History of St. Comgall

St Comgall lived over 1400 years ago.

He was born in 517AD

He died in 602AD

St Comgall was born in County Antrim

After a career as a soldier he wanted to become a monk and studied in County Laois.

When he was about 40 he and a group of friends travelled to a small island on Lough Erne in County Fermanagh to live close to God.

Students from all over the world came to be taught by St Comgall

There were so many people coming that soon they had to make new monasteries that could cope with all the new intakes.

These were not just in Antrim but Kerry and also Rathlin Island

For 50 years St Comgall worked in one of the most famous Monasteries in Europe.

This was in Bangor County Down.

Apart from his teaching St Comgall has miracles attributed to him.

He has helped some people to regain their sight.

His emblem is a fish and he is usually drawn as a monk holding a stone to whom an angel brings a fish.

Comgall’s monastery became the target for Viking raids and they destroyed the church.

The relics of St Comgall were then moved to Antrim. These were received by St Malachy and that’s why the secondary school in Antrim was called St Malachy’s

St Comgall of our school. Help us we Pray To Remember Gods love in our lives every day.

St Comgall’s Feast Day is the 10th May
