King Gereint Llyngesog (the Fleet Owner)'s daughter, Princess Breaca, left Dumnonia to become a nun at St. Brigid's foundation of Campus Breacae in Ireland. She later returned to her home Kingdom with Saints Sinwin, Germoe, Elwen, Crowan and Helen. She built churches first at Pencair, then Trenwith and Talmeneth. She finally retired to the village named after her, Breage.
