This is by no means an exhaustive collection of saints. Many newly canonised saints may be missing and many local saints for which I could only find scant information on have been left out. But this is a substantial collection nonetheless.

The names of the saints are listed as they would have appeared in the time the saint lived (to the best I can determine). Click on the saint’s name in the list in the sidebar to see more information about that saint. If you wish to see saints for a different date, select that date below. Or you can select a saint by their name or by places they are associated with.


Information has been gathered predominantly from the following books:

D’Arcy, Mary Ryan. The Saints of Ireland. St. Paul, MN: Irish American Cultural Institute. 1974.
