Colum of Badenoch

Introduction

It is likely that this is a version of Colum Cille. However, since he has a distinct date and place he is given a separate profile here. St Colm's Fair in Badenoch was on Jan 15 (Watson 1926 p 279). On Jan 13th Mart Do and Mart G have two Colmáns and two Conna / Moconna types. Only one is noticed in Mart O notes: Mochonna Inse Patraic in Laud 610.
