ST. MAC-CARTIN, C. OTHERWISE CALLED AID OR AED, BISHOP OF CLOGHER IN IRELAND

IS titular saint of that diocess. He is said to have been descended from the noble family of the Arads,* but was more ennobled by his great virtues. He was one of St. Patrick’s earliest disciples, and placed by him in the see of Clogher. He died in the year 506, on the 24th of March, and is honored on that day, and on the 15th of August. His acts in Colgan are of little authority. See Ware by Harr. t. 1, p. 176. Colgan ad 24 Mart. Usher Antiq. Brit.
