Kevin, a descendant of one of the ruling families in Leinster, studied as a boy under the care of three holy men, Eoghan, Lochan, and Eanna. During this time, he went to Glendalough. He was to return later, with a small group of monks to found a monastery where the 'two rivers form a confluence'. Kevin's writings discuss his fighting "knights" at Glendalough; scholars today believe this refers to his process of self-examination and his personal temptations. His fame as a holy man spread and he attracted numerous followers.
Not sure, but the libraries in Ireland full of old Gaelic writings have barely been touched (a whole building of them was set on fire in the Easter Rising) so they could be there.
I found this huge text in what looks like Classical Gaelic about him (and other Saints, I think)... Which probably won't help.
