Irish Saints

Here is a brief calendar of Irish Saints that I have compiled. You are most welcome to use it and post it to your own LJs (with reference to the original post :)) And, of course, if you have anything to add -- please let me know!
All of these Saints lived between the 4th and the 8th centuries A.D., so they are venerated by both Orthodox Catholics and Roman Catholics.
