Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume VIII: August.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
August 4
St. Luanus, or Lugid or Molua, Abbot in Ireland
 
HE was educated at Benchor under St. Coemgall, and, as St. Bernard assures us, founded one hundred monasteries in Ireland. Among these the chief was that of Cluain-fearta Molua, 1 on the borders of Ossory and Queen’s county, in Leinster. St. Lugid prescribes a monastic rule which was long observed in Ireland; in it he enjoined the strictest silence and recollection, and forbid women being ever allowed to approach the church of the monks. He passed to immortal glory on the 4th of August, 622. See Usher’s Antiquities, &c.  1
 
Note 1. There was another Cluain Fearta, corruptly called Clonfert, in Connaught, founded by St. Brendan. [back]
