Patron Saint of Dublin
Born in 1128 in County Kildare, Ireland, Laurence was the son of Murtagh, chieftain of the Murrays.
When he was ten years old, Laurence was taken hostage by King Dermot McMurrogh of Leinster in a raid and, after two years of mistreatment by his captor, was sent to live with the Bishop of Glendalough.
