ST. BREACA, NOW BREAGUE, V.

SHE was a disciple of St. Patrick, and coming from Ireland into Cornwall, landed at Reyver on the eastern bank of the river Hayle, now called Alin, in the hundredth of Penrith, and led there a solitary life in great sanctity. She was honored there with a church famous for pilgrimages and miracles. See Borlase, Antiq. of Cornwall, and Leland.
