Laurence O’Toole, monk and abbot of Glendalough in the 12th century, was brother-in-law of Dermot McMurrough, King of Leinster. Aoife, his niece, later became the wife of the Norman invader, Strongbow. With such family connections, it probably surprised nobody but himself when he was appointed Archbishop of Dublin in 1161.
