Saint Mungo

Saint Mungo, also known as Saint Kentigern, traditional apostle to Strathclyde and patron saint and alleged founder of the city of Glasgow. Legendarily of Pictish[?] religious origins, a pupil of Saint Serf[?], he takes credit for much of the Christianisation or re-Christianisation of Strathclyde and Galloway[?] in the days before Saint Columba. He is said to have given life to a robin killed by young hooligans.
