Abbot of Iona, Columba belonged to the Clan O'Donnell, and was of royal descent.

It is perhaps a fitting tribute to Colmcille that the earliest existing example of a Celtic illuminated manuscript is the Cathach of St. Columba — written in his own hand. The magnificent Book of Kells was produced at Iona and the brilliant Book of Durrow was created at another of his monasteries.

St. Columba Tartan "tells the story of St. Columba’s voyage from Ireland to Iona, whilst symbolising the isle itself..."

Irish Culture and Customs presents Colum from a "western persepctive"

  These are a few of the sources I came across when researching St. Columba. If you know of any sites that you think would be appropriate here, please let me know. (Also, since updating all the links on this site would be a full-time job, my apologies in advance for any that are out of date.)
