Saint of the day: Saint Fiacre, an Irish hermit, made his home in France, where after his death his relics were used to cure sexually transmitted diseases. His name was also used for many years as a French term for taxi cabs, because the first firm in Paris to hire out coaches in the 17th Century was based near the Hotel Saint-Fiacre.
