St Kevin


St Kevin, a native of Leinster, grew up in Kilnamanagh where he received his early religious formation. Wishing to become a hermit, he crossed the mountains to Glendalough and settled at Disert Caoimhghin at the foot of the upper lake. Disciples gathered around him and gradually the great monastic settlement grew and spread throughout the glen after his death in 618.
