Saint Ronan, son of Magh, July 15

Yesterday we looked at one of the many Irish saints called Colmán and saw that, despite having a patronymic appended to the recording of his name in the calendars, he could not be identified further. Today we are once again in this position with a saint called Ronan, son of Magh. Canon O'Hanlon can bring only the barest details:

St. Ronan, Son of Magh.

In the Martyrology of Tallagh, at this date, there is an entry Ronani mic Magi. Veneration was given to Ronan, son of Magh, at the 15th of July, as we find inserted in the Martyrology of Donegal.
