Saint Comgall Ua Sarain, August 26

Another saint shrouded in obscurity is commemorated on August 26. Canon O'Hanlon is able only to recount the recording of the name of Saint Comgall Ua Sarain at this date:

St. Comgall Ua Sarain.

The Book of Leinster and the published Martyrologies of Tallagh record a festival in honour of Comgall U. Sarain, at the 26th of August. His place and period are unknown. At the same date, in the Martyrology of Donegal, is the entry of Comhgall Ua Sarain.
