Year U1114


Kalends of January fifth feria, twenty-first of the moon. AD 1114.


Flann grandson of Flannchad, successor of Mo-Laissi of Daiminis, Mael Coluim ua Cormacán, successor of Énna of Ára, Diarmait ua Flainnchua, successor of Ailbe of Imlech Ibair, a noble bishop and lector, a bestower of goods and food, of honour and alms, Ferdomnach ua Clucáin, coarb of Cenannas, rested in peace.



A fit of severe sickness seized Muirchertach ua Briain, king of Ireland, and rendered him paralysed and parted him from his kingship. Diarmait, however, took the kingship of Mumu in his presence without asking permission.


An army was brought by Domnall ua Lochlainn to Rath Cennaigh, and Eochaid ua Mathgamna with the Ulaid came into his house, and Donnchad ua Loingsigh with the Dál Araide and Aed ua Ruairc with the men of Bréifne and Murchad ua Mael Sechlainn with the men of Mide. They went thereafter together over Áth Luain to Dún Leodha, and Tairdelbach ua Conchobuir with the Connachta, and Niall ua Lochlainn, his own son, with the Cenél Conaill, joined his assembly. They all went thereafter to Telach ua nDedaigh in Dál Cais, and they and the men of Mumu made a year's truce. Domnall ua Lochlainn returned home through Connacht.


Aed son of Donnchad ua Eochada, heir designate of Ulaid, Donnchad ua Loingsigh, king of Dál Araide, Ua Canannán, i.e. Ruaidrí, heir designate of Cenél Conaill, Muirchertach ua Lochlainn, heir designate of Ailech, were unjustly killed.
