Saint Flannan was the son of an Irish King. As a young man, he served as a baker at a monastery in Killaloe. He was well-respected because he served both the rich and the poor. After a pilgrimage to Rome and a meeting with the Pope, Saint Flannan became the first Bishop of Killaloe, Ireland during the 7th century and established many churches in Ireland.
It is said that a heavenly fire shone through our patron saint’s hands. Following that theme, Flannan House has chosen fire as its symbol. The fire emblem is always a part of our much-admired house T-shirts. Our motto is Honestae Gloria Fax Mentis which means “Glory is the firebrand of the honorable mind.” Simply put, glory to God is the goal of our honest efforts.
In our House, we have given our honest efforts in the yearly House Cup race. The past couple of years we have been “on fire” and moving up in the rankings. This year, with great senior leadership, we’re looking to go to the top! As the old saying goes, “HEAT RISES!”
