Ciaran of Cluain

Irish - Son of Beoan and Darerca. As a young man he restored to life a dead horse. When he entered a monastery he took with him a cow that provided enough milk for all the community. Once, when a wayward husband denied adultery before the saint, the man's head fell off, but he stayed with Ciaran in the monastery for many years. He caused golden hair to grow on the bald head of Maireann when she appealed for help in his name and performed many other miracles before dying at the age of thirty-three. Also referred to as Ciaran of Cluain, Kieran, Kieran, Ciaran of Saighir or Ciaran.
