Patrick and Brigid, the pillars of the Irish people, there was so great a friendship of charity that they had but one heart and one mind.
There is much debate over her birthparents, but it is widely believed her mother was Brocca, a Christian baptized by Saint Patrick, and her father was Dubthach, a Leinster chieftain.
