(Scarthin) (Saint) (January 6) (6th century) While a youth, Saint Schotin left Ireland to become a disciple of Saint David in Wales. On his return to his native country he for many years led the life of an anchorite at Mount Mairge (Queen’s County), and practiced heroic penance. He founded a school for youths at Kilkenny, no mean achievement at that place and time.
