Saint Barrán, August 9

August 9 is the feast of yet another of our enigmatic Irish female saints who has left only the record of her name and her feast day, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

St. Barrán, Virgin.

The name of Barrán, Virgin, is found in the Martyrologies of Tallagh and of Donegal, at the 9th of August. Nothing more seems to be known regarding her.
