Breaca, Saint

Breaca, Saint.

Among the companies of Irish ascetics who landed in the Hayle Estuary, on the north coast of England, are named Breaca, Ia, Uni, Sininus, and others. Lives of Breaca, Ia. Elwinus, and Wynnerius, existed in Leland's time (Itin. 3, page 4, 15, 16, 21), which connected some of their companions with St. Patrick. It is possible that we may place the arrival of Breaca in the latter part of the 5th century. He is said to have been born on the confines of Ulster and Leinster, i.e., East Meath. The parish of Breage is by some thought to be named after him. St. Breaca's day is June 4.
