- Emigrated from Britain to Guic-Sezni, Brittany where he founded a monastery.
A Breton legend says that God chose Sithney to be the patron of girls seeking husbands; the saint begged off, saying he would never get to rest, that he would rather take care of mad dogs than women.
Sounded like a good idea to the Almighty, and ever since, sick or mad dogs have been given water from Sithney's well as a tonic.
