Muirenn regina Irgalaig ("Irgalach's queen")
She was one of the daughters of Cellach Cualann, king of Leinster (d.715), and was called on her death "Irgalach's queen" in reference to a marriage to the king of Brega; but a fairly good circumstantial picture has been built up to associate her with the saint culted on Loch Lomondside.
