Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Loman, or Luman, Bishop in Ireland, Confessor


Jocelin calls him a nephew of Saint Patrick, by a sister. He was at least a disciple of that saint, and first bishop of Trim, in Meath. Port-Loman, a town belonging to the Nugents in Westmeath, takes its name from him, and honours his memory with singular veneration. Saint Forcherne, son of the lord of that territory, was baptized by Saint Loman, succeeded him in the bishopric of Trim, and is honoured among the saints in Ireland, both on this same day and on the 11th of October.
