Saint Cuan Life History

To assist in drawing wood from the forest to build these churches, Mochua called to his aid twelve stags, which served as patiently and obediently as oxen. And when his virtues drew to him many people and much praise, the old man fled from place to place, for he considered that the glory of this world would turn his heart from the glory of the world to come.

When very aged, he escaped with his oratory bell into a wild and mountainous part, and there the clapper fell to the ground, at a place called Dagrinnis. He was troubled in spirit, so bleak and lonely did the place appear but an angel announced to him that there he was to build a cell, and there to die, in this spot he spent thirty years and performed many miracles, and died in the ninety-ninth year of his age.

Then he settled at a spot called Teach Mochua.
