Saint Comgall was born on the banks of Larne Lough at Magheramourne on the east coast of Ulster in present–day County Antrim. The monastery he founded at Bangor became world famous and, at his death, numbered over 3,000 students. There are no ruins there today, but the presence of God still lives on at the site of the great monastery which was once known as “The Light of the World”. Why did Comgall build his great monastery at Bangor? How did Comgall carry on relations with the tribes that Saint Patrick had evangelised in the fifth century? How did he build upon the foundations of the Apostle of Ireland? Did the sixth century Church have similar beliefs to those held by the Roman Catholic Church of today, or did they have a simple form of Catholicism?
