Magraidain, Augustin, was canon in the monastery of All Saints' Island, in Lough Ree, at the end of the 14th century. He wrote an important work, Vitae Sanctorum Hiberniae, frequently referred to by Colgan, a copy of which is said to be preserved in the library of the Convent of St. Francis, Dublin. Magraidain also compiled a chronicle known as Annales Insulenses. He died in 1405, and was buried on the island (now a peninsula) where he had passed so much of his life.
