St. Kevin

Kevin or Coemgen was born around 498. His name means fair-begotten. He was baptized by St. Cronan. He studied under the monks from the age of twelve and became a monk. He founded the monastery of Glendalough, which became famous throughout Ireland. In 544, he visited St. Columba at Usneach and then retired to solitude for four years, but returned to Glendalough when his monks wished him to be abbot. St. Kevin died on June 3, 618. Glendalough became an episcopal see, but later was incorporated with Dublin. Today, visitors still enjoy seeing the remains of St. Kevin’s original monastery. His feast day is June 3.
