Memorial

Profile

Evangelist in Ireland, especially around the city of Cashel, and may have been a bishop. Noted as an excellent preacher being “by race an Angle, in speech an angel.” Evangelized in Bavaria (in modern Germany) with Saint Erhard of Regensburg. Suffered from arthritis in his back and hips. Pilgrim to Jerusalem, dying on the journey home. Some accounts list him as archbishop of Cashel, but that diocese did not exist in his day, and this is apparently an inference by later writers.
