Saint Kevin of Glendalough

from 15.00

(circa 498-618)


Patron of Dublin, Ireland, blackbirds,
and a long life

Kevin was born to nobility in Ireland, and known there as “Cóemgen,” which means “gentle one.” He became a hermit in Glendalough and founded the rst monastery there. Once, while he held his arms outstretched in silent prayer, a blackbird landed in his open hand, built a small nest and laid its eggs. The gentle hermit held that position in stillness until the edglings hatched. Reportedly, St.

Kevin lived to be 120 years old.
