Book of Saints – Fintan – 3 January


FINTAN (Saint) Abbot. (January 3) (6th century) Doone (Limerick), which honours Saint Fintan as its Patron, was the scene of most of this great Saint’s labours and miracles. His holy well is still venerated there. He was a disciple of Saint Comgall at Ben-Chor, and in his later life appears to have founded one or more monasteries.
