Conlaedh (Condlaedh, Con-laidh, or Conlian), an Irish saint, is commemorated May 3. When St. Brigida founded her monastery at Kildare, she chose the learned and pious Conlaedh to be her bishop, but in submission to the monastic authority. He was also St. Brigida's chief artist, artificer, or brazier, for the working in all kinds of metals, and making chalices, patens, bells, shrines, etc. He was devoured by wild dogs or wolves as he was on his way to Rome, A.D. 520 (Todd and Reeves, Mart.
