About the Author

Brendan Lehane (b. London 1931) studied at Eton College and King's College, Cambridge. Founder of Image Magazine, he was also been feature editor of Town Magazine, and contributed articles for magazines in England, Ireland and the USA.


"'An enchanting book... This account of Celtic homogeneity as expressed in three great men, whose interior journeys led them outwards, far from Ireland their home, to bring to England, to Scotland, and to Europe civilization and sanctity, is a delight.' Anne Freemantle; '... an enlightening book. Three men of genius have been taken out of their legend and given historical status. And by showing what two of them did in the most obscure period of European history, post-Roman and Merovingian Gaul, Lehane has made us more knowledgeable about these times.' Padraic Colum; '... a welcome addition to the existing books about this ever fresh and virile, and often unashamedly magical, Early Celtic World. It makes for absorbing reading.' Ann Moray"
