p.261son of Uatach, King of Connaught, was killed by Maelbrighde, son of Mothlachan, on Sunday precisely, of which was said:
- Raghallach, son of Uatach,
was pierced on the back of a white steed;
Muireann hath well lamented him,
Cathal hath well avenged him.
- Cathal is this day in battle,
though he is bound to peace in the presence of kings;
Though Cathal is without a father,
his father is not without being revenged.
- Estimate his terrible revenge
from the account of it related;
He slew six men and fifty,
he committed sixteen devastations.
- I had my share like another,
in the revenge of Raghallach,
I have the grey beard in my hand of
Maelbrighde, son of Mothlachan.

After the king's return, he granted Tuaim nEirc (i.e. Liath Manchain), with its sub divisions of land, as altarsod,
