Saint Brynach Abbot

Reposed 6 century Remembered April 7

St Brynach founded several monastic oratories in South West Wales. His most famous place was at Nevern, north of St Davids. Nevern was an important religious centre; early carved crosses dating back to the early fifth century and gravestones inscribed in both Latin and Ogham can still be seen. The holy well near Henry’s Moat is now lost in undergrowth.
