Ciaran was the first Irish saint. Born in the 6th century, Ciaran
felt the presence of God even though he did not know His name. Called
to Rome as a young man, Ciaran was ordained a bishop and sent back to Ireland
by Patrick himself. Patrick promised to come to Ireland to tell the
people about God but he wanted Ciaran to go now. Ciaran went back
to Ireland and lived as a hermit. But he was not alone for long.
