St ADOMNAN

Christian Saint

Also known as ADAMNAN-OF-IONA, ADAMNAN, EUNAN

Patron Saint of the Diocese of Raphoe in Ireland

The Irish Abbot of Iona, an island in the Inner Hebrides. He was ninth in succession from distant relative St COLUMBA The Founder.

Life was probably a bit boring on Iona so this Abbot — being something of a scholar — filled in his time by writing a biography of The Founder.

As well as cooking up a primitive version of the Geneva Convention, his good works also included the refurbishment of Raphoe Monastery in Ireland.

Things went a bit sour when he attempted to replace Celtic Catholic customs with those of Rome, which made him so unpopular he went on an extended preaching vacation.
