section 22

No. 7—Page 147

The date of this document may probably be fixed by the close of the eleventh century, if Maelbrigit O Cenan be mentioned in it, which


is certainly doubtful, for the word is almost illegible, and the letters máelbrig
nan are all that can with certainty be read. He was killed, according to the Annals of the Four Masters, in 1117. The son of Imar, with whom Scully O'Lavery, one of the sureties, was contemporary, was probably Sitric, son of Imar or Ifars, third King of the Danes of Dublin, who flourished about the year 1050.
