S. EUGENIUS, BISHOP IN IRELAND

THE first establishment of the see of Derry* was at a place called Ardfrath, on the river Derg,† of which this saint was the first bishop. He was an excellent and assiduous preacher, and is said to have been of the royal blood of the kings of Leinster. He died on this day in 618, and was buried in his own church-yard, over whose sepulchre a chapel was afterward built. Other writers place his death in 570. See Usher, Ind. Chron. ad an. 570; and Ware’s bishops, p. 286.
