(d. c.550),

Irish monk and bishop (?). Very little is known of this saint. He is said to have belonged to a noble family in Galway and to have been a disciple of Enda. He founded a monastery at Cluain Fois; later he moved two miles away to Tuam, of which he is asserted to have been bishop. His monastery had a high reputation for learning: Brendan of Clonfert and Colman of Munster are claimed as disciples. His shrine was kept at a chapel in Tuam until 1830. Feast: 6 June.
