Bangor Abbey was established by Saint Comgall in 558 in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland and was famous for its learning and austere rule. It is not to be confused with the even older abbey in Wales on the site of Bangor Cathedral. Bangor Abbey was a centre of learning which trained missionaries in the Middle Ages. It used to be called the "Light of the World". It was from here that St. Columbanus set out on his famous missionary journey to Europe.
