O'Gorman, Marian, or Maelmuire, Abbot of Knock, near Louth, composed in 1171 a calendar generally known as the Calendar of Marianus. Colgan says it is in elegant Irish verse, and much esteemed for its beauty of style and faithfulness of detail. The only old copy of this manuscript is preserved in the Burgundian Library at Brussels. Dr. Todd and Dr. Reeves considered it sufficiently valuable to have transcripts made for their private use.
