Comgán Mac Dá CherdaComgán Mac Dá Cherda
(fl. first half of the 7th century)
Comgán Mac Da Cherda, Mac Dá Cherda, Mac Da Cherda
Poet and fool (óinmit) in Irish literature; a son of Máel Ochtraig (king of the Déisi Muman) and a contemporary of Cummíne Fota. The name Mac Dá Cherda would mean ‘Son of Two Arts’, but seeing as it may go back to an original Moccu Cherda (as suggested by Jackson and Ó Coileáin) it is perhaps best spelled conservatively, without lengthening in Da.
