Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume II: February.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
February 17
St. Loman, or Luman, Bishop in Ireland, Confessor
 
JOCELIN calls him a nephew of St. Patrick, by a sister. He was at least a disciple of that saint, and first bishop of Trim, in Meath. Port-Loman, a town belonging to the Nugents in Westmeath, takes its name from him, and honours his memory with singular veneration. St. Forcherne, son of the lord of that territory, was baptized by St. Loman, succeeded him in the bishopric of Trim, and is honoured among the saints in Ireland, both on this same day and on the 11th of October. See Colgan on the 17th Febr. Usher’s Antiqu. ad ann. 433.  1
