St. Blaan of Ireland, Bishop
 
[Disciple of St. Congall in Ireland, and afterwards Bishop of Kinngaradha among the Picts in Scotland.]  HE made a voyage of devotion to Rome, and died about the year 446. The place where he was buried is called from him Dunblain, and was always an episcopal see until the change of religion. St. Blaan is honoured on the 19th of July and the 10th of August. We have several sacred hymns of his, instructions for catechumens, and other pious works. See Colgan MSS. ad. 10 Aug. Dempster, Leland, Tanner, and his life by G. Newton, archdeacon of Dunblain in 1505.  1
