Mo Chuta m. Finaill of Rathan and Lismore
Two surviving Latin lives, one in D (Plummer, VSH vol1 170-99) and an abbreviation of it in S (Heist 1965, 334-340). Sharpe suggests that the life in D uses 'a full vita of somewhat earlier date' (Sharpe 1991, 396). An Irish Life also derives from the D version (Plummer, BNE vol 1, 291-9). An account of Mochuta's expulsion from Rathan is in Plummer, BNE vol 1, 300-307.
