, sister of Old Senchell the saint, was his mother. 
He had a ram which used to carry his psalter and his prayer- 
book. There came a certain robber and thief, and stole the 
ram. Maighnenn, with his thrice nine clerics, went after the 
robber to his house. The robber denied having stolen the ram 
by oath on the relics, and on the hand of Maighnenn himself. 
The ram was cut up in quarters in a hole in the ground, after the 
robber had eaten what was in his belly. The ram spoke below in 
the hole. Maighnenn and his thrice nine persons looked up to 
heaven, and gave thanks to God for this miracle. But the 
robber was deprived of his eyesight, and their strength left his 
feet and his hands, and he said in a loud voice, "For God s 
sake," said he, " O Maighnenn, do not deprive me of the light of 
heaven for the future." When Maighnenn heard the repentance 

promotus est." Scotichron. iv. 44. (Vol. i. p. 227, ed. Goodall.) The foundation charter 
of this church, granted by Malcolm ii., A.D. 1010, "Episcopo Beyn de Morthelach" is pre 
served in the Register of the Diocese of Aberdeen (vol. i. p. 3, Spalding Club), and though 
called in question by the able editor, Professor Innes, (Pref. p. xiii.) is, at least, a colla 
teral evidence as to the existence of Bishop Beyn or Beanus in the neighbourhood of 
Aberdeen. It is to be observed that the St. Beanus or Bean of the Scotch Calendar, whom 
the Breviary of Aberdeen and Adam King commemorate at the 26th of October, is a 
different person, being venerated at Fowlis in Stratherne, and probably identical with S. 
Beoan of Tamhlacht-Menan, who appears in the Irish calendars at the same day. Came- 
rarius correctly assigns "Sanctus Beanus episcopus Murthlacensis dioecesis" to the 16th of 
December, (De Scotorum Fortitu-l p. 202). See Collections of the Shires of Aberdeen 
and Banff (Spalding Club) vol. i., p. 142. (R.)

life of this saint at Feb. G. (T.)

long as he lived. And the name of God and of Maighnenn was 
magnified by that miracle.

his place, lower down. But the Mart. Taml. justifies them in identifying Ultan and Tua, 
though not in making Ultan Ua Roeda a distinct individual : " Tua mac hUa Roida idem 
et Ultan Tighe-Tua [ of Tech-Tua ]. Ideo dicitur Tua, quia lapis in labiis ejus per omne 
tetmpus qttadrayesimce habebat ut non posset loqui, et inde Tua dictus est." T^tia signifies 
silence, and the epithet, Ultan the Silent, is explained by the legend given in this pas 
sage and transferred into the text above. The Felire of Aengus, however, seems to apply 
the character for taciturnity to lotharaaisc : 

^e "Chcce May the prayers of Tua protect ?e, 

mit labficu. Itarnasc who spoke not. 

The mixed calendar prefixed to the Drummond-Castle Missal has "Nat. Tn< Ilitlntrinriss 
et Emin." (R.) 


EIMHIN, Bishop, of Ross-glas, in Leinster, to the west of Cill-dara, 
on the brink of the Berbha. lamhnat, daughter of Sinell, was 
his mother. Eimhin was the son of Eoghan, son of Murchadh, 
of the race of Fiacha Muillethan, son of Eoghan Mor, son of 
Oilioll Olum. He was the brother of Corbmac, son of Eoghan, 
as stated in the Life of the same Corbmac, transcribed from the 
Book of Lecan. 1

Fail," as I have written at Colman, son of Leinin, at 24th of 
November. He was of the race of Tighernach, son of Oilioll 
Olum. 4 

1 Boole of Lecan. This Life, copied from the Book of Lecan, and rendered into Latin, 
is given in an abridged form by Colgan, at the 26th of March. The reference therein to 
St. Eimhin, or Eminus, is to be seen at chap. 3, (Actt. SS., p. 751 a). See the note on 
Cruimther Corbmac at the 1 3th of this month, p. 336 supra. (R.)

THE TWELVE PILGRIMS, of Inis Uachtair. 

LuCHAiR, 1 of Gill Elgraighe. In the Termann of Cenannas, in 
Meath, as the Oidheadh Breasail 2 states, [he was killed 3 ] by 
Diarmait,his father, and he was resuscitated afterwards by Becan. 

MOGHOROG, of Deirgne, son of Brachan, i.e., king of Britain, son 
of Brachameoc. Dina, daughter of the Saxon king, was his 
mother, and the mother of nine other saints. 


MERNOG, son of Decell, brother of Caisin, son of Decell ; and 
Coman, sister of Colum-cille, was the mother of both. 

MAELDUBH. There is a Maeldubh, of the race of Conall, son of 
Niall, i.e. 3 Maeldubh, son of Enan. There is also a Gill Mael- 
dubhain in Tir-Aedha, between Eas Ruaidh and the sea ; but 
there is no church there at present : however, they usually bury 
unbaptized infants there. 





TEMHNEN, Cook of Molua, of Cluain-ferta. [See Motheimneog. 4 ] 

MOCHUA, son of Lonan, of Tigh Mochua, in Laoighis, in Leinster. 
He was of the race of Eochaidh Finnfuathairt, from whom 
Brighit is descended. Fineacht, daughter of Loichin, son of 
Dioma Chiret, of Gill Chonaigh, was his mother.

Eugenius the mariner or traveller, is commemorated on the 26 Dec. in Marian O Gorman. 
In the Mart. Tamlacht. we find " Eugenii Peregrini" at 26 Dec.; so that it is probably by 
a mistake that this note was entered at Dec. 24. (R-) 

6 Seanain. The more recent hand adds l forte Fidelis, suggesting the familiar name 
Fidelis as a Latin equivalent for piaT>at. In the margin is " Mari." in the later hand, 
meaning that this saint occurs in Marian O Gorman. (R.)

MAELAN, Bishop. 
DICHOLL, son of Neman. 

IARLAITHE, Bishop, of Tuaim-da-TJalann, in Connacht. He was 

of the race of Conmac, son of Fergus, son of Ross, son of Rudh- 
raighe, from whom the Clanna-Rudhraighe are called ; and 
Mongfinn, daughter of Ciordubhan, of the Cinel Cinnenn, was 
his mother. He used to perform three hundred genuflexions 
every night, and three hundred genuflexions every day, as 
Cuimin, of Coindeire, states. Thus he says : 
" The noble larlaithe loves, 

A cleric who practised not penury, 
Three hundred genuflexions each night, 
Three hundred genuflexions each day." 

It was larlaithe that predicted every bishop that would come 
after him at Tuaim. And he predicted that Mael would come 
after the three heretical bishops who were in his city, &c. This 
is the quatrain 1 which speaks of the Mael, viz. : 

" The Mael the first powerful man." 
MOGENOG, Bishop, of Cill-dumha-gluinn, in the east of Bregia ; and 

Tigrid, sister of Patrick, was his mother. 

COMMAN, of Ross-Comain, in Magh Ai ; and of Leithghliim. There 
is a Leithghlionn in Leinster. He is of the race of Irial, son of 
Conall Cernach.

paae fine loco oculofitmi, * Clairenech, i.e. one born with a flat face, having no place 
for the eyes. This term, suggested by the word clem, a table, is an epithet frequently 
coupled with the names of saints, and seems to have been applied to those who, through con 
genital malformation, were born blind, or whose face was distinguished by great flatness. 
The words in S. Brogan s hymn on S. Brigid, bermachtnp clai fieri each, are rendered 
by Colgan, benedixit coecum (v. 21, Tr. Th. p. 516); and the parallel passage in 
Cogitosus has " oculos coeci nati aperuit" (cap. 12, Tr. Th. p. 520 a); which Animosus ren 
ders more fully " coecus a nativitate habens tabulatam faciem " (ii. c. 71, Tr. Th. p. 560 6).

[of Connor, i.e. Mac Nisi, whom the Felire of Aongus the Cele De

[I think this is the son of Aongabhann, because Aengus himself has 
nothing at this day, but only at March 11 and Jan. 20. This is 
the author of the Festilogium. 

Aongus son of Aongobhann, son of Oblein, says the prefatory Gloss 
on the Felire, of the Person, 1 who was of the Family of Cluain- 
h-Eidhneach, he is the same as Aongus Ua hOiblein. The matter 
is, therefore, to be thus reconciled by putting Aongus ua hOiblein 
at the 18th Feb. ; although this is against the authority of Marian 
O Gorman, who says, at the llth March, "Aongus ard 6 hEblen," 
[Aongus the noble, grandson of Oiblen]. Otherwise if he him 
self records his own day he cannot be the writer or author of the 
Martyrology, as he is commonly reputed.]

Maoltuile [he was an abbot, and I know not whether he was 

not a bishop], ... .29 May. 
[There is a Cill-Maoltuile, a parish church in Disert-Midhe, in the 
diocese of Meath. His baculus [or pastoral staff] works miracles on 
perjurers 1 before they go out of the church. His well, and his 
yellow bell, and his baculus and his statue, are there still. This is 
the first Maoltuile.]

2 Pcenitentiary. The word pennat>oip- is an Irish form of pcenitorium, for the Latm 
pcenitentiarium ; and the letters TTIp,. H. in the copy should probably be TTIL H., a contrac 
tion of the proper name TTiaet-Tltiain. Colgan, in one of his notes on St. Scdulius of 
DublTn, seems to refer to the name in question, where he says : " In pocnitentiario S.

3 Name. We must understand this, not as suggesting that Siollan of Gill Delgge was a 
contemporary of St. Paul, but that the Latin form Silvanus occurs in 2 Thess. i. 1, and 
in the Life of Livinus. (T.) Molanus styles S. Livinus " Archiepiscopus Scotorum," 
and adds, " Quod munus, cum aliquot annis magno fructu administrasset, reliquit Syluano 
archidiacono. 1 Indiculus Sanctor. Belgii, (Lovan. 1573). (R.)

End of the Martyrology 1 9 April, 1630. In the Convent of Friars 
of Dun-na-nGrall it was begun and finished. 


2 I 




All the primary names, that is, those of the saints whose commemo 
rations occur in the preceding Martyrology, whether from the original or 
supplemental hand, are printed in Roman letter, and to each the day of 
the festival is annexed, together with the number of the page where it is 
to be found, which, to prevent confusion, is within brackets. The name 
of the saint is accompanied,, when they are given in the work, by those 
of father or mother, and of church or region, together with the personal 
designation, which is denoted by an abbreviation. In cases where many 
individuals bear the same name, as, for instance, Colman, which is repeated 
above a hundred times, those are placed first whose parentage is recorded ; 
next, those whose churches only are mentioned ; then those who have 
a special epithet, each group in the secondary order of their additions, 
respectively ; after these, such as have an official title only ; and, lastly, 
those who have no distinctive mark. 

The secondaries, that is, the names of clerics or laymen who have no 
commemoration in this Martyrology, but occur in the text, or Notes, or 
Table, are printed in Italics, with the saint s name in parenthesis, under 
whose head each appears, or the number of the note, and the number of 
the page. These references are generally grouped at the end of each 

Thus this Index serves as an Alphabetical Calendar of the Saints of 
Ireland, as well as a guide to the Martyrology j and the inquirer can, at 
a glance, ascertain the parentage, church, degree, and festival-day of any 
individual concerning whom such or any of them are recorded. 

The abbreviations employed in this Index are 

A. Abbot. 

D. Deacon. 

P. Priest. 

An. Anchorite. 

d. daughter. 

Pm. Pilgrim. 

As. Abbess. 

K. King. 

s. son. 

B. Bishop. 

M. Martyr. 

V. Virgin. 

C. Confessor. 

n. note. 

= Latin equivalent. 




The primaries, that is, the names of the churches or districts, which are 
directly associated in the Martyrology with the names of the saints, are 
accompanied by those names in Italic letter, and the numbers of the 
pages. With these are given such topographical additions as occur in the 
text. These additions and all other local names are regarded as second 
aries, and are also accompanied by the saints names under which they 
are found, together with the pagination ; but may be easily distinguished 
by their having the saints names in brackets. The student is thus 
furnished with the ready means, as far as the substance of the work 
provides, of ascertaining the patron and situation of each church, as well 
as the various churches which exist in any region or province. 


This Index contains such words as do not come under the preceding 
classes, and the references are to the primary saints names, and the 
numbers of the pages. The Introduction with its Appendix is indicated 
by Intr., and its pagination in Roman numerals.
