St. Abban of New Ross

St. Abban of New Ross — also known as St. Ewin, Abhan, or Evin, but whose name has been locally corrupted as "Stephen," "Neville," and "Nevin" — was the contemporary and namesake of St. Abban of Magheranoidhe. Some writers have confounded him with St. Evin of Monasterevan, County Kildare. Even Colgan (Followed by Dr. Lanigan) fell into the error of identifying Rosglas (Monasterevan) with Ros-mic-treoin (New Ross). St. Evin of Rosglas, author of the "Tripartite Life of St. Patrick," died 22 December, at his own foundation, afterwards called Monaster Evin (County Kildare), whereas St. Abban, or Evin of Ros-mic-treoin, died at Ross, County Wexford.
