A predatory hosting by Tairdelbach, son of Ruaidrí, into Desmumu, and he did a deed which was vexatious to God and to the whole Christian Church generally, namely the plundering of Les Mór Mo-Chutu. The Desmumu, however, at the instigation of the Lord [and] for the honour of its saints, slay Ua Flaithbertaig and Ua hEidin along with other leaders, though [this] vengeance preceded the sin. But if any objector should be found to say ‘Never has God punished a sin before it was committed,’ it shall be replied to him that it were not extraordinary, if God, to whom all time is present, should avenge a wrong done to his Church before it was committed.

And the Síl Briain did not accomplish very much from that expedition, apart from Donnchad, son of Brian, being made king through the influence of the foreigners and Thomas de Clare. However, because of Donnchad's natural claim on Tuadmumu and from the fact that his father held it, much disaffection arose, and they (Donnchad and Tairdelbach) were on the brink of immediate strife and were about to do much harm to each other. But Domnall Mac Carthaig, king of Desmumu and counsellor of Ireland, came and sent a messenger and letters to them, pointing-out that they were [only] wasting Ireland and their [own] patrimony, and they all undertook to follow his advice. And it was then the king came northwards over the Sinann to Tuadmumu, where he remained three weeks almost, so that the length of his stay grieved all Desmumu. He did not return from them, however, until he brought about peace, and divided Tuadmumu between

them. And he came back to his own land in triumph and with good wishes. We give thanks to Our Lord for his safe return!

And to many of those whom he plundered he gave, though he was not bound to, some of his cattle . and livestock. And the same Domnall Óc,

son of Domnall Cairprech, and all the people of the Uí Chairpri accompanying him, departed(?).

Muirchertach Ó Conchobuir Fhailgi and In Calbach his brother, were slain by Sir Piers Bermingham, after he had deceitfully and shamefully invited them and acted as god-father to [the child of] the latter and as co-sponsor with the other. Masir, the little child who was a son of the latter, and whom Piers himself had sponsored at confirmation, was thrown over [the battlements of] the castle, and it was thus it died. And twenty-three or twenty-four of the followers of those men mentioned above, were slain, for In Gaillsech Shacsanach (she was the wife of the same Piers) used to give warning from the top of the castle of any who went into hiding, so that many were slain as a result of those warnings. And woe to the Gaedel who puts trust in a king's peace or in foreigners after that! For, although they had [the assurance of] their king's peace, their heads were brought to Áth Cliath, and much wealth was obtained for them from the foreigners. And when Piers was reproached with that, he said that he was not aware that there was a foreigner in Ireland who

had not undertaken to slay his Gaelic neighbour, and he knew that they would slay, as he had slain; and that it was no wonder the foreigners harboured that evil resolution concerning them, for they (the Gaedil) had avenged themselves thoroughly before they were slain.

Edward, king of England, died on the nones [7th] of July on a hosting against the Scots in the confines of Scotland and England,—a knight most prudent, most violent, and most valiant. It was by him the greatest number of people fell in his time,—although he did much evil to the church and to the laity—for by him fell Llywelyn, king of Wales, and his brother David. And by him the Welsh were subdued, and are in servitude since, having no king of their own. By him also great oppression was inflicted on the Scots, after he had banished their king, for according to report, he slew fifty thousand of them in one day, and also a countless number on all sides on another occasion.

And it was Ó Cathail of Uí Fhlaithríg who beheaded Mac Con Mara, although it was the Clann Mathgamna, and Ó Gráda and certain others, according to report, who laid hands, upon him. And the said Domnall Ó Gráda was slain on the same day.

Great warfare in the same year between de Clare and Ó Briain and the Tuadmumu: Sir Richard de Clare and Diarmait, son of Donnchad Ó Briain, on the one side, were opposed by Donnchad Ó Briain and the Tuadmumu, along with William de Burgo and many of the Connachta and of the foreigners of Mide. The latter came to Bun Raite on Ascension Thursday [May 20]. about a week or a fortnight after Mac Con Mara had been slain, and gave battle in ring formation to Sir Richard de Clare and to Sir Maurice Ricebard along with a few of the foreigners of Desmumu and a few of the Gaedil. And although more of these last were slain, they were victorious, and Sir William de Burgo and about twelve or thirteen nobles of those northern foreigners were taken prisoner by them. And Sir John

Murchad, son of Mathgamain, son of Domnall Connachtach Ó Briain, committed treachery against Donnchad son of Tairdelbach Ó Briain, king of Tuadmumu, and that crime was a great calamity, for he was a prominent person with a large retinue, destructive [to enemies], and of goodly worth. Although de Clare and Diarmait were in Tuadmumu at that time on a hosting, the murder was not committed by either of them, for according to report, they had no great hand in it, as it was committed because of an old enmity. And the Tuadmumu immediately gave pledges and hostages to Diarmait and to de Clare, and Diarmait was made full king by the foreigners and the Gaedil.

Muirchertach, son of Tairdelbach, Mathgamain Ó Lochlainn, Aed Ó Conchobuir, and Lochlainn Riabach Ó Dedaid left Tuadmumu and went to Connachta, and from there were committing injuries against Tuadmumu. And the same William was released by de Clare on certain conditions, having given his word as a knight with other guarantees for the fulfilment thereof in the matter of his return to his former captivity. He did not, however, fulfil the conditions or keep his word as a knight, but came into Tuadmumu with a more numerous army, including many mercenary soldiers, to make war on de Clare and on Diarmait, and to obtain the kingship for Muirchertach. And they drove Diarmait eastwards over the Forgus, and he (William) took the hostages of Tuadmumu for Muirchertach, bringing them with him into Connachta, and he left Muirchertach in Cluain Rámfhata.

[...] one whom he himself had as a soldier, whom he trusted most, and on whom he, of all in the Province at that time, conferred the highest favours. And he [Seoán] brought him by guile from his land to the foreigners, in order that he might be taken prisoner in their house. But the foreigners did not consent to that treachery, for they loathed it. That same Seoán was afterwards despoiled by Domnall Caech Mac Carthaig, and Domnall told the company that he carried out the raid with the connivance of Diarmait. And Diarmait brought Seoán by similar guile from the foreigners houses to the stronghold of Donnchad Mac Carthaigh to seek his consent and that of his son for the imprisonment of Seoán. And he obtained their consent, which was not surprising, for Seoán had previously abandoned Donnchad and his son for Diarmait when Diarmait was contending with them for the kingship for himself, although Seoán's relationship was nearer to them than to Diarmait. They did not consent, however, to Seoán's being taken prisoner by them or in their stronghold, and Diarmait brought him (Seoán) along to the house where he had spent the night, and there took him prisoner together with three of his followers. Diarmait set his people to attack Seoán's stronghold and to raid it again, and they did so in this wise. They carried off in equal numbers dogs and goats, hounds and sheep, beeves and pigs, cauldrons and helmets, vessels of measure and methers, ladles and breastplates, calves and kneading troughs, platters and butter containers, swords and sieves. Nevertheless, that is the most foreign-like, the most disgusting, the most outlandish and the most surprising, the most wretched, the most monstrous and the most cruel, the most exotic and most senseless thing that was done at that time or ever before in this Desmumu. Nor is it remarkable that such an unaccustomed happening should occur while such a young man was reigning, for a wise man says: Alas for a land whose king is a young man or a boy, and whose chiefs feast in the morning!

There arose at this time in the Order of the Friars Minor a dangerous sect, the members of which were called Sarabaites. They wished to deviate from the common rule of the Order, and desired (they claimed) to sweat under the rigours of a sterner life. Under the guise of religious scruple and false piety they spread the poison of their devilish ingenuity and dishonestly placed themselves, their sect, and their erroneous doctrine under the immediate protection of the Holy See and of certain members of the [Papal] Curia who supported them. On this account the Community of the Order appealed, not unadvisedly, from the aforesaid supporters and the unjust auditors (who had been appointed from among them) to the Pope and the said Council, requesting nonetheless that in the meantime the pernicious doctrine of the others, that enunciated by Friar Peter John, be wholly checked lest from the deadly draught the Lord's flock contract the disease of the erroneous leprosy.

The Scots invaded Ireland at the beginning of summer and straightway occupied much of Ulster, destroyed the town of Dún Delcan where they killed many people, and burned other surrounding towns such as Áth Fir Diad and Lugmud. Excepting homicide, however, deeds no less evil were done by an army drawn from different parts of Ireland to do battle with them, in the districts through which the units passed. When these came to the meeting-place at the fixed time which had been arranged, the Scots had retreated secretly beforehand through Ard Macha to Es Craibe on the [river] Banna. When it became necessary for the entire army of Ireland to pursue them to Carlingford and further [north], Lord Richard, earl of Ulster, both because he feared the ruin of his lands and because he believed any addition [to his own troops] to be superfluous, stated: ‘I have here,’ said he, ‘a force of my own of 36,000 or more, and it is large enough to expel an equal number from the country, or to kill them in it. And since they have invaded my territory, I deem it preferable to proceed against them at my own expense, and to employ my own force to that effect.’

This he did, for he pursued the Scots to Cúil Rathain on the [river] Banna. The latter became alarmed on his approach and burned the whole town save only the monastery of the Friars Preachers, and moreover, they destroyed the bridge so as to deprive him of a suitable passage as he was about to cross over. For those waters could not be forded save at two points, and only when there was excessive drought, which nevertheless did not occur in the above year. The Earl, thus remained on the opposite bank without interference from the enemy, awaiting a fall in the level of the water or a shortage of food among his foes. One of these [expectations] came to pass, for it was reported that in the Scotch camp four quarters of a sheep fetched two shillings sterling. On account of this dearth, however, the people of the countryside, principally Ó Néill,


p.421

Ó Catháin, andÓ Flainn, did not fail to provide for them as best they could. When the Earl saw this, he retreated to Antrim, desiring to procure plentiful supplies for his army. When he was there, about three thousand troops or more secretly withdrew from him without permission, the captain of the latter being Walter, son Lord Walter 'Catus' de Burgo. But, praise God, these were deprived of their horses, arms, and other effects on the road by the Irish of Uí Maine!

With a view to heartening his men the Earl eventually turned back to Coinnere to oppose the Scots; and there they and their Irish supporters suddenly charged him and his forces about midday before they were armed or prepared for battle, and they wounded and took prisoner William de Burgo along with many other nobles, whom they transported to Scotland. The Earl himself and his men took flight, since none would stand by him. And those who succeeded in crossing by Tráig in Ibuir were able to relate what disasters they had suffered there.

In the same year Donnchad is expelled from the kingship of Tuadmumu: the descendants of Tairdelbach entered Tuadmumu after the departure of Brian's sons (that is, when they had invaded Ciarraige), and they subjugated it while the latter were absent, the chief authors of the betrayal being chiefly Clann Chuiléin, and others.

There was committed the most wretched, the most downright, the most foreignlike, the most hateful deed ever committed in Ireland until then: Diarmait, son of Conchobar Ó Conchobuir, who had been held prisoner in irons for the previous eight years by the earl of Desmumu, i.e. by James, son of Garret, was maimed and injured (i.e. blinded and emasculated) by Maurice, son of the above James, accompanied by some of the Uí Chonchobuir. And neither the earl, nor his son Thomas, had act or part in that loathsome deed, for as compensation he (the earl) afterwards despoiled those who perpetrated it.
