Sobhairce obtained the northern part, and built a dun on his own division, namely, Dun Sobhairce. Cearmna obtained the southern division, and built a dun beside the southern sea, namely, Dun Cearmna; and it is now called Dun Mic Padraig in the Courcys’ country.

The History of Ireland (Geoffrey Keating), Volume 3

pp. 91-93 Colum went to the party of Domhnall, son of Aodh, and Domhnall went to meet him and bade him welcome, and kissed his cheek and seated him in his own place. Colum gave his blessing to Domhnall, son of Aodh, and prayed God that he might attain the sovereignty of Ireland; and it happened ultimately that he held the sovereignty of Ireland for thirteen years before he died.

p. 119 Suibhne Meann, son of Fiachna, son of Fearadhach, son of Muircheartach, son of Muireadhach, son of Eoghan, son of Niall Naoighiallach, held the sovereignty of Ireland thirteen years. … Suibhne Meann, king of Ireland, was slain by Conghal Claon, son of Scannlan Sciathleathan. … Domhnall, son of Aodh, son of Ainmire, son of Seadna, son of Fearghus Ceannfhoda, son of Conall Gulban, son of Niall Naoighiallach, of the race of Eireamhon, held the sovereignty of Ireland thirteen years. And it was this Domhnall who won the Battle of Dun Ceitheirn against Conghal Claon, in which he overthrew him and slew many of his people.

p. 125 It was Domhnall, son of Aodh, son of Ainmire, king of Ireland, who fought the Battle of Magh Rath, where Conghal Claon, who had been ten years king of Ulster, was slain. And from the tract called the Battle of Magh Rath it may be readily seen that the array and order of the Irish troops as they went into conflict or engaged in battle were well regulated. For there was a leader of the entire host, and a leader of each division of the host under his charge, and an emblem on the standard of each leader, from which the divisions of the army were distinguished from one another by the seanchas, who were bound to be with the nobles whenever they engaged with one another in conflict or battle, so that the seanchas might be eyewitnesses of the exploits of the nobles, and thus be able to give a true account of their deeds on either side. And hence Domhnall, son of Aodh, king of Ireland, had his own seancha with him when he was about to engage in the Battle of Magh Rath. For when Domhnall was marching against Conghal, king of Ulster, and they were on either side of the river, and when they were in sight of each others host Domhnall asked his seancha to name every one of the standards separately, and its emblem, and the seancha told him what they were, as we read in the poem which begins: ‘Mightily advance the battalions of Conghal’, in which is this stanza on the king of Ulster’s own emblem:

A yellow lion upon green satin,
The emblem of the Craobh Ruadh,
Such as was held by noble Conchubhar
Conghal now holds.

Ancient Laws of Ireland (O’Donovan / O’Curry), Volume III
Lebar Aicle (Book of Aicill): The battle of Magh Rath

p. 89 (271) Three were the reasons of that battle (i.e. the battle of Magh Rath) being celebrated: the defeat of Congal Claen in his falsehood by Domhnall in his truth, and Suibhne Gelt having become mad, and part of his brain having been taken from Cennfaeladh’s head. And Suibhne Gelt having become mad is not a reason why it (the battle) is celebrated, but it is because of the number of stories and poems he left after him in Erin.

Bech Bretha (Bee-Judgments): Conall Caech

p. 179 (415) If it be an eye that has been blinded, it is then required that lots be cast upon all the hives, and on whichever of the hives it (the lot) falls, it shall pay the fine. For this was the first judgment past first concerning the crime of a bee in respect of Conall Caech, whom a bee had blinded. The king of Temhair came and removed him from his kingship. He charged the man who owned the bees with the injury.

Life of St. Columba (Reeves)

Book 1, Chapter 8 Domnall, son of Aid, while yet a boy, was brought by those who brought him up to St. Columba on the ridge of Ceatt (Druim Ceatt in Londonderry), who looked at him and inquired, ‘Whose son is this whom you have brought here?’ They answered, ‘This is Domnall, son of Aid, who is brought to thee for this purpose, that he may return enriched by thy blessing.’ The saint blessed him immediately and said. ‘He shall survive all his brethren, and be a very famous king, nor shall he be ever delivered into the hands of his enemies; but in his old age, in his own house, and with a crowd of his familiar friends around him, he shall die peacefully in his bed.’ All this was truly fulfilled in him, as the blessed man had foretold.

Book 3, Chapter 5 St. Columba commenced his predictions regarding Aidan and his children and kingdom in the following manner: ‘Believe me, unhesitatingly, O Aidan,’ said he, ‘none of thine enemies shall be able to resist thee, unless thou first act unjustly towards me and my successors. Wherefore direct thou thy children to commend to their children, their grandchildren, and their posterity, not to let the sceptre pass out of their hands through evil counsels. For at whatever time they turn against me or my relatives who are in Hibernia, the scourge which I suffered on thy account from the angel shall bring great disgrace upon them by the hand of God, and the hearts of men shall be turned away from them, and their foes shall be greatly strengthened against them.’ Now this prophecy hath been fulfilled in our own times in the battle of Roth (Magh Rath), in which Domnall Brecc, the grandson of Aidan, ravaged without the slightest provocation the territory of Domnall, the grandson of Ainmuire. And from that day to this, they have been trodden down by strangers – a fate which pierces the heart with sighs and grief.
