CARTHAGE THE YOUNGER (Saint) Bishop (May 14) (7th century) This Saint, whose real name appears to have been Mochuda, was born in Kerry in the first half of the sixth century, and attached himself to Saint Carthage of Ossory. After this teacher, he had as his Abbot Saint Comgall of Benchor, and was soon himself placed at the head of a monastery in which he ruled over a thousand monks. His Abbey developed into the famous Bishopric and school of Lismore. He passed away at the age of ninety, about A.D. 638.
