ST. LOMAN, OR LUMAN, B. C.
JOCELIN calls him a nephew of St. Patrick, by a
sister. He was at least a disciple of that saint, and first bishop of
Trim, in Meath. Port-Loman, a town belonging to the Nugents in
West-meath, takes its name from him, and honors his memory with
singular veneration. St. Forchern, son of the lord of that territory,
was baptized by St. Loman, succeeded him in the bishopric of Trim,
and is honored among the saints in Ireland, both on this same day and
on the 11th of October. See Colgan on the 17th Febr Usher’s
Antiqu. ad ann. 433.
