 Letham Twinning Weekend. Grand Irish Night at the Webster Theatre, Arbroath. Irish dancers prepare to go on stage. The link between Monasterboice and Letham is an Irish saint called Naomh Buite/Bhuite (St.Boice). St Boice was returning to Ireland from Italy where he had gone to be educated and he stopped off at Letham in Scotland. When he arrived in Letham the local king had just died and it is said that St.Boice brought him back to life, thus endearing him to the local people and there king. One of the stained glass windows in the local church of Dunnichen shows a picture of the king, St Boice and the kings aids. Underneath it is written, "Saint Buite at Dunnichen restores the King to life and founds a monastery in the royal fort".
