(d. 643 x 646)
King of Osraige, son of Colmán son of Bicne Cáech. He is best known in relation to the Synod of Druim Cett, at which time his father was king of Osraige and Scandlán, apparently a youth, was held hostage by Áed mac Ainmirech, overking from the Cenél Conaill branch of the Uí Néill. According to Adomnán, Colum Cille conferred a blessing on him and Scandlán would later take up the kingship of Osraige. He is sometimes given as a son of Cend Fáelad. Charles-Edwards suggests that a pedidgree may have been the source of confusion (Rawl. B 502: Cend Fáelad m. Colmain cuius filius Scandlain).
- Early Irish
Early Irish poem which occurs in the prose preface to the Amra Choluim Chille and related textual contexts. It is a dialogue poem between Colum Cille and Scandlán Mór, apparently in continuation of the previous dialogue poem (beg. Slécht sís, a Scandláin, dom réir), in which Scandlán has promised to deliver tribute at Durrow. In the present poem, Colum Cille offers him his crozier (bachall) as a means of protection against trouble on the road to Durrow, specifically any trouble he might encounter from Domnall mac Áeda.
