St Mel



St Mel died in 488. He is said to have been a Briton who came to Ireland with Patrick, with whom he worked until he was ordained at Ardagh, Co. Longford. He is one of the earliest Irish saints and gave the religious veil to Brigid. The Cathedral in Longford Town is dedicated to St. Mel and his feast day is celebrated on 7th February.
