English & Irish Sharing a Feast Day

June 1 commemorates Bl John Storey, an English lawyer martyred for the faith, and St Ronan, an Irish missionary honoured chiefly in Brittany and in a little village in Scotland. I mentioned both of them a few years ago here. The basics are the same but a couple of the links are broken. The St Ronan's Tattoo is still a going concern but whatever it was I linked to back in 2003 that was supposed to tell you all about it isn't there any more. Try this link to the St Ronan's Border Games instead.

(And once again, I really have no evidence that this is the same St Ronan as the Breton St Ronan. But it looks like a great celebration anyway.)
