Cathaldus, Saint, was born near Lismore, and flourished in the 7th century; he was one of the many ecclesiastics that spread the fame of Ireland on the Continent. He travelled to Italy and the Holy Land, was made Bishop of Tarentum, and settled for a time on the shores of Lake Leman. An interesting legend concerning him is related by Ware. His festival is the 8th of March.
