Marnock of Kilmarnock

Introduction

A saint Marnock was commemorated in on October 25th in Scotland at least by the mid 15th century; he appears in many of the Scottish calendars where he is consistently a bishop. He is linked specifically with Kilmarnock (presumably the one in Ayrshire, though there are others) in the Aberdeen Breviary (though there are no lessons), Mart. Ab. and Adam King. The name Kilmarnock is on record from the early 14th century (Kylmernoc 1315x1321, RMS i no. 46) but early traditions relating to the saint of the place have not survived. Paul records a Fair of St Marnoch at Kilmarnock on Oct 20th (Paul 1918 p 168). This saint may correspond to Ernán of Midlúachair qv and Ternóc m. Ciaráin qv.
