Oilill Molt fell in the battle of Ocha by Muircertach Mac Erca (i.e. King of Erinn); and by Lughaidh, son of Laeghaire; and by Fergus Cirrbel, son of Conall Crimthainn; and by Fiachra Lonn, son of Caelboth, King of Dál Aráidhe, of which Bec Mac De said:—

    1. The great battle of Ocha was fought,
      Through which many fights were contested;
      Over Oilill Molt, son of Dathi,
      It was gained by the Dál Aráidhe,
      By Lughaidh, by Fiachra Lonn,
      And by the great, puissant Muircertach,
      By Fergus, son of mild Conall—
      By them fell the noble King Ailill;
      And by Fergus of the blemish—
      By them fell the noble Ailill Molt.
From the time of Conchobhar Mac Nessa to Cormac Mac Art there are 307 years; from Cormac to this battle, 207.
