The holy and glorious Virgin-martyr '''Dymphna''' (also ''Dympna'') was a 7th century Celtic saint (died circa 650).  Her [[feast day]] is celebrated on [[May 15]].
Born in Ireland, she was forced to flee to Belgium accompanied by a [[priest]], St Gerebern. Their [[relics]] were discovered at Gheel near Antwerp in the thirteenth century. Since then numberless cases of mental illness have been healed at their [[shrine]].
