Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume I: January.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
January 1
St. Fanchea, or Faine, Virgin, of Ireland
 
HER feast has been kept for time immemorial in the parish church of Rosairthir, in the diocess of Clogher, in Ulster; and at Kilhaine near Mount Bregh, on the borders of Meath, where her relics have been in veneration. She seems to have been an abbess, and is thought to have flourished in the sixth century, when many eminent saints flourished in Ireland. Her name was not known to Bollandus or Sir James Ware. See Chatelain.  1
