Saint Soadbair, June 26

At June 26 the Irish calendars contribute the name of yet another obscure saint, Soadbair. Apart from telling us that our saint was a bishop, there are no other details recorded, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

St. Soadbair or Soadbar, Bishop.

The Martyrologies of Tallagh and of Donegal register a festival at the 26th of June in honour of Soadbair or Soadbar, Bishop. His place is not mentioned.
