Saint Momhanna, March 21

Another of our obscure female saints is commemorated on March 21. Canon O'Hanlon can bring us only the barest details from the calendars:

St. Momhanna, Virgin.

The name of St. Momhanna, a Virgin, occurs in the Martyrologies of Marianus O'Gorman and of Donegal, as having a festival, on this day; while the Bollandists notice her, as Momanna Virgo.
