April 21

St. Malrubius, Martyr

HE led an austere monastic life in the mountainous country of Abur-Crossain, in the county of Ross in Ireland, when certain Norway pirates landing there in 721, for attempting to preach Christ to them, he was massacred by them with many wounds, in the eightieth year of his age, probably on the 21st of April, his festival in Connaught.
