Saint Dichuill of Achadh-na-cró, June 12

On June 12 the Irish calendars record yet another obscure Irish holy man, Dichuill of Achadh-na-cró. As in so many other cases, the only information Canon O'Hanlon can bring us is the preservation of the saint's name in the Martyrologies:

St. Diucaill or Dichuill, of Achadh-na-cro.

On the 12th of June, according to the Martyrologies of Tallagh, and of Donegal, veneration was given to Diucaill, or Dichuill, of Achadh-na-cró. This place has not been identified.
