Saint Aedh, June 27

Canon O'Hanlon brings the details of an obscure saint, Aedh, commemorated on the Irish calendars on June 27:

St. Aedha or Aedh.

The Martyrology of Tallagh registers the name of Aedha, at the 27th of June. In the copy of an Irish Calendar, now preserved in the Royal Irish Academy's Library, he is called St Aodh, the Fair, or White, son to Lugack. He is alluded to by Father John Colgan, as St. Aidus, Confessor, placed at the 27th of June, in the list of Irish Festivals. In the Martyrology of Donegal at this date, we have the entry of Aedh.
