- Saint Cormac, a sixth century Irish abbot, lent his name to the village where he lived – Kilcormac. You can still visit St. Cormac’s Well;
- Cormac mac Cuilennáin, an Irish bishop and scholar, once considered a saint;
- A twelfth century Bishop of Dunkeld in Scotland I chose him because my last name is Irish so I wanted an Irish saint but I wanted to do someone that is different and not many people know. I found it interesting how he was a king .
Chapel named after saint cormac.
