Saint Cormac of Senchoimhet, June 24

On June 24 the Irish calendars commemorate a Saint Cormac of Senchoimhet, but details of his name  and locality seem to be the only record of him, as Canon O'Hanlon explains:

St. Cormac or Corbmac, of Senchoimhet.

In the Martyrology of Tallagh, a festival is mentioned in honour of Cormac of Sencometa, at the 24th of June. He is named Corbmac, and his place is called Senchoimhet, in the Martyrology of Donegal. When he lived is unknown, nor has the locality been identified.
