Latiaran

In Goidelic mythology, Latiaran ("breast of light") was the youngest of three sisters (along with Inghean Bhuidhe and Lasair, daughters of Douglas and Scathach) associated with the harvest, which she represented.

After Christianization[?], she was turned into a saint. Her feast day[?] was July 25.

A story after Christianization says that she went to the same smithy every day to bring the smith the "seed of fire." The smith told her she had pretty feet and she looked down in vanity; her apron caught fire. She was not hurt but sank into the ground underneath a heart-shaped stone; she was never seen again.
