Considered one of the three patron saints of Ireland, little is known about Colum Cille, although stories about him range from his founding a monastery on the island of Iona to starting a war by copying another man's book. Desmond Forristal details the main events of the saint's career. He also includes the best-known tales and legends, which have come down to us through the centuries. He paints a picture of a man to be reckoned with - fiery, idealistic, learned, a respecter of nature and lover of humankind, a fearless preacher and missionary. Above all, he shows us a man who lived his life in the presence of God.
