Saint Croine of Tallaght, February 25

On February 25 we commemorate a County Dublin holy woman, Croine of Tallaght. Sadly, apart from her commemoration on the calendars, there is nothing else known of her, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

St. Croine, Virgin, of Tallagh, County of Dublin.

Croine, Virgin, of Tamhlacht, is mentioned in the Martyrologies of Tallagh and of Donegal, on this day. A community of holy women seems to have been established at her place, in the county of Dublin. This virgin's name is not found, elsewhere, in history.
