Historical references

Kilmorgan
Kilmorgan in Sligo (near Keshcorran); corrupted from Cill-Murchon, Muirchu's church ("O'Cl.Cal."); and the Calendar suggests that the saint who gave name to this church is the same as the Muirchu who is commemorated in the Calendar at 12 June: sixth or seventh century.
