Saint Eoghan or Eugene of Ardstraw was born to Irish Catholics in Leinster Co. where Christianity was first established in Ireland. While he was in school in Clones, Eoghan was captured by pirates and brought to Britain. After he escaped, he studied at St. Ninian's monastery in Scotland to become a priest. Then he returned to Ireland and established the Abbey of Kilnamanagh and was the first bishop of Ardstraw. He’s known for his sanctity, learning, and miracles, one being while traveling through a forest reciting the psalms, his attendant and the trees around him answered “Amen.”
