ST. BLAAN, DISCIPLE OF ST. CONGALL IN IRELAND AND
AFTERWARDS BISHOP OF KINNGARADHA, AMONG THE PICTS IN SCOTLAND
HE made a voyage of devotion to Rome, and died
about the year 446. The place where he was buried is called from him
Dunblain, and was always an episcopal see until the change of
religion. St. Blaan is honored on the 19th of July and the 10th of
August. We have several sacred hymns of his, instructions for
catechumens, and other pious works. See Colgan MSS. ad 10 Aug.
Dempster, Leland, Tanner, and his life by G. Newton, archdeacon of
Dunblain in 1505.
