Becc (or Beg)
Becc (Or Beg)
an Irish saint whose day is Oct. 12, was the son of De, and seems to have been attached to the court of Diarmait of Tara, about A.D. 500, when his prophecies appear to have had a wide reference and acceptance. O'Donovan (Four Masters. i, 197) places his death at A.D. 557. Colgan (Acta SS. 713, c. 4, § 3) gives his genealogy from Colla-da-chrioch; but the ancient pedigree represents him as eighth from Niall of the Nine Hostages.
