Bruinsech, Cael

Bruinsech, Cael (the slender), daughter of Crimthan, and virgin of Magh-trea, is commemorated as an Irish saint May 29. Colgan (Acta Sanctorum, 459, c. 10; 789, c. 1) suggests that this may be Bruinecha, a favorite disciple of St. Kieran's mother, Liadania (q.v.): But instead df being the daughter of Crimthan, some account her as one of the three sisters of St. Cronan, or Mochua of Balla (March 30), and thus belonging to a different race, while others identify her with St. Buriena, who went to Cornwall. See Smith, Dict. of Christ. Biog. s.v.
