Tales of St Columba

Tales of St Columba

A novel by

Nearly fifteen hundred years ago a man of royal blood was bom in Gartan in the heart of Donegal in the north of Ireland. To the world outside he is known as St Columba but the Irish preferred to call him Colm Cille-the Dove of the Church. He was prince and saint, scholar and statesman, and for centuries after his death people told stories about his nobility, his courage, his pride and his miracles.

Why did this prince become a holy monk? Why did this monk leave the country he loved to exile himself on the windswept Scottish island of Iona? The life of the historical Columba is as marvellous as the stories of wonder told about him and Eileen Dunlop, one of Scotland's leading children's authors, is the ideal guide to both the legend and the man.
