Banban In Irish hagiology there are several Banbans given.

(1.) Two of these are probably the same person, Banban the Wise, attached to separate days, May 1 and 9. Colgan (Tr. Thaum. p. 176) is of the opinion that the Bambanum to whom St. Patrick committed the Domnach Mor, or large basilica in Magh-Sleacht, was Banban the Wise. He also supposes him to have been a son of Richella, sister of St. Patrick. In Tr. Thaun? He is called presbyter, but at May 1 the Mart. Tallaght calls him bishop.

(2.) Bishop of Leithglinn, commemorated Nov. 26;ῥ the abbot of Claenadh (Clane, County Kildare), who died A.D. 777.

(3.) Another bishop, put by Mart. Doneg., etc., on Dec. 3.
