Interesting writing about St Moluag! I am not sure if others saw this particular writing, but its interesting.

an small extract (you must read the whole article!):
He first organised the great community of Lismore in Lorn about 562AD. Moluag's settlement was in the north of Lismore, close to a megalithic site surmounted by a high cairn which once marked the funeral pyres of Pictish Kings. This island was the sacred island of the Western Picts, and continued to be the burial-place of their kings who reigned at Beregonium. The Churches dependent on Lismore, still traceable, are Teampul Mór in Lewis; the Church of Pabay, that is, Isle of the pápa; Cill Moluag in Raasay; Teampull Mholuig, "Moluag's Chapel", at Europie in Ness; Cill Moluag in Skye; Cill Moluag in Tiree; Cill Moluag in Mull; 'Kilmalu' in Morvern; 'Kilmalu' of Inverary; and Cill Moluag at Ballagan, Inverfarigaig.

I find this passage interesting: Cill Moluag in Mull!!!
