ST. NENNUS OR NEHEMIAS, ABBOT,

WAS of the family of the O’Birns. In 654 he succeeded St. Endeus upon his demise in the government of the great monastery of the isles of Aran, which formerly were two, before the name of Bute was given to one of them. The festival of St. Nennus has been always kept with great solemnity in many parts of Ireland. See Colgan in MSS., ad 14 Jun.
