St Brendan


St Brendan was from Kerry, born in 486 A.D. He studied at Clonard under Saint Finnian. His name is connected with many places in Kerry including Ardfert and Mount Brandon. He visited Scotland, reaching the Hebrides and, possibly, places beyond. In 568 he founded the monastery in Clonfert, where he died in 578.

Clonfert is a place of pilgrimage and healing today and is the site of Emmanuel House of Providence.
