The Irish saint Féichín (died 664) is generally associated with the monastery of Fore in modern county Westmeath. His hagiography also makes references to his cult among the Luigne of Connacht (modern County Sligo). However, the documentary sources makes almost no mention of what appears to be a local cult in west Connemara, centred on High Island, and possibly another at St Vigean’s in Scotland. This paper will consider the broader evidence for the saint’s cult.
