‘This book will be of value to anyone looking at early Irish saints and their cults; and when there seems no end to interest in a fanciful “Celtic Spirituality,” it is refreshing to look at a book like this which shows just how little we know about the period, and how grounded those “Celtic” Christians were in the realities of land, family, power, law, and church government', Thomas J. O’Loughlin, Catholic Historical Review.

‘ … a significant contribution to medieval Irish ecclesiastical history', Colman Etchingham, Studia Hibernica.
