Echtgus Úa CúanáinÚa Cúanáin (Echtgus)
(d. 1161?)
Author of a Middle Irish metrical treatise on the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. According to a rubric in the Brussels copy of the poem, he was of the community of Roscrea. It has been suggested, e.g. by Aidan Breen, that he is the same person as Ísác Úa Cúanáin, first known bishop of Roscrea, whose obit is recorded in AFM under the year 1161.
