(Cynfarch) (Saint) (September 8) (5th century) One or two chapels or churches in the West country are dedicated to him, and there is a place-name commemorating him. He is said to have been a Scottish chieftain, and to have afterwards come to Wales, where, remaining in the world, he sanctified himself and acquired such popular repute for holiness as after his death to have heen at once canonised by the clergy and people. He, it would seem, married a grand-daughter of the famous Brychan of Brecknock.

(Saints) Martyrs (July 8) (7th century) Irish missionaries who successfully evangelised South Germany. Pope John V consecrated Saint Killian first Bishop of Wurzburg. The Saint had converted Gerbert, the local Duke or chieftain; but made an enemy of the heathen Geilana, who lived with the Duke as his wife, though not really such. She caused Saint Chillian to be assassinated, and with him Coloman, a priest, and Totnan, a deacon (A.D. 688). Their relics, a century later, were enshrined in his Cathedral by Saint Burchard, a successor of Saint Killian.

(Kewe) (Saint) Virgin (February 8) (Date uncertain) Marked in the Exeter Martyrology as commemorated on February 8. She is probably the same as Saint Ciwa, a sixth or seventh century Saint venerated in Monmouthshire. A Welsh Calendar gives the name Kigwe or Kigwoe. It is also written Ciwg and Cwick. But she is certainly other than the Saint Keyna who has left her name to Keynsham in Somersetshire.

(Kiernan, Kyran, Ciaran, Pyran) (Saint) Bishop (March 5) (5th century) Styled “The First-Born of the Saints of Ireland.” Born in Ossory of noble parents, some time in the fourth century, he preceded Saint Patrick, with whom he associated himself in the Apostolate of Ireland. Either by Saint Patrick, or, as some say, by the Pope of the time himself, Saint Kieran was consecrated First Bishop of Ossory. From his foundation of a monastery at Saighir (King’s County) he became known as Saint Kiaran of Saighir. Various traditions speak of his having crossed over to Cornwall and of his being identical with the Saint Piran there venerated as a local Saint. Saint Kyran died, it would appear, at a very advanced age.
