See also: Camulacus
Camulacus (Cáemlach?)
(s. v)
A now obscure saint, abbot of Rathan (Rahan, Co. Offaly) and contemporary of St Patrick. He appears as Camulacus Commiensium (‘of the Commienses’) in Tírechan’s Collectanea and as Camelacus in an early hymn. His background is unknown and modern scholars have variously argued for Gaulish, British and Irish origins.

Riaguil of Bennchor
Riaguil of Bennchor
(fl. 8th/9th century?)
The name ‘Riaguil of Bennchor’, suggesting a religious associated with the monastery of Bennchor (Bangor, Co. Down), is attested for: (1) a saint commemorated in the martyrologies of Tallaght and Donegal under 11 June, and (2) a poet to whom a couple of verses on the battle of Dún Nechtain (685) are attributed. Although the first name, presumably a monastic name, is relatively rare, it is possible but by no means certain that they refer to the same person.
