Taking Root in Emly
We’re not sure of St. Ailbe’s dates. He probably overlapped with St. Patrick – 5th century. Most likely he became a Christian while in Wales where the Faith spread among Roman settlers after Emperor Constantine approved the religion for his empire..
Ireland was thinly populated, but thick with trees and lakes. Ailbe probably set up a hermit’s cell on the lake island at Imleach Iubhair. Over time, others would have joined him and a little monastery set up. Across the centuries, this grew in numbers and fame
Between 1050 and 1150 A.D. a major change took place in Church life Ireland: it went from being base on monasteries to being diocese-based. This meant abbots were replaced by bishops, and monasteries replaced by cathedrals and scattered parish churches
giving us the pattern with which we are now
