The Four Sons of Ercan, August 9

One of the interesting groups of Irish saints is commemorated on August 9. In this case we are told that there are four males and that they are the sons of Ercan, but there are no other details of either the father or the sons, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

The Four Sons of Ercan, or Ercain.

The Martyrologies of Tallagh and of Donegal register the Four Sons of Ercan or Ercain, at the 9th of August. Whose sons these were does not clearly appear.
