September 25 - St Finbarr


Today is the feast of St Finbarr, the patron saint of Cork, monk and missionary, and possibly bishop. The isle of Barra in the Hebrides may have been the site of one or more of his missionary journeys and be named for him.

Wikipedia has a little life of him here.

And that's St Finbarr's Pipe Band from Cork up at the top of this post playing their championship medley in 2010.
