Book of Saints – Lelia


(Saint) Virgin (August 11) (Date unknown) The traditions connected with this Saint are unhappily lost; nor does her name occur in the Irish Martyrologies. She seems to have lived at a very early period, and to have been connected with the Dioceses of Limerick and Kerry. Some suppose her to have been a sister of Saint Munchin of Limerick. Several place-names in Ireland perpetuate her memory; and she is still in great popular veneration.
