From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Donat, Saint, an Irishman, who left his home in youth, travelled through France and Italy, for some time lived a hermit in Tuscany, and was appointed Bishop of Fiesole in 816; "which see," says Alban Butler, "he governed with admirable sanctity and wisdom." Colgan gives an extract from his life of St. Bridget in Latin verse. His festival is the 22nd of October.

Charlotte Milligan Fox, sister of the poet Alice Milligan, was a founding member of the Irish Folk Song Society and an indefatigable field collector of Irish traditional music. Her singularly important work on Irish haprers is here presented for the twenty-first century reader. This edition of Annals offers a much greater number of illustrations than were included in the original 1911 publication, a full biographical introduction, an extensive bibliography of the writings of Milligan Fox and an appendix discussing the variant texts of Arthur O’Neills Memoirs.
