Muirenn ingen Congalaig
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.
AU 979.1 "Muirenn ingin Congalaig, comarba Brigti, quieuit." Muirenn daughter of Congalach, successor of Brigit, rested."
