Saint Mochuda

From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878

« John Mitchel | Index | Saint Molaisse »

Mochuda, or Carthage, Saint, was first Bishop of Lismore, to which see he was consecrated between 631 and 636. He had previously established the abbey of Rattan, in Offaly, which he governed forty years, and whence he was expelled, probably on account of his views in the Paschal controversy of the day. He died in 637, and the 14th of May is considered his festival.
