Beoga (Or Begga)
an Irish saint, whose day is Feb. 10. It is said by Coulgan. (Tr. 'Thaum. p. 121) that when St. Patrick was in East Meath he left at the Church of Techlaisran, in that county, two of his disciples, Bega a virgin, and Lugaidh a priest, probably brother and sister, the children of Gauran. Near the church-door was a well and a tomb, the latter having the name of Feart- Bige, or Bega's tomb.
