Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume VIII: August.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
August 15
St. Mac Cartin, Aid or Aed, Bishop of Clogher, Confessor in Ireland
 
HE is titular saint of that diocess. He is said to have been descended from the noble family of the Arads, 1 but was more ennobled by his great virtues. He was one of St. Patrick’s earliest disciples, and placed by him in the see of Clogher. He died in the year 506, on the 24th of March, and is honoured on that day, and on the 15th of August. His acts in Colgan are of little authority. See Ware by Harr. t. 1, p. 176. Colgan ad 24. Mart. Usher Antiq. Brit.  1
 
Note 1. The sept of the Arads took their name from Fiachus Araidh, who was king of Ulster about the year of Christ 240, and was the founder of many potent families, and also gave name to the territory of Dalaradia. [back]
