Loman of Trim

Loman of Trim was the nephew of Saint Patrick, and was the first bishop appointed by Patrick in Ireland. Loman converted both Fortchern (Vortigern), the Prince of Trim (grandson of Laeghaire, King of Meath), and his father Foidilmid, and was given Trim for an episcopal see in 433. Some texts posit that Loman was a bishop before he came to Ireland Fact|date=February 2007, but this seems unlikely, as he would not accept a gift of Trim unless Patrick came to ratify it, and it is expressly stated in the "Tripartite Life", as also by Tirechan, that he was only a simple priest, but consecrated by Patrick for Trim. Loman did not long survive his promotion to the episcopate, and after a brief visit to his brother Broccaid at Emlach Ech in Connacht, he resigned his see to his princely convert Fortchern, with the Patrick's permission. Fortchern only ruled for three days after Loman's death, and then ceded his office to Cathlaid, another British pilgrim. Loman of Trim is not to be confused with Loman of Loch Gill.
