About Matt Talbot

  • The Venerable Matt Talbot, OFS (2 May 1856 – 7 June 1925) was an Irish ascetic revered by many Catholics for his piety, charity and mortification of the flesh. Talbot was an unskilled labourer.
  • Though he lived alone for most of his life, Talbot did live with his mother for a time.
  • His life would have gone unnoticed were it not for the cords and chains discovered on his body when he died suddenly on a Dublin street in 1925. Though he has not been formally recognized as a saint, Talbot may be considered a patron of those struggling with alcoholism.
  • He is commemorated on 19 June.
