St Rumon, also known as Ruan, Ronan, and
Ruadan, was probably a brother of Bishop St Tudwal of Trequier, but nothing else is known of him
beyond that he was probably an Irish missionary and many churches in Devon and Cornwall in England
were named after him. Some authorities believed he is the same as the St Ronan (June 1) venerated in
Brittany and believed consecrated bishop by St Patrick, but others believe that he and St Kea were
British monks who founded a monastery at Street Somerset.
