Mosenóc Mugnae (Ó Riain 1985) [Mugnae is in Co. Kildare]
Mosenóc appears in the Irish martyrologies on December 11th, and is connected, in the genealogies, with a group associated with East Leinster, particularly around Glendalough (Ó Riain, Dictionary, 499) A remarkable tree was present near his church at Ballaghmoon (Mart. O notes, 258). Several refs in Ó Riain 1985. Appears in Mart. O on Dec 11. Mart. O index has Senchán Imlech Ibair on Dec 11 who could be a doublet. It is Senchán Imlech Ibair who Watson thinks might be represented in Kilmanshennachan in Kintyre (Watson 1926, 361).
