Saint Ciarán of Tigh-na-Gortigh, July 19

One of the many Irish saints known only from the recording of his name on our calendars is commemorated on July 19. In the case of the otherwise anonymous Saint Ciarán, his name is linked to a locality but this too is unable to be identified, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

St. Ciaran, of Tigh-na-Gortigh.

Veneration was given, at the 19th of July, as we find recorded in the Martyrology of Tallagh, to Ciaran o Tigh h. nGortigh. This place to which allusion is made has not been identified. He is entered in the Martyrology of Donegal, as Ciaran, of Tigh-na-Gortigh.
