Moling

Irish - A saint. Son of Eamhnait. Eamhnait had an affair with her sister's husband and fled when she became pregnant. Her son, Moling, was born when she was trapped in the snow and his birth was heralded by angels and a dove from heaven. The boy was rescued and reared by monks and became a monk himself. He is said to have saved himself from pursuing warriors by causing a mist to envelop them so that they became confused and ended up killing each other. On another occasion he reputedly raised a man from the dead. He took care of the mad Suibhne Geilt in his last days and gave him the last sacrament when he died. In some accounts, called Moling.
