Profile

Irish princess. Following a pilgrimage to Rome, Italy, she was murdered with her brother, Saint Indract, and six others by heathen Saxon brigands. Because they were on a holy journey, and were killed by non-Christians, contemporaries considered them martyrs. Later legends swell the number of her martyred companions to 100.
