Aedh planned to kidnap a girl from his brother’s household to force the issue but Illathan, bishop of Rathlihen, Offay, talked him out.
He stayed with the bishop to study and have a new life until he served as a Bishop himself. Aedh later founded a monastery at Cill-air in Westmreath. He is said to have miraculously healed St. Brigid of Ireland of headache.
