Saint Brendan the Voyager (6th cent) founded several monasteries in Ireland and became Abbot of the largest, Clonfert. He traveled as a missionary to the Scottish Islands, possibly Wales, and was dubbed 'Brendan the Voyager.' The early 9th cent romance "The Voyage of Brendan" portrayed him as a discoverer of far western lands. The account proves that Irish voyagers visited America as early as the 8th cent, before the Vikings, but not that St Brendan himself made such voyages. (May 16)
