Albert of Cashel
(supp. fl. 8th century)
Albart or Albert, a patron of Cashel of dubious historicity. A 12th-century life was written for him at St James, Regensburg (Vita S. Alberti archiepiscopi Casellensis) which identifies him as an Anglo-Saxon missionary who was active in both Ireland and Bavaria, undertook a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and died in Regensburg.
