Colman of Cloyne

A Study

By Paul MacCotter

This book attempts to give a complete history of the cult of Colm?n of Cloyne (560AD), patron of the diocese of Cloyne, Co. Cork. Scholars of the Early Irish Church will be interested in what it reveals about general aspects of that period quite apart from its historical relevance for the early history of a large part of Co. Cork. It details the hitherto undocumented history of one of the leading dynasties of early Munster. A new translation of the saint's poems by Professor Donnchadh ? Corr?in appears in an appendix.
