Menology of England and Wales – Saint Tigernake, Bishop, Confessor, 549 or 550

main article for Saint Tigernach of ClogherArticle

At Clones, in Ireland, the deposition of Saint Tigernake, Confessor, Bishop of Clogher aud Clones.

This Saint was a native of Ireland, who came to Great Britain for his religious education, and is said to have been a disciple of Monennius. On his return to his country he was made Bishop of Clogher, to which he united the district of Clones.

The place where the Saint was educated is called Rosnat, and is generally supposed to be Saint David’s, in the vale of Ross, and Monennius is thought to have been his master’s name. Lanigan, however, maintains that Rosnat is Whithern, or Candida Casa, in Strathclyde, and that Monennius is the same as Ninian; so that what is meant is that Tigernake was a pupil of the school or monastery of Saint Ninian at Whithern. This is also the opinion of Forbes in Historians of Scotland.
