Enda

Irish - A saint. Son of Aiobhfhinn and Conall Dearg. Brother of Fanchea. When he was given land for a monastery on the island of Inishmore and had no boat in which to reach it, he and his followers were transported there by a rock which floated. He drove the horses of Corban, the local chieftain, over the tops of the waves to convince him that he should accept Christianity. At times, called Enda, Eanna, Eanna, Einne or Einne.
