mense depredations were committed on Muinter-Eolais on 
this oocasion ; but these depredations were not depreda- 
tions without retaliation, for Cormac Mac Diarmada 
Ruadh, and the two soiis of Tomaltacli O'Birn, viz., 
Maelechlainn Caech' and Gilla-Christ, were slain there ; 
and Diarmaid Mac Diarmada, and Maelruanaidh, son of 
Donnchadh Riabhach,^ were moreover taken prisoners 
there ; and " the defeat of the youths" is the name of 
that defeat from that day to this. Fedlilimidh-an-einigh,' 
son of Pomhnall O'Conchobhair of Corcumruaidh, king 
of Corcumruaidh, died. Brian, son of Matthew Mac 
Tighernain, chieftain of Tellach-Dunchadha, the most 
famous man of the Breifnians, mortuus est, ut dicitur* — 

Brian Mac Tighemain of the conflicts — 
With his hospitalitv comparison was not just — 
He followed generosity without hatred ; 
Heaven was the end of his battle-career. 

Brian, son of Aedh Mac Mathghamhna, assumed the 
sovereignty of Oirghiall, and contracted a marriage 
alliance with Somhairle, son of John Dubh Mac Domh- 
náill, high constable of the province of Uladh, who 
induced him to put away O'Raighilligh's daughter, and 
wed his own daughter. And it was not long after that 
until he (Bi'ian) invited him to a feast, to drink wine as it 
were ; and the feast which his son-in-law then gave him 
was, to apprehend him, and bind him, and put him in a 
lake to conceal him.' Brian himself was banished 
through this deed. Cuchonnacht O'Baighilligh entered 
the Order^ in hoc anno. Aedh, son of Niali O'Domhnaill, 
was slain by Domhnall, son of Muirchertach O'Con- 
chobhair. Tadhg, son of Maghnus O'Conchobhair, came

of Maghnus was not worse." But a worse deed was 
committed against him after a while ; i.e., he was surren- 
dered to Domhnall, son of Muircherta^h O'Conchobhair, 
and was ultimately killed by Domhnall in the castle of 
Sligech. And a great war arose in all Connacht through 
this deed, viz., between Mac William, and O'Conchobhair, 
and Mac Diarmada. Ruaidhri, son of Seonac Mac Eocha-

his own brethren, and put into Cloch-Locha-Uachtair •* 
and the sovereignty was assumed in his place by Magh-

Breifne through this capture ; and a great army was 
assembled by Annadh O'RaighiUigh, i.e. the son of 
Richard, (\iz., Mac Mathghamhna, and the rest of the 
Airghialla), to rescue Philip O'Raighilligh from Maghnus. 
And a great defeat was inflicted on Magbnus, at Blen-

which were slain the three sons of Cormac O'Ferghail, 
viz., Seonin, Maelechlainn, and Fergus ; and Fedhlimidh, 
son of Aedh-an-chleitín* O'Conchobhair ; and the two

The lcalends' of Januarj on Satm-day, and the sixth of

Indictionia ; x. anno cycli eolaris. A great war between 
O'^Ruairc and O'Raiglúlligh ; and the people of Anghaile, 
and Muinter-Eolaia, the Tellach-Dunchadha, and the 
Clann-Muirchortaigh come to join in that war,* under 
the direction of Domhnall, the son of Muirchertach, and 
of Tomaltach Mac Donnchaidh. Maghnus O'Ruairc, wlio 
had been iinprísoned by O'Raighilligh in Cloch-Locha- 
uachtair, escaped from it' and went to the castle of Loch-

intelligence of this, and he was slain by them when 
coming out of his cot. Brian, son of William Mac Branan, 
occisus est íive nights before Allhallowtide. Peace 
was concluded by O'Ruairc and O'Raighilligh, and 
O'Raighilligh obtained liberal rewai'ds from O'Ruairc in 
consideration of O'Raighiliigh forsaking and banishing 
his (P'Ruairc's) enemies and adversaries; and Eoghau 
O'Ruairc, and the son of Cathal Riabhach, were given as 
pledges for tíie payment of these rewards. The Clann- 
Muircliertaigh and Tellach-Duuchadha emigrated in 
despite of Muinter-Ruairc, towards Fidh-na-finnoige,* 
Sliabh-CoiTan, and Cenel-Luachain ; and O'Ruairc ob- 
tained intelligence of this whilst he was in Glemi- 
Gaibhle ; and he brought his bands to the upper part of 
Cenel-Luswihain ; and a brave, destructive assault was 
made by O'Ruairc on these royal divisions, who were 
routed ; and the killing of their floclcs continued from 
Bel-atha-doire-Dubhthaigh* to the summit of the Breif- 
nian hills.® Thomas, son of Mathghamhain O'Raighilligh,

A horrible war broke out between* Toirdhelbhach, the 
son of JNiall Garbh, son of Aedh O'Domhnaill, and the 
royal heir of the Eoghanachs, ie. Brian, son of Henry

And as ro evil goes nm'evenged,^ nor offence unpunished, 
these transactions did not pass without being promptly 
avenged by the Cenel-Conaill. And thus it was that 
these things happeued to them, viz. : — the son of O'Neill 
was left with a small company at the close of the day, 
and Henry O'Gairmledhaigh's prey before him ; and these 
preys were taken from him by the Cenel-Moan. And 
this was the joy with sorrow to the Cenel-Moan, for he 
(Bria)i) killed the son of O'Gairmledhaigh^ with one 
stroke of his sword. And inimediately afterwards 
the Cenel-Conaill ali closed aronnd* the powerful hero, 
and the great feat was performed' by Toirdhelbach 
O'Domhnaill. And Niall, son of Niall Garbh O'Domh- 
naill, and Maelsechlaiun, son of Flaithbhertach O'Ruairc, 
were slain in the beginning of that day by the 
Eoghanachs ;'° and their losses l^esides were very great ; 
but the enumeration of all cannot be attempted for 
fear of prolixity.

Great dissension grew up between the Clann-Maelruan-

the son of Conchobhar Mac Diarmada, and his own 
kinsmen, i.e. the family of Conchobhar Mac Diarmada, 
and Ruaidhri Og, son of Ruaidhri Caech Mac Diarmada, 
i.e. tanist of Magli-Luirg at that time, rose against each 
other ; and the hest territory in Erinn of its own size was 
destroyed by them respectively. Mac Diarmada and his 
lcinsmen brought Mac WiUiam Burk, i.e. Rickard O'Cuair- 
scidh, upon Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada's part of the country, 
and ob.served neither covenant nor equaUty towards him. 
The country was destroyed' by Mac WiUiara, both church 
and territory ; and he did no good in the country ; but he 
destroyed it, and left it unquiet on his departure. 
SUgech was occuj)ied on this occasion by Mac Wilii^Da, 
who left his son in its wardship. After the departtire of 
Mac WiUiam out of Magh-Luirg, however, and after he 
had been three nights at Ard-Laodhach, wasting and 
plundering the churches and tjie artisans of Mac Diar- 
mada, Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada came into the country, 
and placed his creaghts around Ajd-Carníi, and from 
thence to Buill on eyery side; and he himself went upon 
Cruachan, and was proclaimed lord in the face of Con- 
chobhar, son of Conchobhar Mac Diaj-mada. And the 
Rock^ was afterwards taken by him ; and he was in the 
government of the country from thenceforth. And Mac

of good troops of one accord. Aud they proceed to meet 
O'Domhnaill in Corr-sliabh ; but this powerful, battle- 
numerous, multitude did not restrain O'Bomhnaill. 
Then it was that these two great armies advanced towards 
each other about Corr-sliabh ; and they attempted not to 
separate from each other until a great number of their 
heroes and warriors fell in that fight. O'Domhnaill was 
defeatpd on this occasion, however, and eight hundred of 
his people, or more, were slain ; and Fedhlim, the son of 
Maghnus O'Conchobhair, i.e. half-king of Counacht from 
Corr-sliabh to Drobhais, was taken prisoner there ; and 
the two Mac Suibhnes were taken prisoners there. And 
the quantity of spoils of arms, horses, clothing, and all 
kind8 of weapons and battle-dresses besidés, that were 
captured there on this occasion, cannot be calculated or 
over-reckoned. And O'DomhnaiU himself escaped from 
this defeat,' through the effect of his courage, and the 
strength of his arra. And Mac Diarmada carried off his 
captives, and his numerous spoils, after gaining triumph. 
And the ransora which Mac Diarmada exacted from 
Felim, the son of Maglmus O'Conchobhair, was, viz., the 
Clann-Maelruanaidh's share of the fifth of Cuan-Sligigh,' 
and the sons of Tadhg, son of Brian Mac Donnchadha, 
as sureties for the fulfihnent of this, on pain of the for- 
feiture of six score milch cows. And in a short time 
afterwards O'Neill, i.e. Henry Og O'Neill, went into Tir- 
Conaill with an innumerable host, and the country was 
entirely destroyed by him. And O'Domhnaill came up 
with him ; and the defeat of Bél-átha-doire was given to 
O'DomhnaiU, and he himself, i.e, Conn, fell there, and a 
great many more along with him: and the sons of 
O'DomhnaiU, viz., Domhnall and Niall' Garbh,were taken 
prisoners ; andNiall died in captivity;* and Aedh Ruadh

of Domhuall, son of Eoghan O'Conchobhair, was slain 
in ugly treachery by the son of his own father, i.e. 
Eoghan, son ctf Domhnall ; and this Cathal Og was the 
man who, of his age, had given and received most of 
all that came of the race of Brian Laighnech, son of 
Toirdhelbhach Mór. And that alone is not the character 
that we, or persons of our craft,' would give him ; but that 
therc came not in his own time, of the race of Gaeidhel 
Glas,'^ his equal in nobility, intelligence, and hospitality : 
und science is a poor orphan after him, without a man to 
sustain or foster it like Cathal. Eoghan, son of Domhnall, 
son of Eoghan, was hanged by O'Domhnaill before the end 
of three days afterwards. Mac Wiliiam Burk,i.e. Edmond,

expedition. Menma Mac Carmaic, a distiuguished lector, A.D. 
who was a bishop in Rath-Both, in Christo quie vit. ' Domh- n^i 
nall, son of Aedh Ruadh O'Domhnaill, was slain by Aedh 
Buidhe O'DomhnaiU, in Tuath-Bladhaidh, in this year.' 

The kalend8 of January; the age of the Lord one [1516.] 
thousand, five hundred, and sixteen years. The castle of 
Sligeeh was talcen by O'Domhnaill, after he had been a 
long time attacUing it, and this is the way in which it was 
taken, viz; ; a French knight came on his pilgrimage 
to Patrick'8 purgatory, and O'Domhnaill gave him great 
honour and presents. And the knight sent to O'Domh- 
naill a ship íilled with ordnance, and containing a large 
castle-breakii)g gun. And he {0' DomhnaUl) sits down 
before the castle, and demolishes the town before he 
obtained it ; and he gave protection to the warders, And 
he goes from thence into Tir-Oilelia, and takes the.castle 
of Cúl-mhaile, and the cashel' ofLoch-Dergan, and Dún- 
na-mona ; and he leaves warders in some of them, and 
carried ofFprisoners from the rest. And O'DomhnaiU held 
Sligech during thirteen years from this occasion, until 
Tadhg Og,* the son of Tadhg, son of Aedh, took it from 
him afterwards. Mac Donnchadha of the Oorann, and 
the son of Mac Donnchadha, were slain whilst going to 
join O'Domlinaill's army, by Donnchadh, son of Toir- 
dhelbhach O'BaighilL O'CerbhaiH's castle, i.e. L^im-XJi- 
Bhánáin, was taken by the Earl of Cill-dara, i.e. Earl 
Qarrett, although his father failed in theattempt to do so; 
and it is not possible that there was* at that tirae a castle 
more bravely defended and maintained, until it waa de- 
molished about the warders. A great defeat was given by

thousand, íive huudred, and twenty-one yeans. A great [í^.j 
victory was gained in Tir-Maine-mic-Echach over O'Con- 
chobhair Ruadh, i.e. Tadhg Buidhe son of Cathal Ru^dh, 
and over O'Cellaigh, i.e. Maelechlainn son of William, and 
over Mac DubhgaiU, i.e. Donnchadh son of Toirdhelbhach, 
the constable of both. The way it happened was thus, 
viz. ; they went on an expedition against the descendants 
of Donnchadh O'Cellaigh, and seized preys ; and the de- 
scendants of Donnchadh O'Cellaigh, with their muster, 
came up with them. They were defeated, moreover, iu 
the Iffemagh exactly. O'Conchobhair was taken prisoner 
there, and O'Cellaigh aud his son, i.e. Tadhg, were slain. 
Mac Dubhgaill was slain there also, and his son, i.e. Alex- 
ander, was taken prisoner ; and Conn Citech,' the son 
of Aedh, son of Eoghan O'Conchobhair, was slain thére. 
And it is not easy to enumerate all that fell there either 
by killing or capturing. A great quantity of horses, 
clothes, and battle dresses was taken from them, wjthout 
any reprisal being made therefor. Mag Aenghusa, i.e. 
Felim-an-enigh, son of Aedh, son of Art, head of humanity 
of the race of Conall Cemach, mortuus est. Edmond 
Buidhe, the son of Aedh, was inaugurated in his place. 
Rughraidhe, son of Egnechá-n O'Domhnaill, was slain by 
Foreigners at Dun-Delgan, whilst he was in the com- 
pany of O'Neili, i.e. Conn, the son of Conn. Mac Math- 
ghamhna, i.e. Redmond, son of Glaisne, died. O'Catháin, 
i.e, Thomas, son of Aibhne, died. Maelruanaidh, son of 
Cormac Mac Diarmada, died in hoc anno.

them ; and as we .learned from the distributors of news, A.D. 
and the frequenters of harbours, the French were victo- pí^n 
rious in that war against all the races. A terrible w^ar 
broke out' in Erinn itself this year, and particularly in 
the North, i.e. between O'Neill and O'DomhnaiU ; and 
Mac William of Clann-Rickard, and the Foreigners and 
Gaeidhel of Connacht, and the Sil-Briain, and Sil-Cer- 
bhaill, joined with O'Neill towards that war. O'Neiil 
went into Tir-ConaiU in great force, with the chieftains 
of Uladh, and an expeditionary force from Alba, and a 
great number of the Foreigners of Midhe, and of the Earl 
of Cill-dara's gallowglasses ; and he took the castle of Bél- 
atha-Senaigh, [and] burned Bun-Drobhaise and Bél-leci; 
and he departed safely on that occasion. And he went 
again to Tir-Conaill, soon after that, with a large army, 
and caught a prey in Cenn-Maghair, and de8troyed a 
great part of the country. O'Domhnaill, and Maghnus 
O'Domhnaill, mustered a large host to one place; and 
they went into Tir-Eoghain, and great depredati<ins and 
homicides were committed by them. O'Neill assembled a 
large armyto oneplace; andMacWiUiamof Clann-Rickard, 
i.e. Rickard, the son of Ulick, son of Ulick, son of Ulick- 
an-f hiona,'^ and the Foreigners and Gaeidhel of Connacht, 
and O'Cerbhaill, and thc descendants of O'Briain, came to 
join his muster ; and they promised to rneet one another 
in Tir-Conaill. And this Connacht army came to Sligech ; 
and O'NeiU came to Cenel-Móain, having an expeditionary 
force of Albanachs, along with the son of Mac Domh- 
naill, i.e. Alexander, and a great number of the For- 
eigners of Midhe, and of the Lagenian gallowglasses. As 
regards O'Domhnaill and the Cenel-Conaill, since they 
had not as many raen as either of these two armies, the 
resolution they adopted' was to make a night attack on 
O'Neill ; and they made infantry of their cavalry, along 
with their battalions. And O'NeiU was encamped at 
Cnoc-an-Bhobha ; and the Conallachs with one accord

feated O'Neill that night ; and a great number of hia 
people were slain, both of the men of Alba and Erinn, and 
especially several of the Foreigners of Midhe, and of the 
Lagenian gallowglasses, and the Clanu-Sithigh. And 
O'Neili retreated in disarray, after the destruction of his 
people, whilst O'Domhnaill returned triumphant, with a 
great quantity of spoils, horses, mail-armour, and wea- 
pons. And they (O'NeilVs forces) rested not until they 
encamped at Benn-Gulbain. And the two Mac WiUiams, 
and the two O'Conchobhairs, and Mac Diarmada, and 
O'Cerbhaill, and the descendants of O'Briain, were around 
Sligech with a large army ; and when they received cer- 
tain intelligence that this defeat had been given to 
O'Neill, though great the number of guards and men that 
were there, they turned back to their homes; and 
O'Domhnaill did not know of their departure until they 
had crossed Corr-sliabh ; and that military alliance was 
humbled on that occasion. Rughraidhe, son of Godfrey, 
son of Aedh Gallda,' and the son of Mac Cellaigh of the 
Breifne, were killed by O'Neill's army in front' of 
Sgairbh'indsi-infraich.* Mac Suibhne of Tir-Boghaine, 
i.e. Brian-an-chobhlaigh,'* and Diarmaid, the son of Tadhg 
Cam O'Cleirigh, and Aedh, son of Mac-an-bhaird, and 
many more besides, were slain in the castle of Bel-atha- 
Senaigh by O'Neill's army. Domhnall, the son of Donn- 
chadh® O'Ruairc, a most excellent gentleman in his own 
country, was killed by the sons of Felim O'Ruairc. 
Domhnall, son of John O'Catháin, the noblest youth of

were fit to march of those that were in the country 
before him went witli their preys into secret places, and 
dark regiona,' to hide them. O'DomhnaiU traversed all 
the country, so that he left nothing whatever of itá towns 
and corn fields without destroying on this occasion. 

The kalends of January on Friday, and a bissextile 
year ; the age of the Lord one thousand, five hundred^ 
and twenty-four years. Great inclemency of weather, 
and mortality of cattle, in the beginning of the year. 
O'Domhnaill's two sons. viz., Niall Garbh and Eoghan, 
made an alliance with each other against O'DomhnaiU ; 
and they were a while thus disturbing the country, until 
they themselves were induced to oppose oue another ; 
and Eoghan took Niall's town, i.e. the crannog of Loch- 
Bethadh, and it under his own protection. And Niall 
lefb the country ; and he made a long " expedition to 
attack the place, and lay in ambush in the neighbour- 
hood. Eoghan obtained intelligence of this, and ad vanced 
against Niall ; and they then encountered each other, and 
Eoghan was killed on the spot; and Niall was wounded, 
and he died of the wound in a short time after that ; and 
it would not be ea3y to 8ay that there came, of the Cenel- 
Conaill, any persons of their age who were greater losses 
than these two. The first month of summer these homi- 
cides were committed. James, son of Brian Uaine O'Gall- 
chubhair, intended comarb of the Carraig,^ died in hoc 
anno. Diarmaid, son of the GiUa-dubh O'Briain, the man 
of his means who was the best in his time towards the 
leamed and destitute ; who had the largest following, and 
the most truly prodigious hospitality ; who was the best 
man for reconciling friends and enemies, and the most 
expected to live to enjoy thé wealth of his inheritance, 
and who was in general the greatest companion of the

and overran the countrj ; and he afterwards returned safe. 
A hosting into Tir-Conaill against O'Domhnaill, by the 
Justiciarj, i.e. Garrett Og, son of Garrett, Eari of Cill-dara, 
and by O'Neill, i.e. Conn, the son of Conn, in the middle 
month of harvest ; and another hosting by O'DomhnaiU, 
to meet them, in defence of his own country. And a great 
number of Albanachs came to him about this time, viz., 
the sons of John Cathánach, and Mac Domhnaill Gallog- 
laech, and other nobles out of Alba. The Justiciary and 
O'Neill fixed their camp at Port-na-tri-námhad ; and 
O'Domhnaill, with his army, went to Druim-Lighen ; 
and there was á promise of battle between them on the 
morrow. Maghnus O'Domhnaill and the Albanachs went 
to harass the army of the Foreigners that night, aud 
O'Brain's son,^i.e. the Calbhach, son of Bran, son of Tadhg, 
a great loss in his own country, was slain by them. And 
a conference of peace was agreed to between thera on the 
moiTow, when the Ju3ticiary made peace between O'Neill 
and O'Domhnaill, he himself being a guarantee between 
them; and peace and gossipred were also concluded 
between. the Ju8ticiary and O'Domhnaill. And when 
the Justiciary and O'Neillwere returning,theyfound Aedh, 
son of Niall, son of Conn, son of Aedh Buidhe, son of Brian 
Ballagh O'Neili, with a large host destroying Tir-Eoghain. 
And when he heard that these great armieswere approach- 
ing him, he sent his own host on before him with his prey8, 
and with their spoils ; and he himself remained a long 
way behind them, with a few men, until the entire mass 
of the other army overtook him. And they attacked him, 
on finding him expoaed to danger ; and he was killed by 
them in that place. And there came not of the Cenel-

and one wbo less allowed his enemies to oppress hiui, a.d. 

and who better defended his own native territory up to [1524.] 

that hour : for he was the leader of his sept, and the 

true fountain of generosity, and the head guardian of the 

poetic ordef, and the flashing light-star of the race of 

Aedh Buidhe O'Neill. And further, we don't think it 

superfluous to say that he did not leave in Erinn any one, 

of the nobles of the Foreigners or Gaeidhel, who was a 

greater loss' to the learned than this Aedh, son of Niall, 

son of Conn, et ceteni. Mac Uibhih'n, i.e. Cormac, and the

tion, and the greatest benefactress to Orders and men of 

learning, died in the middle month of spring ; and as this 

couple* shared humanity and reputation with each other 

in the world, to the time of their decease, so may their souls 

share glory with each other in the kingdom of God. Mac 

Donnchadha of Tir-Oilella, i.e. Ruaidhri, son of Tomaltach, 

son of Brian, died ; and a great war occurred amongst 

the Clann-Donchadha regai-ding the sovereignty of the 

country ; and Cormac, son of Tadhg, son of Brian, was 

made Mac Donnchadha. O'Conchobhair Ciarraidhe, i.e. 

Conchobhar, son of Conchobhar, went on a foray into Duth- 

aidh-Ealla; and Cormac Og, son of Cormac, son of Tadhg,' 

overtook him, and O'Conchobhair was defeated, and he 

himselfwaswounded and taken prisoner there; and Con- 

chobhar, son of Diarmaid, son of the Gilla-dubh O'Briaiu,

ia his companj, regarded with great love and friendship ; A.D. 

and the Earl of Cill-dara carried off all whom he caught [1525.1 

of those who had a hand in that deed, to the place where 

this evil counsel was adopted, and he coramanded that 

they should be first flayed alive, and their bowels and 

entrails taken out of them, and burned respectively in 

their presence. O'Catháin, i.e. John, the son of Thomas, 

was killed by some of his own people, i.e. by the son of 

Ruaidhri-an-Rúta' O'Catháin, and by the son of Godfrey 

O'Catháin, on Lammas night exactly. The bishop of 

Cill-Dalua died, i.e. Toirdhelbhach, son of Mathghamh- 

ain O'Briain ; i.e. the Gaeidhel who received the most, and 

dispensed it the best, of all who were in his tin)e: and 

this bishop was a man of eminent general hospitality 

towards all ; and a man for defending his right at home 

and abroad, with or without consent;"^ and a man for 

frequently setting large armies against each other, to 

de8troy his enemies, and subdue his adversaries; so 

that there was not near him in his own country, nor in 

any neighbouring country, any son of a Gaeidhel who 

had not received his earnings and wages from him. 

And furthermore ; this Bishop O'Briain was the calamity 

beyond all calamities, and the loss beyond all losses, that 

occurred in regard to learning in his time. The Dean, 

son of Brian Ruadh Mac Conmidhe, a man who kept n 

general house of hospitality for every one, and his son, 

i.e. Cerbhall Mac Conmidhe, died in hoc' anno. Tho 

daughter of O'Duibhgennain,* i.e. Catherine, died after 

unction and penitence, on the festival of Colum Cille, 

and was honourably interred in the monastery of Dun-

The kalends of January on Monday. The age of the [1526.]

Ju8ticiary, to make peace between* the Conallachs and A.D. 
Eoghanachs ; and after several nobles of the Foreigners [i62&] 
and Gaeidhel had assembled to pacify them, they coiild 
not be reconciled there ; and they went home unreconciled. 
O'Raighilligh, ie. Eoghan, died ; and a great war occurred 
amongst his people regarding the sovereignty of the 
country, until Ferghal, son of John, was proclaimed the 
O'Raighilligh, by the decision of the Justiciary, and of 
many of the nobles of the Foreigners and Gaeidhel, 
although older men than he were claiming it. A great 
wat broke out in Lower Connacht thia year, and the 
majority of them all, including Brian, son of Felim O'Con- 
chobhair, and the sons of Cathal Og O'Conchobhair, 
and the descendants of Cormac Mac Donnchadha, joined 
together against O'DomhnaiU; and the lower part of 
Caú-bre waa })illaged by them. And O'Domhnaill de- 
molished the Grainsech, and went afterwards to Magh- 
Luii^, and the countrj was destroyed and bumed by him. 
Those of the Sil-Conchobhair and Clann-Donnchaidh who 
were engaged in that war assembled, and went to 
Sligech, and attacked the caatle bravely, until a good man 
of their people, ie. Ruaidhri Ballagh, son of O'hAirt, waa 
slain. They departed on that day ; but they assembled 
again in a short time, and went to Sligech, to destix>y 
corn-fields, and to atiack the town. And O'Domhnaill 
received intelligence of their being thus engaged ; and he 
moved against them, and came up with them ; and they 
were defeated by hira, and a great number of their men 
were captured from them, and a great spoil of horsea, 
arms, and mail-armour.' O'Neill, i.e. Conn, went with a 
large army to prevent the construction of a castle which 
Maghnus O'Domhnaill had commenced to build at Port- 
na-tri-uamhad ; and Maghnus met with the advance of 
the army, and the son of John O'Neill, ie. Henry, was 
taken prisoner by him ; and O'NeUl went off in broken 
array. O'Cathíiin, i.e. Godfrey, son of Godfrey, was killed

a long time imprisoned by O'NeiU, were hanged by him in a.d. 
hoc anno. Eoghan, son of Tigheman, son of Eoghan r 15321 
O'Ruairc, a most exceUent gentleman in his own poaition, 
was slain by the sons of O'Maelmhiadhaigh in the Friars' 
town,' in Druim-dhá-ethiar. The son of Mac Flann- 
chaidh, i.e. Toirdhelbhach, was slain by his own two 
brothers in the doorway of Mac Flannchaidh's resi- 
dence ; and Brian O'Ruairc destroyed much in Dartraighe 
through that. The daughter of Mac Suibhne Fánad, i.e. 
Mary, O'Paighill's wife, died suddenly; i.e. she was 
thrown from her horse in tho doorway of her own 
residence. O'Maelconaire, i.e. Torna, the son of Torna, 
mortuus est ; and Conchobhar, son of Domhnall Ruadh 
O'Maelconaire, was proclaimed the O'Maelconaire in his 
place ; and he died quickly after that. The castle of Ard- 
na-riadh was taken by the sons of O'Dubhda against the 
son of John Burk; and a war broke out between themselves 
and the descendants of Rickard Burk, and many depreda- 
tions and homicides were committed between them, in hoc 
anno. O'Cerbhaill, i.e. Maelruanaidh, the noblest and 
most iUustrious Gaeidhel that was in Leth-Modha, and 
who destroyed most in regard to Foreigners, and ipa- 
proved most in regard to Gaeidheí, died in hoc 
anno. The comarb of Fídhnacha, i.e, Brian, died. Mac 
(Jidhilíu, i.e. Walter, son of Garrett, was killed in the 
church of Dún-bó ; aud Conchobhar, son of O'Catháin, a 
very rich, affluent man, was burned, and Mac Conuladh, 
i.e. James, the son of Art Mac Conuladh, was taken 
prisoner there. The sons of Domhnall Clerech O'Catháin 
committed those deeds. The son of the Earl of Ur- 
Mumha, i.e. Thoraas, son of Piers Ruadh, was slain in 
Osraighe by Diarmaid Mac Gilla-Patraic, intended king 
of Osraighe. And this was very nearly " Maelmor's feat;"' 
for it was not long afterwards until Diarmaid was delivered 
by his own brother, i.e. by Mac Gilla-Patraic, to the Earl of 



Maelraor, who was immediatelj' killed 
himself in return. Ilence the itroverb 
"tlic fate of Maelmor"' Í!f used to cx- 



press sudden retaliation. Se<! Chron,

of the Saxons ; and the Earl was put to death — i.e. the 
Foreigner' of greatest account that was in Erinn in his 
own time ; and the Earl's son, i.e. Thomas, ruined the 
king of the Saxon's people in Erinn with war ; i.e. he 
demolished the residences of, and exacted their pledges 
from, all who were faithful to the king of the Saxons 
throughout Midhe. And the archbishop of Baile-atha- 
ch'ath was killed by the Earl's son'* in this war. And a 
Saxon Justiciary came to Erinn from the king ; and the 
majority of the towns of the Earl's son were demolished ; 
and all Midhe was ruined both church and territory; and 
numerous injuries were comiaitted between them. And 
Magh-Nuadhad' was taken by the Saxon Justiciary ; and 
many eminent persons* of the people of the Earl's son 
were slain there. O'Conchobhair Ruadh,i.e. Tadhg Buidhe,

the Justiciary, and he himself, and his partizans, had been A.D. 
expelled from Meath, and driven to seek the protection of [1535.] 
Síl-Briain and O'Conchobhair Failghe, when he waged a 
great, good war. Then it was that there came to Erinn a 
powerful man of the king of the Saxons' people, i.e. Lord 
Leonard ;' and he went to meetthe Earl's son, and practised 
deceit towards him, and promised him a pardon on the 
ki)ig's part ; and he took him with him to Saxon-land. 
The Earl's son was apprehended, and placed in the king's 
tower in captivity ; and Lord Leonard came back to Erinn. 
And the Justiciary who was here in Erinn died, i.e. Wil- 
liam Sgemeltíin,' and Lord Leonard assumed the king's 
government in Erinn ; aud he brought the sons of the 
great Earl of Cill-dara under his own guardian.ship,viz., the 
sons of Garrett, soa of Thoma^, viz., James, Oliver, John, 
and Richard. And after having been in the confidence, 
and under the guardianship, of Lord Leonard, and they in 
his own company, they were all at once apprehended by 
him; ánd he sent them to the king of the Saxons; 
and they were placed in the king's tower, where the 
heir to the earldom was, i.e. Thomas, the Earl's son. 
After they themselves and Thomas, moreover, had been 
more than a year in captivity in the fcing's tower, they 
were put to death in presence of the iuhabitants of 
the city. And there never came, of the Foreigners 
of Erinn, a mari of his own age whose death was a 
greater calamity and loss,' a» regards nobility, and 
hospitality, and captain.ship, than this Thoroas the Earl's 
íion, And no greater sermnn* occurred in latter times than 
the quicknes8 with which the heirs of the earldom were 
exterrainated out of Erinn, although thej'- had the power

Maelechlainn, son of Caiibre O'Bim, was killed' by the

was a great loss, for it is doubtful if there was in Erúm 
a better chieftain's son of his estate, in wisdom, bounty, 
and excellence, than he. Conchobhar, son of Eoghan 
Mac Donnchadha, and Aedh, son of the Cananach, were

went against the descendants -of E-ichard Burk, at the 
instigation of the Bishop Barrett. And the herds^ of 
the country went before them to the termon of Oiremh ; 
and the bishop foUowed them uj)on the termon, and 
Ibrought the herds to the army ; and restitution was not 
given by them in honour of saint or sanctuary. The

Muirchei'taigh. Nevertheless, it was to exalthis family, and ^-^- 
to excel the kings preceding him, that he was proclaimed [1636. j 
by this change of name. This new O'Conchobhair, and 
the son of Cathal Og 9'Conchobhair, went on an expedi- 
tion into Clann-Goisdelbh ; and they brought their armies 
about Cill-Colmain, i.e. tbe town of the son of Rughraidhe

into the hands of O'Conchobhair, bringing with him a 
proof ' coat of maiP which he had, i.e. Mac Feorais's coat 
of raaiL And O'Conchobhair carried this hostage with 
him to Sligecli ; and they did not get many spoils except 
that alone. And he (O'Conchobhair) received his full 
ransom for this hostage. Conchobhar Garbh, son of 
Cathal Mac Diarmada, was slain by the son of O'Birn, in 
the Coill-aimhréidh.' O'Ruairc was brought by Ruaidhri, 
the son of Tadhor Mac Diarmada, to besie^e the castle* of 
Cenn-maighe ; and they demolished the place, and killed 
tlie warders, viz., Cathal, son of Cormac Og, and Ferghal, 
son of Brian, and all who were there besides. Ruaidhri- 
na-ttulán, son of Diarmaid, son of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, 
and the sons of Cathal, son of Ruaidhri Mac Diamiada, 
were banished out of Magh-Luirg by Ruaidhri, son of 
Tadhg Mac Diarmada, (and some of them were sent to 
Tuadh-Mumha, and some more to Tir*Conaill), through 
the killing of Maelsechlainn O'Birn, who was the true 
foster-brother of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada. A long, lasting, 
war between O'Domhnaill and the chiefs of Lower 
Connacht, except Brian O'Ruairc alone, who gave his 
assistance to neither of them this time. A great muster by 
O'Domhnaill, viz., Mag Uidhir, and the son of O'Neill, i.e. 
Niall Og, the son of Art, and the son of O'Raighilligh, i.e.

but remained about Maghnus O'Domlinaill, (for he did a.d, 
not come in this great array, because he was in discord r{^-| 
with his father). And the Clann-Súibhne, and O'BaighiU, 
with their warlike and valorous bands, came also in this 
muster of O'Domhnaill, as was the custom with thera. 
This charmed, ready, army moved late in the day from 
Ath-Senaigh, and occupied a resting place and encamp- 
ment between Dubh and Drobhais. And after they had 
eaten their food, they sent watchers and sentineis to guai'd 
the army from the danger of a camp attack being made 
upon them by the Sil-Conchobhair, with their muster ; 
for they were assembled in one place in Sligech, and had 
promisefd battle to O'DomhnailJ. And the first who went 
on the watch was O'Baighill ; for he thought that he 
might fínd some of his opponents and advei-saries, in 
Lower Connacht, coming to make a camp attack on 
this army of O'DomhnailI. And Aedh Buidhe O'Domh- 
naill'tí people went on the watch^ in like manner; and 
O'Baighill and they encountered each other in the 
twilight of the earlymorning. And the pcople of O'Domh- 
naill's son advancevi against, and towards, O'Baighill 
withhis cavalry,takingthemfor a partybelongingtoLower 
Connacht. It was not with fear, nor with a desire to flee, 
that O'Baighill received this attack of his enemies, (for he 
waspositively certain that it was they who were approach- 
ing him) ; but O'BaighiU made a vehement, sudden, rush 
to wards them, and to meet them ; and he stayed not under 
their protection,' but went unguardedly amongst them, so 
that he received his death miserably, unfortunately, by 
his own true friends. And a very great loss to paupers 
and orphans, to the infirm and to professors, was this 
eminent raan, i.e,, Niall O'Baighill. This great calamity, 
however, did not prevent O'DomhnaiU from attempting,

and continuing, to pass that way ; and aft-Gr the approach a.D. 
of day he goes as far as Findir ; and he rested and re- r j^ -i 
mained in that place until the rising of the sun on the 
morrow. The cavalry of Cathal Og's son, viz,, Muinter- 
Airt, advance towards Braghad-Chuillidh. They meet 
some of the cavahy of the army,' and both parties proceed 
to attackeach other in Belach-Dúin-iarainn. A horseman 
of Muinter-Airt is slain in this conflict,' and they separate 
from one another, O'Dorahnaill remains in liis own 
encampment that night; and he rises in the morning 
following, and goes to Fersad-ranna-in-liagain,' to go 
across it into Cuil-irra. O'Concliobhair was in Sligecb, 
with his muster, arraying his people to go against 
O'Domhnaill to Fersad-ranna-in-liagain,' (where Liagán, 
a heroic warrior of the Fomorians, was killed by Lugh 
Lamhfada,* when coming to the battle of Magh-Tuiredh, 
where the Fomorians were imposing their tributes on the 
men of Erinn for a long time before that— so that it 
was from him this ford was named). And whilst the 
fuU tide was in the ford these armies were taking an 
estimate* of each other ; and the resolution which O'Con- 
chobhair adopted^ was, since he had not as many men as 
O'Domhnaill, and as O'DomnailI had put his forces in 
order, and fixed his great gun^ in front of the ford, not to 
oppose him at the ford, but to ivait until lie would find 
him unprepared in another place. O'DomhnaiIl goes 
across the ford, when he found it without defence, with- 
out protection ; and a number of the chieftains of Lower 
Connacht go to demand battlo from O'DomhnaiIl's people.

This demand had scarcely been responded to, when A.D. 

they proudly, furi.ously, attacked each otlier. A person [Í53G.] 

of very great note of the Clann-Donnchaidh was killed in 

this conflict, i.e. Maelechlainn, the son of Tadhg, son of 

Ruaidhri ; and by a shot of a gun he was killed. Auother 

borseman of O'DomhnaiU's people was killed there by a 

cast of a spear, i.e. James Ballach,' the son of Niall, 

son of John. They separate from cach other. O'Domh- 

naill goes into the country of Brian O'Conchobhair's 

descendants, and was three nights destroying corn, and 

burning towns and moora. O'Conchobhair was at Bel-an- 

droichit in an encampment. O'Domhnaill goes across the 

strand* westwards to Tir-Fiachrach-Muaidhe, and des- 

troys therein a great quantity of corn, and many towns, 

and much of every other kind of property; for the 

country was in their own power, except some of its 

castles ; and he seized a great quantity of thc herds of thc 

country around Sliabh-Gamh. They proceed westwards 

across the Muaidh, at the invitation of the descendants of 

Richard Burk, in pursuit of some of the herds of the sons 

of O'Dubhda. The daughter of Walter Burk is seized by 

them, i.e. the wife of Eoghan O'Dubhda, togetlier with 

his prey. So immense were the spoils and herds obtained 

by O'Domhnaill, that a bcef, or two beeves, would be 

given there for one bonn,^ and even this would not 

be got for them. Mac Diarmada, and the sons of 

Tadhg Mac Diarmada, and the sons of Mac David, went 

to assist those of Lower [Connacht] against O'Domh- 

naiU. O'Domhnaill tums back, after accomplishing his ex- 

pedition and journey into tbat country as he wished ; and 

those chieftains of Lower Connacht were prepared to give 

battle to O'Domhnaill on his retum home ; but tliey ouly 

made a slight attack, for O'Domhnaill rested not from the 

time he left Tir-Fiachrach until he went to Druim-cliabh; 

and he was always in battle array during that time. A

The son of O'Dochartaigh, i.e. Niall Caech, the son of 
Gerald, son of Domhnall, son of Felim, was killed in a 
nocturnal conflict by Rudhraidhe, the son of Felim 
O'Dochartaigh, in Baile-na-gcananach, in the tennon of 
Doire ; and they say that it was not well done.' 
O'Flannagain of Tuath-ratha, i.e. Gilla-Isa, and his son, 
were wickedly* slain by the rest of his tribe ; and many 
evils were committed in Feara-Manach after Mag Uidhir's 
death. Depredatioiis and bui-nings were committed by 
the Calbhach O'Domhnaill upon the Clann-Amhlaibh, 
and another depredation was committed by him upon

of the place,' and obtained from them directions for taking 
it. And the plan they invented for him was, that he 
should go to the place in the night, and fix ladders to the 
Rock f and they went in, and captured Mac Diarmada and 
his son, i.e. Maelruanaidh. And they were half a yeai* 
in captivity, when an arrangement took place between 
them ; and the persons who intervened^ were O'Concho- 
bhair Donn, and O'Beim, aud the principal men of the 
country along with them; and the arrangement they made 
was that half the lordship, and the Rock with its free- 
dom, should he given by Aedh Mac Diarmada to Ruaidhri 
Mac Diarmada during his own life. The son of O'Domii-

Niall, son of Conn, son* of Art O'Neill, a good son of a

of Ath-cliath, working numerous prodigies and miracles 
in Erinn from the time of Saint Patrick to that date, and 
which had been in Christ's own hand, was bumed by 
Saxons* in like manner; and not alone this, but there 
was not in Erinn a holy cross, or a figure of Mary, or an 
iUustrious image, over which their power reached, that was 
not buraed. And furthermore, there was not an Order of 
the seven Orders in their power that they did not destroy. 
And the pope, and the chureh abroad and at home,' were 
excotomunicating the Saxoris on account thereof ; but they 
had neither f espect nor regard for that, &c. (And I am not 
certain that it is not in the last year above the buming 
of those relics should be).* Brian, son of Eoghan, son of 
Conchobhar, son of Ruaidhri Buidhe, died this year.'

Murchadh, the son of O'Briain, i.e. the son of Toirdhelbh- 
ach, son of Tadhg, was made king in his place, as his own 
raerits up to that time deserved. O'NeiU, i.e. Conn, was 
in Dun-na-nGall this year about Easter, and a munificent, 
honorable, entertainment was provided by O'Domhnaill 
during his stay, as was becoming; and O'NeiU and

against Foreigners any army by which more of thé pffq- [1539.] 
perty of Midhe was destroyed than this army, or which 
had more prodigious spoils of gold, and silver, and copper, 
and iron, and of all other goods besides ; and p&.rticularly, 
the Umamá,' and the town of Ath-Firdiadh, were com- 
pletely pillaged by them, both of treasures, apparel, and 
all other goods besides. And on the return of these armies, 
and they fuli of haughtiness and ])ride, the Justiciary, 
i.e. Lord Leonard, followed them with the entire muster 
of the large towns, and of Midhe, both ecclesiastical andr 
lay, and all the Saxons that were in Erinn, and the fleets 
that were in the harbours on each side of them, i.e., 
at least a very large fleet which was on Cairlinné. And 
these musters of the Justiciarycame up with the Gaeidhelic 
army in Oirghiall, i.e. exactly in Ferna, i.e. in Bel-atha- 
hOa. And the Gaeidhelic army had not suceeeded in 
getting into proper array ; nor did they act on the counsel 
of their chieftains, to defend or sustain themselves; 
but they went away in a disorderly manner, and left a 
great quantity of their own spoils, and of the spoils of the 
Foreigners, to the Justiciary'8 army. And they lost' no 
inen of hote, although they went away in disorder ; ao 
that Maelmuire Mergech,^ the son of John Mac Suibhne, 
was the person of greatest account lost there by the 
Conallachs. Mag Aenghusa, i.e, Muirchertach, was taken 
prisoner by some of the Oirghialla, he ha^^ng been left, 
with a few attendants, afber separating from his people on 
this march ; and he was 8ecretly in captivity for a while, 
until treachery was afterwards practised upon him by the 
advice -of somo of his kindred, viz., to accept a reward 
in consideration of putting him to death, &c. Niail Og

Tlie kalends of January on Thm-sday ; the age of the A.D. 
Lord one thousand, íive hundred, and forty years. The [1540.] 
two sons of Walter, son of Ilickard, viz., Rickard and 
Thomas, were slain this year. The monaster^ of Cluain- 
ramhfhada was this year given to the Poor Friars De 
Observantia, by command' of O'Briain and the nobles of 
Tuadh-Mumha, and by the consent and advice of the 
superiors of these two orders, viz., of Saint Francis and 
De Observantia. The Saxous, wherever tliey established 
their power throughout Erinn, were expeliing thc re- 
mainder of these orders; and they destroyed, esptícially, 
ihe monastery of Muinechan ; aiid tho guardian of the 
place, together with several of the friars, was beheaded* 
by them. The caatle of Liath-truim was ei'ected this 
year by O'Ruairc, i.e. by Brian, the son of Eoghaii 
O'Ruairc, althougli great wars were waged against liim 
on all sides, viz., from Magh-Luirg, and from Muinter- 
Eolais, and from Breifne'-O'Raighilligh ; and his own son,* 
and some of the men of Breifne,^ were at war with him also. 
And he built the castle in a very short time, and destroyed 
much throughout Magh-Luirg, and against the mili- 
tants, &LC. O'BaighiU's two sons, viz., Niall and Concho- 
bhar, fellby each other this year;^ vÍ2.,Niall went to seek 
Conchobhar in Luachrus, and lay a night iii wait for hiin 
in Tempul-Sencháin ; and Conchobhar passed along the 
counti'y on the morrow, with his own servants, and Niall 
and his people went after him from the church. And when 
Conchobhar perceived them coming towards him, he was 
proceeding westwards acrossthe strand of Luachrus; and 
his people separated from him ; and Niali followed hini 
very quickly, in advance of his own company, and over- 
took Conchobhar against his will. And Conchobhar

Donnchadh Cairhrech' and John of Lurg,' were warring 
agamst O'Domhnaill ; and they had the Crannóg of Loch- 
Bethach, and were disturbing the coimtry greatly from 
it. And O'Domhnaill captured them both; and Egnechan,' 
the son of O'Domhnaill, was captured in the town of the 
Congmhail. And John O'Domhnaill was hanged by him ; 
and Egnechan^ and Donnchadh were placed in coníine- 
ment, under great bondage and hardship ; and the crannóg 
of Loch-Bethach was destroyed by O'DomhnailI. O'Doch- 
ai-taigh, i.e. Gerald, the soji of Domhnall, son of Felim, 
a man of nobleness, hospitality, and graceful íigure, died 
this year, after spending his natural age up to that time 
in dx)ing acts of good and humanity. Domhnall, son of 
Niall O'Baighill, was made the O'Baighill this year. 
The Justiciary that was in Erinn, i.e. Lord Leonard,* 
went to Saxon-land, at the summons of the king of the 
Saxons, after destroying the orders, masses, and miracu- 
lous relics of all Erinn ; after committing numerous evíls 
which it would be long to relate ; and another Justiciaiy 
was sent in his stead, ie. Handalin Salesder.* The king 
of Alba sent a sunmions to the chiefs of the Albanachs 
who were here ; and they went to him to the harbour 
in which he was ; and he brought them into the ship 
in which he himself was, and took them prisoners, both 
Foreigners and GaeidheL And he released his Foreigners 
in a short time afterwards, and kept the son of Mac 
Domhuaill, i.e. James, in coníinement ; and all he found 
serving with him, of his kindred and people, were kept 
in confinement in like manner ; and all that were sub- 
missive to them were afterwards exiled by the king. 
John, the son of Conn O'DomhnaiU, was slain by the 
sons of Murchadh Mac Suibhne-na-ttuath in hoc anno. 
Una, daughter of Maclruanaidh, son of Cormac^ Mac 
Diarmada, died. Tadhg, son of Brian, son of Maghnus

And in a short time afterwards the sons of Donnchadh, 
viz., Domhnall and Fer-gan-ainm, made an attack on the 
crannóg, and secretlj bumed the place. And they are 
ob.served, and pursued into the lake ; and the sons of

O'Domhnaill, i.e. Maghnus, the son of Aedh Dubh, son 
of Aedh Ruadh, to meet the Justiciary ; and the' country 
was ruined by them on this expedition. Tho Justiciary 
advanced into Midhe, and O'DomhnaiU turned back to 
Tir-ConaiU; and he received neither battlc nor encounter 
this time whilst paíísing tlirough Tir-Eoghain, in coming

along the eastem side of the lake,* into Feara-Manach ; 
and Cuil-na-noirer, and the eastern side of the lake, wero 
destroyed by him, both country and lake, on this occasion; 
for* he had boats and vessels pillaging the islands, and 
the army destroying the country ; so that he left them 
greatly in want of corn this year. Another hosting by

land, until they reached Inis-Sgéithlend.* And they 
broke and threw down the castle of Inis-Ceithlionn* on 
that occasion,' and retumed 8afely in triumph. DomhnaU,

O'BaighiU this year, Domhnall having gone to assist 
Toirdhelbhach, son of O'BaighilI, against O'Baighill } (they 
had first given an onset to O'Baighill ; and O'BaighiU 
turned tipou them and gave them an onset, and routed 
them ; and this son of Niall O'Domhnaill was slain in that 
onset), Mac~in-Bhaird of Tir-Conaill, i.e. Conchobhar 
Ruadh, the son of Ferghal, an eminent poet in learning 
and poetry, and a man who maintained a house of 
hospitaUty for aU persons, died thÍ8year.'^ Henry Buidhe 
Mac David, the son of Edmond, i.e. the lord of Clann- 
Conmhaigh, was kiUed by Toirdhelbach Ruadli, the son 
of Tadhg Buidhe, son of Cathal Ruadh.^

i.e. of Ruaidhri, the son of Tadhg, son of Ruaidhri Og, 
son of Ruaidhri Caech, and his children's mother, died 
on Carraig-na-righ, i.e. the abode of the hospitaUty and 
dignity of the Clann-MaeUuanaidh ; and it is doubtful if 
there ever came of the posterity of WiUiam the Con- 
queror,* a woman of her age better than she in hospitaUty 
and worth, in prudence and piety, in charity and UberaUty. 
On Maunday Thursday her soul and body separated from 
each other, after the triumph of unction and penitence.' 
A hosting was made by Mac WiUiam of Clann-Rickard

goodness and in prowess, was drowned there. It is not 
possible to calculate or enumerate all the preys and spoils 
that O'Domhnaill and his army obtained throughout 
the entire country, after destroying much that cannot be 
reckoned. Mac Uibhilin came to meet O'Domhnaili, and ■ 
gave him his own award of horses, and armour, and 
cows ; and they forthwith concluded peace ; and O'Domh-

this year, i.e. a haugh.ty and proud lord, who reduced 
and subjected a great number of Gaeidhel under his own 
yoke. And a great war broke out in Clann-Rickard 
after him ; viz., Ulick, the son of Rickard Og,* was pro- 
claimed the Mac William, and a great part of country and 
neighbourhood' w»is opposed to him, along with the son of 
Mac Wiiliam, i.e, Thomas, the son of Ulick-na-gcenn. And

Mumha, the Earl of Ur-Mumha, and the Earl of Cill-dara), 
and Donnchadh, the son of Conchobhar O'Briain. All 
these obtained great honour from the King ; and O'Neill, 
O'Briain, and Ulick-na-gcenn, were made earls. And the 
province of the Gaillimh was taken* from Ulick-na-gcenn 
at that council ; and he himself died in the end of this

notabilities of his sept). They are afterwards routed, 
and their preys are taken from them ; and Donnchadh 
Riabhach, and the majority of his people, escape with 
difficulty. Treachery was practised by the sons of 
Alexander Mac Caba against O'Ruairc, in his own town, 
i,e. the Baile-níia.® This treachery recoiled upon them- 
selves, and they were both slain, viz., John and Maelsech-

the son of J ohn, son of Walter Mac Goisdelbh ; and in this 
wise it was done : i.e. Jordan Buidhe came to Magh-Luirg, 
with eighteen followers, to scek stolen property, andBrian 
encountered him with onlj'^ six men. Brian was heavLly 
wounded, whereupon the band submitted ; and the Gilla-

the son of John, son of William, son of Edmond, and 
WiJliam CaiTagh, the son of Edmond, son of Thomas,* 
and many more, were slain by them ; and they returued 
with difliculty themselves. The prince of the Saxons

that there came not in later times a better king than 
this king ; and his daughter* was crowned in his place,

O'Conchobhair Donn, i.e. Diarmaid, the son of Cairbre, [1548.] 
son of Eoghan Caech, and Mac Diarmada, i.e. Ruaidhri, 
the son of Tadhg Mac Diarmada, and Tomaltach, son of 
Tadhg Mac Diarmada, and the sons of Mac Diarmada, 
viz., Maelruanaidh and Brian — all these, and some of the 
gallowglasses of Clann-Suibhne and Clann-Dubhgall, and 
a great many other people who are not enumerated here, 
went on a hosting to Clann-Maurice ; and Rickard Mac 
Maurice i.e. the young abbot, was killed by them, and 
Fitz Gerald's castle, i.e. the Caislén-cael,' was taken ; and 
one or two hundred men were put to death between these 
two places.'* And they brought nine or ten hundred 
C0W8 with them, and ten horses, and came safely them- 
selves. Loch-na-cuanfadha was occupied, and the country 
plundered, by O'Ruairc and Mac Diarmada, the same 
month. Aenghus, son of Toirdhelbhach, son of Colla Mac 
Domhnaill, was killed by Maelnianaidh, the son of 
Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, on Bealach-an-dairin ; and he 
brought a prey from the Clann-Domhnaill on the same 
day.' Mor, daughter of Maelruanaidh, son of John 
O'Cerbhaill, the best woman that was in Erinn in her 
own time, i.e. the Earl of Des-Mumha's wife,* died. The 
sons of Tadhg Buidhe, son of O'Conchobhair Donn, were 
slain in Uaran by the descendants of Felimy Clerech 
O'Conchobhair, viz., John and Felimy. 

The kalends of January on Sunday;* the age of the [1649.] 
Lord one thousand, five huudred, and forty-nine years. 
Aedh, Bon of Cormac, son of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, 
abbot of the Buill, and lord of the Clann-Maelruanaidh, 
in one person, died after communion and sacrifice, after 
suffering numerous dangers from his own tribe, and 
from other enemies, Nevertheless, it would not be too 
much if the lordship of Connacht belonged to him, from 
the extent of his bounty and nobility, and the amount of 
his gifbs and wages. May God repay it to his soul.

Ruaidhri, son of Tadhg, son of Ruaidhri Og Mac Diarraada, A.D. 
was made king in his place; and although Aedh's ex- ríJía] 
cellence was great, Ruaidhri in his place was not a 
stone in tlie place of an egg. A school invitation' was 
given hy Mac Diarmada, i,e. RuaidJiri, at Christmas of 
this year ; and it is not possible to count or over-reckon 
all that he gave to the poets, and professors, and leamed 
men of Erinn,'' and to all raen besides, A good son of 
Mac Diarniada, i.e. Ma«lruanaidh, the sou of Ruaidliri 
Mac Diarmada, gave the like invitation, and distributed 
much of the world's riches to the men of Erinn, after 
the example of his father. This Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada 
secured, and íirmly established, many of the neighbouring 
and distant territories under his govemment and hea^^ 
tribute, for he exacted two hundred cows from the 
two Mag RaghnaiUs, and one hundred cows from Mac 
Donnchadhaof theCorann, and sixty cows f rom O'Gadhra; 
forty-eight cows from O'hAinlighe, and forty-eight cowa

and twenty-four cows from the descendants of Toir-

bonaghtmen^ from the descendants of Tadhg, son of Brian 
Mac Donnchadlia, and twenty shilHngs rent every year 
therewith, And he imposed a tribute on the descendants 
of Ruaidhri Mac Donnchadha, in Cúil-Degha, and a tribute 
on the descendants of Aedh Buidhe,* and on the Slicht- 
Muirghesa,* and a tribute on the descendants of Dubhgall 
Gruama.'^ Great depredations were committed by Mac 
Diarmada on the descendants of Donnchadh O'Cellaigh ; 
and he burned their portion of country, And he took

Cathal Og, son of Cormac Mac Donnchadha, was lcilled 
by Mac Donnchadha of the Corann, i.e. by Cairbre, on 
Sith-riabhach.* A castle was erected in Leim-na-£rirra,^ 
by tiie sons of Donnchadh Dubli, son of Conchobhar ;* and

The kalends of January on Monday ;' the age of the

deposed by the Earl of Clann-Rickard, i.e. Rickai'd 
Saxanach ; and Diarmaid, the son of Cairbre, son of

The kalends of January on Tuesday f the age of the

The Earl of Clann-Rickard went to Ros-Comáin, to de- 
mand Ros-Comain from the sons of Tadhg Buidhe O'Con- 
chobhair; and he did notget the town. And he advances 
with his army to Tobur-Ailbhe, where the fortress of Mac 
Diarmada was, i.e. Ruaidhri, son of Tadhg Mac Diarmada; 
and this army of the Earl was distributed throughout 
Mac Diarmada's fortress during two days and a niglit. 
But truly, it is doubtful if there was in Erinn a fortress 
in which cows and horses, armour and ordnance, music 
and wine, were more plentiful than that fortress of Mac 
Diarmada; for there was not a man from Cúl-Mhaile 
to Sliabh-Badhun, nor from Bel-atha-hachaidh to the 
Sionainn, that was not in that fortress of Mac Diai-mada. 
The Earl leaves the fortress soon after, and takes Mac

Fever seized hira ; and his people commit seven depre-

Carragh, son of Mac Donnchada of the Corann, gave one

the world and the devil. O'Briain died, i.e, Murchadh, 
the son of Toirdhelbhach ; and there came not of the race 
of Brian, son of Cennedigh, for a long time previously, a 
peiTSon of greater account than he. The defeat of the 
upper Munchind was given to Jordan Buidhe, the son 
of John, son of Walter Mac Goisdelbh, by the descendants 
of Muirchertach Mac Diarmada Ruadh, in which a scoro

of O'Conchobhair, i.e. Domhnall, the son of Tadhg, son

Domhnall), and tho sons of Eoghan Mac Diarmada, and 
Mac Donnchadha of the Corann, with O'Conchobhair ; 
and it is not possible to calculate or over-reckon what 
was destroyed in that war. Maelruanaidh, son oí Tadhg, 
son of Eoghan Mac Diarmada, was killed with a gun shot 
by some of his own kindred,' viz., by the descendants of 
Mag Raghnaill's daughter.' Cormac Carrach, son of 
Eoghan Mac Diarmada, died in Teeh-a-muine* on Coít- 
sliabh : and this man was a great destroyer and evil-doei', 
for he killed Diarmaid-an-enigh, the son of Ruaidhri Mác 
Diarmada, in treachery, on Lis-Aedhain. Tadhg, the

which were twelve hundred cows, vel amplius, were taken 
from the posterity of Maelsechlainn Donn.' On the 
night of the festival of the Cross these depredations were 
committed, Maelruanaidh, the son of Euaidhri Mac Diar- 
mada, i.e. the most illustrious prince of his age for hospi- 
talitv, nobility, and prowess, was killed with a gun shot 
by his own kinsman, i.e. Tadhg, the son of Eoghan Mac 
Diarmada, in hoc' anno. However, no good that the per- 
son then killed could do would be excessive, as there was 
not in the province of Connacht a son of a better father 
and mother in every good quality ; for extent of muni- 
ficence, generosity, and lordship; for hospitality, clemency, 
bounty, and charity — viz., Ruaidhri, son of Tadhg, son of 
Ruairdhri Og, and Sadhbh, the daughter of Rickard 
Og, son of Ulick Ruadh, son of Ulick-an f hina. Never- 
theless, Mac Diarmada made peace soon after his son's 
death, though it giieved him that he should have been 
killed^ by his own friends and relations. A great depre- 
dation was committed this year by Brian, the son of 
Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, on the sons of Laisech Mac 
DubhgaiU. Anotlier prey luas taken by Jordan Buidhe,* 
the son of John, son of Walter, from the people of Mac

without retaliation.' O'Briain died, i.e. Donnchadh, the

Maelechlainn Donn, were killed by O'Flannagain ; i.e. 
Edmond, the son of William O'Flaimagain, that com-

The sons of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, viz., Cormac and

with an immense anny ; and they brought large preys 
with them, and burned the country entirely. And they 
came to Fuaran-Maighe-hOi, where they encamped that 
night. His mortal illness seized Cormac, the son of 
Ruaidliri Mac Diarmada, that night, and he died in the 
course of a week afterwards: and this son of Mac 
Diarmada was of the celebrities of Connacht as regards 
nobility and daring, bounty and prowess. Cathal Og, 
the son of Eoghan Mac Diarmada, died ; and that was a 
great calamity. A war broke out between the sons of 
Eoghan Mac Diarmada, and Mac Diarmada with his sons. 
The monaster}'^ of the Buill was taken by Brian, the son of 
Mac Diarmada, against the sons of Eoghan ; and the abbot 
of tho Buill was captured there, i.e. Tomaltach, the son of

and Mac Diarmada, i.e. Ruaidhri, and Tomaltach Mac [1566.] 
Diarmada, and Brian, son of Mac Diarmada, went with a 
great army upon the Pobal-caech,* an^jl all the depreda- 
tions and burnings they comraittcd, and the spoils they 
brought with them, cannot be reckoned. The same 
assemblage went against 0*Ruairc, i.e. Brian the son of 
Eoghan O'Ruairc, and brought great preys from Mul- 
hich-thuir, and from Glenn-buidhe ; and they entirely 
burned the Breifne. Diarmaid O'Maelenaigh died in hoc^ 
anno. An encampment was made [by] Domhnail, the 
son of Tadlig, son of Cathal Og,^ against the Grainsech ; 
and he brought James,* the son of John, son of Ruaidhri, 
and his son, out of the place ; and he brought the hostages

invited and procured their advance;*' and the person 
who was then slain was a great loss, for there was hardly 
a man of his age who gave and presented more to

Lord one thousund, íivc hundrcd, and sixty-one ^eaiu 
Tadhg, son of Cairbre O'Birn, i.e. tli'e O'Birn, died in Echa-

more celebrated than he for staturc and beautv, form 
and stateliness, foi- wisdom and learning, for hospitality 
and dignity, and in eveiy othcrquality incident to a good 
man : a blessing be with his soul. Maclsechlainn, son of 
Tuathal O'Domhnallain, died : i.e. the ollamh of the greatcr 
part of Connacht in poetry, and a man who always 
kept a guest-house. Felim Buidhc, thc son of Cairbre,

from them ; and there was not in Erinn a camp in which 
horses and armour, meat and wine, musicians, minstrels, 
and men of science, gallowglasses, mercenaries, and Alba-

Toirdhelbhach Caech/ son of Toirdhelbhach Og, and A.D. 
Dubhgall, son of Edmond Mac Suibhne, et alii multi, were [1561".] 
slain in that defeat. 

The kalenJs of January on Saturday ;^ the age of the [1562.] 
Lord one thousand, íive hundred, and sixty-two years. 
Thc sons of Eoghan, son of Tadhg Mac Diarmada, retained 
a large band against Mac Diarmada, i.e. Ruaidhri, with- 
out his own knowledge; for they brought the sons of 
Alexander Gallda Mac Domhnaill,' and Brian Og, son of 
Brian-an-chobhlaigh* Mac Suibhne ; and there were three 
hundred Albanachs and gallowglasses. They brought 
this band against Mac Diarmada, and burned and piUaged 
all that belonged to Mac Diarmada's confidants'* of the 
country ; and they burned the fortress® entirely, and Baile- 
na-huamha, and on every side of it, And Murchadh, the 
son of Brian Caech, i.e. a good horseman of Mac Diar- 
raada's people, was killed by them in theClochar ; and it is 
not possible to reckon or tell all the steeds, cows, horses, 
and property of every other kind they destroyed. This 
band was a week and a day going through the country, 
destroying it, and Mac Diarmada residing on the Rock^ 
during that time. As soon as Mac Diarmada, i.e. Ruaidhri, 
perceived that they were wasting the country, he invited 
Domhnall, the son of Murchadh Mac Suibhne, and the de- 
scendants of Edmond Mac Suibhne ; and he took with him 
across Corr-sliabh,northwards, three or four hundred coats 
of mail, with their coraplement of raercenaries. This was 
the hour and time when the sons of Eoghan Mac Diar- 
mada, wibh their band, were returning from the upper end 
of the country, after destroying much in it ; and they 
made a short 8tay in Baile-mic-Murchadha f but news 
reached them, and they went into array. A pai-t of the

tlie age of the Lord one thousand, five hundred, and sixty- 
four years. A war arose between O'Conchobhair Ruadh 
and Mac Diarmada, i.e. Ruaidhri. Ros-Comain was taken 
by the sons of Tadhg Og, son of Tadhg, son of Toirdhel- 
})hach O'Conchobhair, from O'Conchobhair I)onn; and 
they gave the town, after taking it, to O'Conchobhair 
Rnadh, i.e. Tadhg Og, son of Tadhg Buidhe ; and mucli 
was destroyed throughout all Connacht on account of this 
capturo, Biian, son of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, and the 
sous of Tomaltach Mac Diarmada, with many nien, went 
into ambush around Ros-Coraain. Cohchobhar, the son 
of O'Conchobhair Ruadh, went out from the court' that 
day, and the ambuscaders attacked himselí" and hls 
peoplc on all sides ; and they were driven to the monas- 
tery, and their horses were taken from them before 
the door; and they themselves went into the belfry. 
But this place was no defence to them. All foUowed 
tliem, and God decreed the teraiination of their lives; 
for, though strong the place in wliich they were, their 
lieads were taken oíf them all. Conchobhar, son of 
Toirdhelbhach Ruadh O'Conchobhair, was killed there, 
and eleven of his people along with him ; and ten 
horses were taken from them. On the Saturday of 
Pat.rick's Sunday'' these deeds were committed. Brian, 
the son of MacDiarmada, went on the Monday after against 
Mac Donnchadha of the Corann, to Bun-an-fedhain ; 
and the place was burned to the door by him ; and he 
brought two hundred cows out of it, and committed 
homicides there.^ O'NeiU, i.e. John, son of Conn, came 
with a countless host to Finfe-Gall ; and the Foreignei-s 
mustered against liim ; and O'Neill gave an onset to the 
Foreigners on tlie northern side of Ard-Macha-Brege ;

Loch-na-Suilidhe, over O'Neill, i.e. over John son of Conn 
O'Neill, by O'Domhnaill, i.e. Aedh, son of Maghnus, son 
of Aedh O'Domhnaili; and it is not possible to reckon, or 
tell, all that were lost and drowned there. O'Neill, ie. the 
same John, son of Conn, i.e. lord of the XJltonian province, 
and royal heir of Erinn without dispute, and the man 
who gave and presented most in Erinn, was lcilled in 
treachery by Albanachs, after lie had gone to them to 
their camp, under their own protection, accompanied by 
a few men. MacDiarmada, i.e. Ruaidhri, the son of 
Tadhg Mac Diarmada, was taken piisonér by Muinter- 
llannagain; (and some say that it was during peace' 
this act was done). Muinter-Flannagain transfeiTed him 
to O'Conchobhair Ruadh, and O'Conchobhair sent liim 
to Murchadh, son of Tadhg, son of Domhnall O'Ferghail, 
to Clann-Amhlaibh, to be detained. These acts were not 
endured by Mac Diarmada, i.e. by Brian, son of Ruaidhri 
Mac Diannada : i.e., he began to disturb and confound 
hia enemies, and boldly to.plunder his advei-saríes, on 
account of his father, so that he preyed and burned 
Muinter-Flannagain' entirely,and the Cluainte altogether; 
for he left neither a corn-field without cutting, nor a house 
without buming, on Sliabh-Bádhna, or on either side of 
it. After the destruction and pillage of these districts 
and septs, by the son of Mac Diarmada, he brought the 
son of O'Ruairc, i.e. Brian, the son of Brian, son of Eoghan 
O'Ruaiic, with him against Clann-Amhlaibh. The entire 
country was bumed and plundered by them ; and Cathal, 
the son of Tadhg, son of Domhnall O'Ferghail, was killed 
by him,'and the grandson of O'Ferghail Buidhe,and many 
more along with them. They retumed with triumph. 
In the conrse of a short time after that O'Raighilligh, i.e. 
Aedh, the son of Maelmordha O'RaighilIigh, came on 
an expedition against O'Bim, to Ui-Briuin-na-Sinna. He

pluHdered and bnmed the coimtry; and they killed a 
number of his people. Brian, the son of O'Ruairc, and 
Brian son of Mae Diarmada, overtook him in pursuit, 
and followed liini as far a;s Móin-lesc. His prc^s 
wore there taken from O'RaighiUigh ; and one hundred 
hoi'ses were taken along with them, and a large number 
of his men. Míic Diarmfida was ransomed by his own son, 
i.e, Brian,' after all that had l)een destroyed on his account 
in the same year; for he gave three huiidred cows as his 
ransom, and a íinn peace ; (and the half of this mnsom was 
of the cattle of the Cluainte alone). Treachery was com- 
mitted l>y M{i.stor Fi-amsa,* and by MacomaH,' and thc 
Saxons, on Muirchei-tach O'Mordha, and on his people; 
(and the plaee wliere this trea(;hory was committed was in 
the great rath of MuUagh-Maisten); and Muirchertach 
and 8eventy-four men were slain there; and no uglier 
deed than that was ever committed in Erinn. Maghnus,* 
the son of Cormae, son of DomhnaiU Mael O'Laimhin, i.e. 
Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada's servant, was killed by the de- 
scendants of Eoghan* Mac Diarmada, and the descendants 
of Cormac Mac Diarmada, in treachery, on the Molog. 
Cormac, the son of Tadhg Mac Diarmada, (i.e. the son of 
Tadhg, son of Ruaidhri), was killcd by Cathal, son of 
MíMjlruanaidh MacDiarmada. Thebridge*'of Ath-Luain, 
over the Sinainn, was constructed in thisyear b^'tho Saxon 
queen ; (and Sir Henry Sidney was Justiciary in Erínn, 
and Elizabeth was the name of this queen). O'Conchobhair 
Sligigh went to Saxon-land, i.e. Domhnall.

Gar, and near' Imaire-Maighe-hAi, and on each side of 
them. But the disease from which there is no escape, and 
which cannot be avoided, attacked him, and he died after 
communion, after mass,' and after precept, on Maunday 
Thursday,* on Carraig-Mic-Diannada ; and his body was 
nobly, honourably, interred in the abode of the saints, 
and the bed of the patrons,* i.e. in Trimty-Island, as he 
himself had ordered that he should be buried in the 
sepulchre^ of the preceding abbots, to exhibit, and mani- 
fest, hLs wisdom and knowledge,' and to renounce pride, 
and to magnify the honour of the church after him. His* 
soul afterwards joumeyed to the general Pasch without 
end or limit, in ssecula sfficulonim.' Amen. It was for 
him, therefore, the author'" composed the stanza, 

" Sixty-eight years, cei-tain to me, 
Five hundred, and a thousand years, 
From the birth of Christ, a long record, 
To the death of Ruaidhri MacDiarlnada." 

Moreover, Mac Diarmada's country was made a harp 
without a céis,'^ and a church without an abbot, after the 
death of Ruaidhri Mac Diarraada, for numerous evils"

the power which the Clann-Maelruanaidh possessed up to

of spoil, so that all Connacht' and Magh-Luirg were in- 
jured, and greatly disturbed, by this depredation, through 
the number of ploughmen,' great fanners, and servants 
that were slain. Other gi'eat depredations were com- 
mitted by MacDiarmada upon O'Ruairc' in like manner. 
Numerous injuries were committed this year in Erinn, 
and particularly in Connacht. Ros-Comain was given by 
O'Conchobhair to the Justiciary ; and Diarmaid, son of 
Cairbre, son of Eoghan Caech, was the O'Conchobhair ;

Mac Diarmada, i.e. Toirdelbhach, the son of Eoglian Mac 
Diarmada, witli his brothers,' so that the territories and 
houses, the lands and septs, in their neighbourhood were 
wasted. The sons of Eoghan Mac Diarmada retained three 
hundred^ Albanachs against the sous of Ruaidhri Mac 
Diarmada ; and the sons of Ruaidhri were driven out of 
the country, to Clann-Connmhaigh, and to the Mainechs. 
Much was destroyed in Magh-Luirg by those Albanachs, 
in church and territory. And on the last day, after those 
Albanachs had completed their period of service, Brian, 
the son of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, with his kinsmen, (viz., 
the sons of Tomaltach, son of Tadhg Mac Diarmada), came 
out of Clann-Connmhaigh to view the country ; and they 
sent skirmishing parties against their enemies, on hearing 
that the Albanachs had departed; and Diarmaid Riabhach,

O'Conchobhair [ ] a hotel for them outside the [157L] 

court. Thcy brought O'Conchobhair by stealth from the 
Foreigners. After O'Conchobhair had thus comc from the 
Foreigners, he retained 800 Albanachs, and he and the sons 
of Eoghan Mac Diamiada eombined together. They went 
on an expedition to Upper Connacht. Tliey bumed the 
Pobal-caech, and Crúthonn, and Cethroma'[ ] ; and 

they brought great preys Avith them, and returaed safely. 
The Presidcnt came upon Machaire-Connacht, with a gi-eat 
army. Baile-an-tobair, aud the [Caislen-ria]bhach, were 
taken by him ; and he broke down the Caislen-riabhach, 
and turned back afterwards. O'Conchobhair Donn, and 
his Albanachs, were in Magh-Luirg before them, levying 
tributes on eveiy [side], and on Magh-Luirg especially, for 
they had Mac Diarmada's permission thereto. Brian 
son of Ruaidhri was not, nor were his kinsmen, acting 
with O'Conchobhair about that time ; and Brian did not 
know that O'Conchobhair was acting treacherously, until 
he himself proved his treachery, i.e. until he apprehended 
Diarmaid, son of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, and Tomaltach 
Og, son of Tomaltach Mac Diarmada, after they had sided 
with O'Conchobhair's people, and until their horses and 
armour were taken from them. Tomaltach Og escaped 
in the course of some time after that. A ransom was 
exacted from Diarmaid. His stud, and some of his herds, 
were afterwards taken from Brian Mac Diarmada,by those 
Albanachs of O'Conchobhair. Brian himself was lying in 
pain during all that time. On his recovery, he took cows 
and horaes from O'Conchobhair. The son of Conchobhar, 
son of Cathair O'Conchobhair, and fóur of his people, 
were killed by Brian, moreover, in that war. An encamp- 
ment was made by [Brian] Mac Diarmada, and by the 
sons of Tomaltach Mac Diarmada, about Rath-Brenainn, 
and from tliat to Cam-srathan. They committed great 
depredations upon the abbot of the Buill, and anothcr

Floinn, inoreover, and Inis-Mic-David, were burned by [157]',] 

them in the same year. The President came to Ilos- 

Comain, and waa seven weeks residinof in it. He tumed 

back again, and left hostages. The President came to 

Connacht a^ain, with a large armament of the queen's 

people; and they went into Clann-Rickard. The Earl 

of Clanu-Rickard, and this army of Foreigners, went into 

Cuilecha, and took two or three castellated towns. 

O'DomhnaiU, i.e. Aedh, son of Maghnus O'DomhnaiU, 

came to Lower Connacht ; and the sons of Eoghan Mac 

Diarmada went to meet him to Baile-esa-dara, and they 

combined together against their enemies. O'Domhnaill 

retumed again to Ulster. A large [number] of his people 

went with Eoghan's sons, aJong with their ovni people ; 

and they attacked Brian Mac Diarmada's residence in 

Clann-Faghartaigh ; and they took from him two 

thousand cows, and more, with a proportionate number 

of horses, and returned safely. The President was this 

time in Cuilecha. Messengers went to meet him from 

Brian, to complain to him of those deeds. These reports 

were not neglected by the President, with his Foreigners, 

for he made no stay, or delay, until he came into Clann- 

Connmhaidh. Brian Mac Miarmada, and the sons of 

Tomaltach Mac Diarmada, went to meet him in Clann- 

Connmhaidh ; and he sent Brian on before him again to 

Magh-Luirg, to watch Mac Diarmada and the Albanachs, 

and he himself remained after him in Clann-Connmhaidh 

that night; and they appointed to meet each other 

on the morrow at Rath-na-cieirecb. This appoint- 

ment was observed on both sides; and Mac Diarmada 

and his sons, and Tadhg, son of Cathal Mac Diarmada, 

were in Cluain-na-cea[ ] in Uachtar-tíré. This inviiation

descendants of Tomaltach Mac Donnchadha, and by the de- 
scendants of Dubhgall Gruamach, against' Saxons. Tlie 
head (roof ?) of the monastery of the Trinity, and the erec-

same time by' Brian, the son of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada ; 
for this Brian was the superior of the monastery, and lord

Toirdhelbhach O'Briain, and Toirdhelbliach, son of Mac 
Mathghamhna, died at the close of this year ; and there 
were not in Erinn, in their own time, two youthí3 of gi-eater

the son of Niall Conallagh. The chief priest of Trinity-

sheriff of the county of Magh-eó,' i.e. Meiler, the son of 
Walter, was killed by Édraond Burk, son of Thomas-an- 
Machaire ; (and that was a great calamity ; and in Caislen- 
na-hEille' he committed that deed); O'Conchobhair 
Sligigh, i.e. Domhnall, the son of Tadhg, son of Cathal 
Og, and Mac Diaimada's son, i.e. Brian, the son of 
Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada, went to Baile-atha-cliath, to the 
great council ; and they were five weeks at that court, 
and received great honour from the council of Erinn ; 
and they returned safely. Liatruim of Muinter-Eolais' 
was taken by Saxons against Brian, the son of Brian 
O'Ruairc; and fifteen raen were killed in it; and a great 
quantity of all kinds of spoil was taken out of it. The 
son of O'Ruairc, i.e. Brian, went to meet the Justiciary ; 
and he made peace with the Foreiguers, and obtained his 
town, i.e. Liatruim. Ruaidhri Og O'Mordha* was killed 
by Brian Og MacGillapatraic, and by the Foreiguers ; and 
there was not in Erinn a greater destroyer against* 
Foreigners than that man ; and he was a very great loss. 
Bun-Drobhais was given to O'DorahnailP by theJusti- 
ciary, who exacted twelve hundred marks from him for 
it, vel aniplius ; and we would say that it was wrong to 
sell the residence of Brian Luighnech's descendants'' to 
O'Domhnaill, if fear allowed us to say it. The great, 
regal, house of the Rock was begun by Brian, the son 
of Ruaidhri Mac Diarmada ; and he had this work, and 
the head (roof ?) of the monastery of the Triuity, and 
the bawu'^ of Dun-gar, in progress together ; and he had

mortua est ; and she was buried in Ciil-Conaill. The son 
of Maurice Dubh, son of the Earl of Des-Mumha, came to 
Erinn in this year, and a few Spaniards along with him. 
They occupied Dun-in-6ir in Mumha; and when the 
Ju8ticiary of Erinn heard this he assembled a large army, 
viz., the Earl of Cill-dara, and Captain Malbie, i.e. the 
governor of the province of Connacht at that time, aud 
a great number of the Gaeidhel of Connacht, and the 
prpvince of Laighen, with its armament, and a great 
number of Muimhnechs. When the sons of the Earl of 
Des-Mumha, viz., John, the son of James, and Shemus- 
na-tinol,' his other brother, heard that James, the son of 
Maurice Dubh, had come to Erinn, aooompanied by the 
Spaiiiards, they raised an insurrection of war against the 
Foreigners of Mumha; and the pi-esident of the two 
provinces of Mumlia, and eight of the principal Foreigners 
along with him, were killed in their own territory. 
James, the son of Maurice Dubh, went on an expedition 
into the country of Clann-Wiliiam. The Clann-William 
of thc Suir, i.e. the posterity of the Red Earl, overtook 
him. They foughtwith each other. The son of Maurice 
Dubh fell ihere; and three of the Clann-William fell 
with him. And he endured much hardship by sea and land 
up to that time, throughout Spain and France, making 
preparations against his enemies, and performed great 
bravery, and warlike deeds, in those foreign countries, for 
the 8ake of his own land, and of the faith. The Justiciary 
went to Mumha, with this large army which we have men- 
tioned, and it is not possible to reckon or calculate the 
towna, com-fields, and property, destroyed in Mumha on 
that occasion. The Bishop O'hElidhe, i.e. the paragon 
of leamirig and piety of the whole world, and the 
son of O'Ruairc, i.e. Connbrathar, the son of Brian, 
son of Eoghan O'Ruairc, came fi'om the east, after

ai^prehended thera; and they were both hanged, to the 
profanation of God and men. And that was a pitiful daed, 
i.e., to put an honourable, most pious bishop, and a friar 
minor of noble blood, to death in an unbecoming manner. 
But God performed a plain, manifest miracle on the 
Justiciary ; i.e. a burning attacked his head the day these 
two were hanged, and thi.s burning did not leave him until 
he died of it in the course of a short time. Tadhg,' the 
son of Conn Citach,* sOn of Aedh, son of Eoghan, died. 
Richard Eustace, and Richard Bris,' accompanied by a 
large army, went on an expedition against the sons of 
the Earl,* into their own fastnesse.s. The Earl's sons, and 
the people of Maurice Dubh's son, after his own death, 
overtook them. These two Richards were slain, and two 
hundred persons along with them, vel amplius. Richard, 
8on of Domhnall,' died ; and the existence of these three 
Richards was a great injury to the Gaeidhel of Erinn. 
The treasurer of Erinn, i.e. Edward Fitton, died in Baile- 
atba-cliath, the last day of the middle month of summer ; 
and there name not of the Saxon Foreigners, for a long 
time, one more to be lamented than he, as regarda nobility 
and dignity. Mac Donnchadha of Tir-Oilella was killed 
by Maelruanaidh, the son of Cathal, son of Eoghan Mac 
Donnchadha ; and the country was in a disturbed condi- 
tion af ter him, between the Clann-Donnchadha. O'Briain,^ 
i.e. Domhnall, son of Conchobhar O'Briain, died ; and that 
was a great calamity. Honora,daughter of Donnchadh, son 
of Conchobhar O'Briain, died. Thomas, son of the Baron 
Nugent, died. Margaret, daughter of Brian Mac Diarmada 
Ruadh, the wife of Cathal, son of Eoghan Mac Donn- 
chadha, died. The king of Poi-tugal was killed by the 
Turk" in a battle, and forty thousand men along with 
him ; and on Lammas Day this battle was given. The 
king of Persia went against the Turk,'' with a countless

fallen by hira ; and a battlo was fought between them,^ 
and twenty thousand of the Turk's people fell ; and the 
king of the Turks'* escaped 8afely from the battle, after 
his people had been slain. Don John of Austria, i.e. the 
brother of king Philip, king of Spain, the best nobleman 
that ever came into Christendom, died the fifth day of 
the first month of autumn. The heir of king Philip died 
the second month.' The defeat of Aenagii-beg was given 
to Sliemus-na-tinol, and to John son of Shemus, by Cap- 
tain Malbie, in which Eoghan, the son of Edmond Mac 
Sithigh, and seven of his kindred, of the noblest of the 
Ciann-Sithigh, were slain, and one or two score along 
with them. 

The kalends* of January on Friday ; and the age of the 
Lord was one thousand, and five hundred, and eighty. 
Mac WiUiam Burk, i.e. John,* the son of Oliver, head of 
the nobility, honour, and dignity of the province of 
Connacht, died in this year. The Bishop Burk,^ i.e. 
Roland, son of Redmond, head of the ecelesiastics of 
Connacht, died. The defeat of Glenn-Malura, iii which 
nine captains were slain, and one hundred men along with 
each eaptain, was inflicted on Saxons by the sons of 
Roland Eustace, and by Fiacha, son of Aedh, son of John, 
Bon of Redmond. Eoghan, son of Feiim Ruadh, son of 
Ait, son of Aedh O'Neill, who was called Fuath-an-airgid.^ 
died in Baiie-atha-cliath. Maelruanaidh, son of Cathal, 
sonofEoghan Mac Donnchadha, undisputed royal heir 
of Ui-nOilella, died in Cul-mhaile, after triumphing over 
the world and the devil ; and this death of the son of 
Mac Donnchadha was happy, joyful, news to his enemies, 
and the cause of great sorrow to his friends. Baile-

ant-sleibhe, son of Richard Mac Goisdelbh, died. The Earl 
of Clann-Rickard'8 son, i.e. WiUiam Burk, went to GaiUimh 
to make peace with the Foreigners, on the engagement and 
guarantees of the Mayor, and of the town besides ; and 
there was within before him a perpetrator of injury 
and destruction upon the Clann-Rickard, i.e, William Og 
Martin, and two bands of soldiers along with him. And 
after the Earl's son went in, William Martin and the 
Saxons acted treacherously towards him ; and they appre- 
hended himself ; and nine of his people were hanged, and 
he himself was put in prison, in despite of the mayor, 
and of the town. And not long after that the Earl's son, 
and Toirdhelbhach, the son of Donnchadh O'Briain, were 
hanged; and on Corpus Christi* the Earl's son was 
hanged, and O'Briain's son was hanged on the moiTow. 
After the fall of the king of Portugal in the battle we 
have before mentioned,* king Philip, i.e. the king of Spain, 
sent his own guardian, with an army, to Lisbon; and 



A.D. 



O'Brieu was hanged on the 2Cth of 
May, which day coincided with Cor-

hc and his í^axons fell, et alii raulti.' Aedh Dubh, the 
aon of Murchadh O'Flaithbhertaigh, and Justin Mac 
Bomhnaili.were apprehended,in treachery,by John, son of 
the Earl of Clann-Rickard, i.e., Richard Saxanach, as they 
were retiirning from the Holy Cross ; and he deliveréd 
theni to Captain Malbie, who was over Connacht: and 
not long did God and the Holy Cross let that go un- 
pitnished with John, Great depredations were committed 
by the sons of the Earl of Clann-Rickard, viz., Ulick and 
John, upon the descendants of XJlick Burk, and upon 
Muinter-Uiginn of the Termon. An ugly treachery was 
practised by Ulick, the son of the Earl, and by Redmond, 
son of Ulick-nar-gcenn,^ and by Redmond, the bishop's son, 
on the Eai'l's son John ; for the two Redmonds gave him 
an iuvitation ; and they took him to Bél-atha-Finntainn, 
and drew the Earl, i.e., Ulick, upon him ; and he was slain 
in fratricide; and John, the son of Aedh Mac Suibhne^ 
and John, the son of Brian Mac Gilla-Cellaigh, and 
Finghin Buidhe Mac Maeltuile, the good material of a 
physician, were ..kijled along with him. And the like of 
this fratricide was not coínmitted since Naise,* son of 
Uisnech, was killed in treachery in Emhain-Macha; and 
no Foreigner's son of his own age wíís slain who was more 
lamented than he. Captain Malbie, and all the Foreigners 
that were in Connacht, went to Clann-Rickard on the 
report of this treachery; and onthe llth day of November 
this deed was committed. The Earl of Cill-dara's steward, 
i.e., Meiler Husé, died in the beginning of this year. The 
bishopríc of Oilfinn was given to Andrew O'Ci'aidhén, by ' 
the Council of Erinn at Ath-cliath. The Earl of Des-

Sir Jolm Perrot. A governor of Connacht came with him, A.D. 
whose name was Richard Bingham. These Foreigners risgT.] 
came to Ros-Comain, on their arrival in Erinn, and Aedh, 
son of O'Conchobhair Donn, was made prisoner by them ; 
and his friends, viz., O'Conchobhair Sligigh, and Brian, 
son of Ruaidliri Mac Diarmada, and Tomaltach Og, son 
of Tomaltach Mac Diarmada, released him quickly ; and 
the way they released hira was, the three gave bonds 
for three thousand pounds to guarantee his continuing 
in peace ; and Brian son of Domhnall Mac Suibhne, 
a constable of his people, was lefb in Ros-Comain, in 
irons, as security for Aedh. These Foreigners went to 
Gaillimh, and Mac William came to meet them ; and 
hostages were exacted from Mac William, and from his 
kindred. From thence they went to Luimnech. A host-

of Connacht, to Lower Connacht, on which occasion he 
exacted hostages from O'Ruajrc, and took Baile-in-mhúta,

of Cathal Dubh Mac Donnchadha, as a hostage, after all 
that was destroyed in Corann ; and the lord over Corann 
at that time was Aedh, son of Cairbre Mac Donnchadha. 
The Justiciary, i.e., Sir John Perrot, went to Ulster, and

eighty-five years. The son of Tadhg O'Ruairc, i.e., Brian, 
and some of the Clanu-Sithigh whom he had retained, 
went on a foray against Mag [FJlannchaidh ; and they 
captured great preys, on Stcphen's festival. Mag

Dartrai came up with them after that, and attacked the 
band ; and a victory was gained over the son of Tadhg 
O'Ruairc, and over his people ; and EoghanMac Sithigh, 
son of Toirdhelbhach, son of Edmond Mac Sithigh, was 
killed, and two scorc .along with him, on that field. The son 
of Tadhg O'Ruairc, and Maghnus Og O'Curnin, were cap-

Dubhain was taken by the govemor ;* and Mathgamhain, Mggg^i 
son of the Bishop O'Briain,' and aJlthe warders, were put

that was a great loss in respect of nobility and hos- 
pitality. Cecilia, daughter of Mac David, died; aud that 
was a great calamity. Oliver, son of John, son of David 
Bán Burk, and Thomas, son of David Bán, were hanged 
by the governor. The governor went with a numcrous 
army about Caislcn-na-caillighe ; and sorae of the posterity 
of Ulick Burk, and of the po8terity of Edraond Burk, 
were in the cjistle; and the govemor advanced towards 
the place with a force of two or three boats. And they 
attacked the placo ; and forty of the govemor's people 
were slain ; and he himself was nearly lost there. And 
the warders subsequently departed; and no harm was 
done to them. O'hAirt, i.e., Felim, the son of William 
O'hAirt, died on Easter night, and was buried in Sligech 
on Monday. Ric^ai'd Og,' son of Rickard, son of Shane-

three nights before Easter : and he was a noble, humane, 
most hospitable man. The two sons of Walter Fada 
Burk, viz., Meiler and Tibbot, were hanged by the 
govemor in Ros-Comain, afler having been a year in con- 
iinement; and they were interred in the cemetery of 
Tempul-an-aighnéin between Easter and May-day. And 
those were amongst the most laraented of the Foreigners of

adha,i.e., John (or Aenghus), son of Ruaidhri Og,was killcd 
by John, the son of O'hAnluain. The governor, and the 
Earl of Clann-Rickard, and the Earl of Tuadh-Mumha, 
accompanied by large armies, established a camp in the 
Tochar, and in Baile-in-Rodba ; and thev hanged three 
children iii Ross-mor, whom they themselves had in their 
hands for a long time before that, viz., the son of the Blind 
Abbot, and the son of Meiler, son of Walter Fada, and 
the son of John Burk : and that was a pitiful deed — the 
hanging of the innocent children. And they killed 
Eoghan, the son of Domhnall-an-chogaidh O'Flaithbher- 
taigh, per dolum, and killed and hanged several of his 
people. And the army that committed those deeds 
Vrought three thousand cows with them, and entirely 
plundered Ciarraidhe. Tlie sons of James Mac DomhnaiU 
came to Erinn, with iSfbeen hundred Albanachs ; and they 
destroyed much in Uladh. And they went to Cill- 
Ronain in the ten'itory of Counacht, and were five nights 
in it ; and the governor was at Bel-an-atha-fada, a nume- 
rous host of the chieftains of Connacht, and of Saxon.s, 
beiníj with him. And the Albáriachs retreated to Cul- 
mhaine ; and some of the Clann-William came to raeet 
them ; and they advanced to Droiched-in-chillín. ' And 
when the Saxons heard that the Albanachs had gone 
past them down, they followed them ; and they en- 
countered one another at Droiched-in-chillín, and delivered 
a vigorous battle to each other there ; and five or six of 
the governor's horses were killed; and the Albanachs 
departed uninjured to Sliabh-damh, and carried a prey 
with them to Ard-na-riadh. As regards the governor, ho 
was rendered furious and fully angry at the escape of the 
Albanachs from him, and he permitted all the "rising 
out " of the Gaeidhil that he had to depart, and returaed 
southwards towards the Caisl^n-mór.' And two Saxon

companies that carne from Mumha overtook him there ; and A.D. 
he had then seven companies of the best army in the [1586/ 
■world ; and he followed them nobly, valiantly, vigorously, 
until he reached Ard-na-riadh, And when the Albanachs 
saw them approaching. they advanced from the town to 
meet and encounter the Foreigners, and discharged ve- 
hement, furious, showers from their firearms against the* 
Foreigners ; and such was the misfort\ine of the Albanachs, 
that they wounded neither man nor horse with that dis- 
charge, and that they commenced a movement of rout and 
flight towards the Muaidh, and that twenty hundred, or 
more.were killed and drowned. James Mac Domhnaili's 
twosonswerekilledthere,viz.,DomhnallGormandAlaster; 
and GiUa-espuig, son of Dubhghall, son of Donnchadh 
Cam MacAilin, was slain there ; and Edmond Kiocarach, 
son of David Bán Burk, and Cathair, son of Domhnall,'* 
son of Donnchadh Riiadh Mac Domhnaill, were slain 
there, and many more whom we cannot reckon, from 
their number. And in Ard-na-riadh this slaughter was 
given, a week before the festival of Michael. And a 
battle was fought in Flanders on that day,^ between 
king Philip and the queen of the Saxons. Philip, the 
son of Sir Henry, was slain in that battle, and several 
others. The stream of . the Sionainn turned back to 
Loch-Righ ; and it was twenty-four hours in that order, in

Maurice, the son of Muirchertach Mac Donnchaidh, 
died. The Scurlock died. Aedh, the son of Eoghan Mac

that was a great calamity. Brian Brathach,^ son of Mac
