Saint Fachanan

14 August, OS 
 
from Wikipedia:  

Fachtna mac Mongaig (Fachanan) was the founder of the monastery of Rosscarbery (Ros Ailithir), County Cork. He died around 600. His monastery became the principal monastery of west Cork, and later had a famous Scripture school known as the School of Ross; he appointed the famous St. Brendan as one of its first teachers. It flourished for three hundred years and survived in some form until the coming of the Normans to Ireland. It was the center from which the Diocese of Ross developed.

Fachtna was born at Tulachteann, and was one of the pupils of Saint Ita. Before establishing the monastic school of Ross, he founded the monastery of Molana on an island in the Blackwater, near Youghal. He suffered for a time from blindness, from which he recovered at the intercession of Saint Ita's sister, who was about to give birth to Saint Mochoemog. Fachtna was revered as a "wise and upright man", with a great gift for preaching; Saint Cuimin of Connor said of him that he was "generous and steadfast, fond of preaching to the people and saying nothing that was base or displeasing to God".

In response to a Cheap FIFA Coins user s question on Twitter, CD Projekt Red community lead Marcin Momot confirmed in a tweet that there is no level cap in The Witcher 3 This means that at least in theory players can unlock every skill that Geralt has www.fastfifacoins.com available to him.Related: What is a witcher? Everything you need to know before diving into The Witcher 3Of course, anyone who has played the game will know that this is easier said than done The Witcher 3 doesn t exactly dole out heaps of experience from quests, and while you do get some experience from fighting monsters, it would still be a long road to max out every skill tree.http://www.fastfifacoins.com/Fifa16coins/
