Also known as Cainnech or Canice, Kenneth was a shepherd before being ordained in 545, then blessed in Rome a few years later. A friend of St. Columba and a student of St. Finnian, he founded his principle monastery in Aghaboe and became one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland. He was also known for writing a commentary on the four Gospels. There is legend that says Saint Kenneth chased away all the mice on an Island and ordered all the birds to stop chirping during Mass. It also says that while he lived in seclusion, a stag would hold his Bible in its antlers so Cainnech could hold his hands up while praying.
