Biography

Saint Edana (additionally Edna and Eidyn) of West Ireland, lived close to the conjunction of the Boyle and Shannon Rivers in the 6th century. Her name signifies “little flame.” She got the shroud from St. Patrick himself.

There are areas in western Ireland named for St. Edana. She is the benefactor of the wards of Tuarnia in western Ireland in the bishoprics of Elphin and Tuam.

The City of Edinburgh, presently Scotland’s capital, is accepted to have been named for the Irish cloister adherent: “Dùn Édana”, signifying “Edana’s château” or “Edana’s stronghold”. St. Edana in the long run headed out to Scotland and established a cloister there. Scottish history specialists have guaranteed that the city was named for a stronghold worked there around 638 by King Edwin. After he caught the site from the Gododdin he assembled “Dùn Éideann” (for “Dunedin”) – Eidyn’s post. Notwithstanding, some time before the season of King Edwin, there was Edana’s Sanctuary, where the Irish sister established her religious community.
