    St. Molaga's Church Bremore.
    In the middle of the sixth century there was a famous seat of piety and learning here. The founder was a native of Co. Cork. In the early days of Faith, St Cuimmin, the tall, and St. Cumdon Mac de Chearde were passing by Abbercross, between Mitchelstown, and Kildorrery. They saw an old couple sowing flax. They had no children but they were satisfied with Gods will. The sowers were Dubligh, and Monchela. The Saints promised them a son, and this son afterwards became St. Molaga. They became young, and this was a miracle. The King of Fermoy, whose name was Cuanne, brought them to his palace. Crowds came to see the miracle. St Molaga preformed Miracles, He established a religious house at home, and then went to Ulster, North Britain. He returned and settled in Fingal. He cured one of the Lords of the soil of a dangerous disease, and got the site of Bremore that is near the sea about two miles from here.
