The Life of Fursa (Author: [unknown])

section 15

So when he had finished these things, it occurred to


him to leave his monastery and the care thereof to (his brother) Fullan22 and to the other archpriests, namely Gobbán and Dicuill, and he was fain to go, free from all mundane matters, to a stead that was safer. So Fursa and Ultán23 quitted the monastery and went into a hermitage; and there they remained a year, labouring with their hands and in compunction of heart and prayer.24
