Saint Fachanan (also known as Fachtna), about whom little is known with certainty, is linked by a strong early tradition with Kilfenora, where he founded a church or monastery in the sixth century. He is venerated as the first Bishop of Kilfenora. In the Roman Catholic Church, this diocese is now administered by the Diocese of Galway and in the Anglican church by the Diocese of Limerick and Killaloe.
His feast day is 20 December.
Saint Fachtna of Ross (feast day: formerly 14 August, now 13 August) was also called Fachanan.
He belonged to the ancient princely race of the Corcu LoĆ­gde.
