Canoe (or Conoc, also Mochonoc, the syllable Mo being added, according to Colgan, for " the sake of honor and extraordinary respect"), an Irish saint, was born at Brecknock, in Wales, but was the son of Brecan, an Irish prince, who had settled at Brecknock. Canoc flourished about A.D. 492. and founded monasteries both in Ireland and Wales, his chief foundation having been Gallen, in Queen's County. Colgan gives his life (Acta Sanctorum, 311 sq.), under Feb. 11, but according to others his feast is celebrated Feb. 13, where Mart. Doneg. has Conanl; and Nov. 18, where the same martyrology has Mochonoc.
