Muirenn ingen Congalaig

Introduction

There is no certainty this woman was a saint. We know of her death in 979, and a fair amount about her relations. Her father was probably Congalach mac Maíle Mithig, king of Brega and of Tara (d.956); and her uncle was Aed, who died in St Andrews (i Cindrigmonaid) on pilgrimage in 965. For discussion, see Taylor with Márkus, PNFife 3, p. 591.
