Annal 1505


1505 First of January, the age of the Lord one thousand five hundred and five years.



Aed Ruad son of Niall Garb O Domnaill, the Gael, who achieved most power and might of all the posterity of Niall Noigiallach, full moon of the nobility and bounty of the North, the man to whom Fermanagh and Cenel Moain and Lower Connacht had submitted, died this year. And we do not think it too much to say that there was in his time no Gall or Gael who had more power in Leth Chuinn than he. Three weeks before Lammas he died, with Unction and Penance, in Donegal, having been for forty-four years king of Tir Conaill, and his son was made king in his stead, that is Aed son of Aed Ruad.


Finnghuala, daughter of Ruaidri Oc son of Ruaidri Caech and wife of Sean son of Tadc son of Brian Mac Donnchada, died this year.

Cairbre son of Brian O hUiginn died of a stroke.
