Annals of Inisfallen (Author: unknown)

Annal AI1390


Domnall Óg Mac Carthaig, i.e. his (Cormac's) son, reigned thirty-one years. There was none of his contemporaries, neither foreigner nor Gaedel, more comely, more humane, or more powerful than he, nor was there in his time one of greater
generosity, prowess, kindliness, or truthfulness. He died in the castle of Loch Léin, and was buried in the same monastery [in Corcach] after a victory of penance and devotion. And no other calamity was so notable at that time.

Annal AI1428


Tadc Mac Carthaig, i.e. son of the above Domnall, reigned thirty-eight years, and of the foreigners and the Gaedil of his time he was the best, the greatest, the [...], and the most reputed(?) for wine-drinking. Nevertheless, he was a son worthy of his father. He died in the castle of Baile Uí Chairpri and was buried in the same monastery, A.D. MCCCCXXVIII. His wife was Sebán, daughter of Garret the earl. She died in Caislén Mac nAeducáin and was buried at Tráig Lí.

The Kalends of January on Friday, [and] the twenty-first of the moon thereon.


Eógan, son of Domnall Óg Mac Carthaig, was slain on the third day after Christmas in Cluain Eócháin by some of the Clann Tomais, i.e. by Dáibíd Dub, grandson of Seoán, with his followers and kinsmen; and there was also slain there the son of Donnchad, grandson of Fíngen son of Diarmait son of Domnall Óg Mac Carthaig, i.e. Tathag, and many others were burned along with them on that day, A.D. MCCCCL (1450).



In this same year died(?) Fíngen Ó Súilliubáin, erenagh of Achad Dá Eó, and friar Robert Bul, a saintly monk, devout, learned, humane, pleasant, noble, [...] i.e. [in] the monastery of Cell Aithe through the great hardship in which (he) was in the above year.


The Kalends of January on Friday, [and] the twenty-first of the moon thereon. A.D. MCCCCL.


There was committed the most wretched, the most downright, the most foreignlike, the most hateful deed ever committed in Ireland until then: Diarmait, son of Conchobar Ó Conchobuir, who had been held prisoner in irons for the previous eight years by the earl of Desmumu, i.e. by James, son of Garret, was maimed and injured (i.e. blinded and emasculated) by Maurice, son of the above James, accompanied by some of the Uí Chonchobuir. And neither the earl, nor his son Thomas, had act or part in that loathsome deed, for as compensation he (the earl) afterwards despoiled those who perpetrated it.
