- 457 AD: D:In 457 “the elder Patrick” (Irish: Patraic Sen) is said to have died: this may refer to the death of Palladius, who according to the Book of Armagh was also called Patrick.
- 535 AD: D:The death of Patrick’s disciple Mochta is dated in the annals to 535 or 537, and the early hagiographies “all bring Patrick into contact with persons whose obits occur at the end of the fifth century or the beginning of the sixth”.
