Book of Saints – Damhnade


DAMHNADE (Saint) Virgin (June 13) (Date uncertain) An Irish Virgin famed for miracles and greatly venerated in Cavan, Fermanagh, etc. Colgan identifies her with Saint Dympna, the Martyr of Gael in Belgium, but he can scarcely be right, as neither can be AEngus, who makes her out to have been sister to Saint Fursey. Nothing is really known of her life or date.
