List of Irish Saints in December

Here is the calendar of Irish Saints by feast day. Anglicizations (where applicable) are in parentheses following the Irish version. For information on the origins and meanings of these names, see the alphabetical list . For more information on the saints themselves, visit Catholic.org’s online Irish Saint database.  Keep in mind that many of these saints lived in the earliest years of Christianity– (i.e., St. Patrick lived from 387-461 a.d.) and there isn’t much in the way of written records surviving about them. If you don’t find any information about a saint you’re looking for; don’t be discouraged, there just may be no surviving information out there.
