ST. FINIAN, CALLED WININ BY THE WELSH, B. C.

HE was born in Ireland about the beginning of the sixth century, travelled abroad for his spiritual improvement, and returning home, founded the monastery of Maghbile. He was at length chosen bishop, and since his happy death, is honored as chief patron of Ulster in Ireland. See Colgan, Usher, and Britannia Sancta.
