an Irish prelate, was a native of England, and a monk of the Benedictine abbey of Evesham. His education was superior. September 6, 1181, he was elected to the see of Dublin, and was subsequently ordained a priest, at Velletri; March 21, 1182, he was there consecrated archbishop by pope Lucius III. In September 1184, he was sent to Ireland by the king to prepare for the reception of prince John earl of Moreton. In 1185 he was one of the English nobles who received John. and his train on their arrival at Waterford, and in the same year he obtained from the boy prince, during his sojourn in Ireland, a grant of the bishopric of Glendalough, with all its churches, lands, tithes, etc. In 1186 Comyn held a provincial synod in Dublin, in the Church of the Holy Trinity. He assisted at the coronation of king Richard I, September 3, 1189, and was the witness to that monarch's letters-patent for surrendering to William, king of Scotland, the castles of .Rockbork and Berwick. In 1190 this prelate erected a church, dedicated to St. Patrick, in the southern part of Dublin. At the same time he repaired and partly enlarged the choir of the cathedral of Christ Church, and founded and endowed the nunnery of Grace Dieu in Dublin. He died October 25, 1212.
