Sometimes confused with Colmán of Moray (certain)

Colmán of Moray has been confused with Colmán m. Áeda because one of Mart O’s scholiasts suggested that the obscure Colmán of 18 Feb might equate to the better known (from Irish perspective) Colmán from Co. Tyrone, whose feast-day is only three days away. He did not make the suggestion with any conviction, however, though Ó Riain does seem to think they are in origin the same (Ó Riain, Dictionary, 207). Both might ultimately go back to Columb Cille.
