Description

Born in Ireland in 521 A.D., at a time when it was the land of saints and scholars, St Colmcille is the son of the princess of Leinster. He leaves his native land after his part in a battle between the King of Connacht and the High King of Ireland. He settles in Iona, a small island off the coast of Scotland where he founds a monastery. St Colmcille spends the rest of his life developing the monastery at Iona and is so highly regarded by the Scottish that he plays the role of peacemaker whenever there is a quarrel between clans. This is the story of St Colmcille, member of royalty, saint, scholar and diplomat.
