school of Ross

Founded by Saint Fachtna, and famous for its study of Sacred Scripture and its liberal education. Saint Brendan the Navigator was a teacher there. In 1127 Toirdhealbach O'Conor laid waste the land and the Anglo-Normans under FitzStephen completed the devastation. After this date, all record of the school is lost.
