We return to the letter “I”, and appropriately enough, Ireland, for today’s saint. It is Saint Ite of Killeedy:
Íte ingen Chinn Fhalad (d. 570/577), also known as Ita, Ida or Ides, was an early Irish nun and patron saint of Killeedy (Cluain Credhail). She was known as the “foster mother of the saints of Erin”. The name “Ita” (“thirst for holiness”) was conferred on her because of her saintly qualities. Her feast day is 15 January.
Quite a lot more about this saint can be found at her wiki, located here.
