January 1
St. Mochua, or Moncain, alias Claunus, Abbot in Ireland
 
HAVING served his prince in the army, he renounced the world, and devoted himself to God in a monastic state, with so much fervour as to become a model of perfection to others. He is said to have founded thirty churches, and one hundred and twenty cells, and passed thirty years at one of these churches, which is called from him Teach Mochua, but died at Dayrinis on the 1st of January, in the ninety-ninth year of his age, about the sixth century. See his life in Bollandus, p. 45.  1
