Saint Maeldoid, June 29

Canon O'Hanlon brings details of an obscure holy man, Maeldoid, Son of Derbhdara at June 29:

St. Maeldoid, Son of Derbhdara.

We find entered in the Martyrology of Tallagh, that veneration was given at the 29th of June, to Moeldoid i Failbhe, mac Daire. Little seems to be known regarding him. At the same date, the Martyrology of Donegal registers the name of Maeldoid, son of Derbhdara.
