St. Colman of Lindisfarne was a spiritual student and disciple of Saint Columba. He later became a monk at Iona and also a Bishop in Lindisfarne, England in 661 AD. He became a friend of King Oswy of Northumbria and defended Celtic church practices against Saint Agilbert.

When King Oswy insisted on the use of Latin rites, Colman refused and resigned. In 664 AD, he led a group of English and Irish monks to Scotland. He founded the abbey and diocese of Mayo.
