Saint Seighein, August 24

Another saint known only from the recording of his name on the Irish calendars is Saint Seighein, whose feast is recorded on August 24, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

St. Segin or Seighein.

Scant justice has been meted to many of our holy men, in human records; although their careers were not unnoted by traits of a sublime and noble character, during their life-time. The Martyrologies of Tallagh and of Donegal register Segin or Seighein, as having been venerated at the 24th of August; but, without giving further information regarding him.
