O'Grada took all The bountiful Cinel Dunghaile , His yellow-hilted polished swords, Weapons that slaughter meetings. Royal dynast of fine incursions Is Mac Conmara of Magh-Adhair , The territories of wealth are his country; Is over the Cantred of Ui-gCaisin . This is after The wood of Ui-Ronghaile of cleared land, O'Seanchain of the bright eyes possessed The land about all Eibhlinn , Like the fine smooth plain of Maonmagh . O'Cinneidigh , who reddens the javelin, Over the wide smooth Gleann-Omra , The race of our Donnchuan who, through valour, Obtained the lands without dispute. 14 th Century Topographical Poem O’Dubhagain & hUidrin
