"Saint Kevin of Glendalough (c. 498–618) is a Christian saint who was known as the founder and first abbot of Glendalough in County Wicklow, Ireland.

 

"He was known for his disdain of human company, especially that of women; his name was used in Ireland as a term for men with cold relations with women up until the 19th century. An extreme example of his chastity was the instance when he pushed an amorous woman into a patch of nettles.

 

"His feast day in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches is 3 June" (Wikipedia)
