St Berrihert (839) may have been the grandson of a Saxon prince who came, with St Colman, to Ireland after the Synod of Whitby in 664. He and many others came to Tullylease and founded a monastery renowned for its artwork in metal. St Berehert’s stone dated 800 has a remarkable Greek cross with inscription in Greek and Latin.
