Saint Sedrach, August 22

Another obscure name is found on the Irish calendars at August 22 - Saint Sedrach. Canon O'Hanlon records that the Martyrology of Tallaght describes him as a bishop, but otherwise has no other information to offer:

St. Sedrach, Bishop.

The published Martyrologies of Tallagh and of Donegal register Sedrach, at the 22nd of August. The former Calendar designates him as a bishop, and this is found, likewise, in that copy of the Tallagh Martyrology, contained in the Book of Leinster, at this same date. The see over which he presided is not known, nor the date for his episcopacy.
