March 5 Saint Piran’s Day. A note on the Saint’s name: In the 13th century Saint Piran became identified as Saint Ciaran of Saighir. This was due to the linguistic ability of the Celtic letter 'P' to transform into the Celtic and/or Gaelic letter ‘C’. March fifth is the traditional feast day of both Saint Ciarán of Saighir and Saint Piran, assuming they were the same person or were at least very similar people.
