Fulartach mac Bricc, patron saint of Dísert Fulartaig, now probably Dysart (Co. Kildare). AFM give Fulartach ‘son of Brecc, the anchorite’ an obit of 755. Ó Riain has suggested that he is ultimately identical with the Fulartach who was bishop at Clonard (d. 779, AU), but also points out that the divergence in their obits and possibly, feastdays is somewhat problematic.
