Saint Ailbe (also spelled Ailbhe) is sometimes claimed as one of the pre-Patrician saints, with Ciaran, Declan, and Ibar, but the annals note his death in 528. A tradition held that he went to Rome and was ordained bishop by the Pope. He founded the monastery and Diocese of Emly, (then called Imlech), which became very important in Munster. A ninth-century Rule bears his name.

The name "Ailbhe" remains a common female name in Ireland.
