Aed Muimnech son of Fedlim mac Cathail Chrobdeirg came out of Munster and sought protection of O Domnaill. O Domnaill raised an army in his cause and they both came as far as Aghanagh; but here O Donmaill turned back and the son of Fedlim came himself into Connacht and remained there. After this the sons of Toirrdelbach came into the land and committed many burnings, but they could obtain no further power in the land.
