666 Eochaid Iarlathe, king of Dál Araide, was killed by the foster-brothers of Máel Fathardaig son of Rónán. For the daughter of Eochaid Iarlathe was wife of Rónán, king of the Laigin. The girl was young, and Rónán was old, so she fell in love with Rónán's son, Máel Fathardaig, and she was always soliciting him, but she did not get his consent; and since she did not get it, this is what she did: she broke her head-ornament, and scratched her face, and bloodied her face, and came to Rónán like that. What is that, girl? asked Rónán. Your carefree son, Máel Fathardaig, she said, has violated me, and forced me, and lain with me.
Consequently he was killed by Rónán. Afterwards Máel Fathardaig's foster-brothers went to the place where Eochaid Iarlathe was, and they called him outside away from everyone, and they killed him because of what his daughter had done. Thus Flaittir sang:
- Today Eochaid son of Fiacha Lurgan
has lain down
in the clay of Cell Condere;
- Eochaid has taken a single shirt
instead of a long, warm robe;
the sorrow that is upon Dún Náis
is upon Dún Sobairche.
