I came across this wonderful site http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/all.shtml which I believe will be of interest.|
I was interested to see that http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/MaelMuire.shtml shows quite a few 'Máel Muire / Maol Mhuire' including:
Annals Entry Context Citation (formatting preserved)
U U887.5 R Mael Mura, righ filed Erenn
U U973.3 R Mael Muire, airchinnech Dairmaighi
B M1102.3 R Maol Muire Midheach, saoi saccairt Cluana h-Eraird
B M1123.3 R Maol Maire Ua Condubháin, airchindeach Doire Luráin.
B M1159.1 R Maol Maire Ua Loingsigh, epscop Lis Móir
The R in all these entries denotes that they held a religious office.
I also found several other references came yp on a Google serach for 'maolmuire' including these two.
The Macmillan Chief Maolmuire sheltered Robert the Bruce at Ben Lawers when he was on the run in the Highlands .
Miles, or Maolmuire was killed at Kinlochewe shortly before 1539 by the followers of Donald Gorm Macdonald, of Sleat.
Many others indicate that Miles or Myles is English for Maolmuire!
