St. Buriana was an Irish princess who travelled with St. Piran. She cured King Gerren's son of paralysis. Because of her healing powers, Gerren abducted her and agreed to release her after St. Piran intervened.  However, he had impossible terms. She would be let go if he was woken by a cuckoo call echoing across a snow-covered landscape. Despite the terms being incompatible, he prayed all night. The snow fell and the King awoke to a cuckoo. So impressed was he that she was set free.

Buriana - Irish hermitess of Cornwall, known for penitential practices and holiness. She is venerated at Buryan, opposite the Isles of Scilly.
