Biography: Saint Abban was an Irish prince. He was the nephew of Saint Ibar and son of King Cormac of Leinster. In modern County Wexford and Ferns Saint Abban founded many churches. This was in the Old district of Ui Cennselaigh. The main monastery was in Adamstown, Ireland, called Magheranoidhe. Part of this monastery’s fame is because of a different Abban, according to some records, the Abban of New Ross. Saint Abban served as abbot at Kill-Abban Avvey in Leinster until March 16, 1620. Adamstown was once called Abbanstown, and he is revered there.
