Conamail mac Faílbi

Conamail mac Faílbi was the tenth abbot of Iona (704–707). Although he did not die until 710, his successor Dunchad was made abbot in 707. This may be evidence of a split in the Iona community over the Easter controversy, a mistake in the sources, or an otherwise unexplained resignation. Conamail features on the guarantor-list of the Cáin Adomnáin.[1]
