Book of Saints – Molagga

main article for Saint Molagga of FermoyArticle

(Laicin) (Saint) Abbot (January 20) (7th century) An Irish Saint, brought up in Wales under the discipline of Saint David. He founded a monastery at Fulachmhin (Fermoy). He was distinguished for his exceptional learning as well as for his piety and for his Christian charity. He seems to have survived the great pestilence of A.D. 664. He is much venerated in the South of Ireland. There are several Saints of the same name (Irish Hagiologists enumerate no less than twelve), and it is often difficult to disentangle their Acts.
