Saint Modan, Missionary in Scotland,

Founder & Abbot of Dryburgh Abbey,

& hermit in Dumbarton, Scotland

from Ireland (+6th century)

February 4

Saint Modan was the son of an Irish chieftain. He became a monk and built a chapel at Dryburgh, Scotland, in 522 which he used as a base for several years. This later became the site of a monastery: Dryburgh Abbey.

He was a Missionary in the Falkirk and Stirling areas, and along the Forth, in Scotland continuing until he was elected abbot, a post which he accepted reluctantly. After a number of years he resigned and became a hermit, settling in the Dumbarton area, where he eventually died. His relics were enshrined at Rosneath, Scotland.
