St. Kevin, also known as Coemgen in Ireland, lived with monks from age 12. After being ordained he came to live a hermit’s life in Glendalough Ireland (meaning glen of two lakes) . There are many stories of his connection with animals, a blackbird is even said to have made a nest in his prayerfully outstretched hands. St. Kevin eventually left his life of solitude to build a monastery and teach the people of Ireland about God. His life is surrounded by many extravagant miracles.
