Saint Mocholla, Daughter of Diomma, May 25

May 25 sees the commemoration of a female saint, Mocholla, daughter of Diomma. As with so many Irish saints, we have no other details apart from the recording of her name and feast day date, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

St. Mocholla, Daughter of Diomma.

The Martyrology of Tallagh thus records this name, at the 25th of May, as Mocholla inghen Diomo. However, quoting the same authority, the Bollandists, at this date, enter Mocholla, filia Damae. According to the Martyrology of Donegal, Mocholla, daughter of Diomma, was venerated on this day.
