Saint Cronan the Priest, January 30

January 30 is the commemoration of a Saint Cronan, who is recorded in the calendars as having been a priest. Nothing else is known of him, as Canon O' Hanlon explains:

St. Cronan, a Priest.

The name of Cronan, also designated as a Priest, is found in the Martyrology of Tallagh, at this day. We are not informed as to his domicile, but he probably flourished before  the tenth century. We read, likewise, in the Martyrology of Donegal, regarding Cronan as having a festival, on this day.
