One of the first native bishops of Ireland, St. Kieran knew St. Patrick, who gave him a bell that would ring in the spot where St. Kieran was to build a small hut for himself. That spot became the monastery at Saighir, a well-known spiritual center. According to legend, his first followers were animals, who also helped him build the monastery.
