Description: South Dublin Village Walks - Newcastle Step 11: St. Finian's Well. St. Finian of Clonard was born around 520 AD in Myshall Co. Carlow, and has been described as the “Tutor of the Saints” due to his having taught Saints Colmcille of Iona and Ciarán of Clonmacnoise among many others. He established a monastery in Clonard Co. Meath and spent his life travelling widely and teaching scripture in Wales and France. He taught in St. Brigid’s monastery, and she presented him with a ring on his departure.
