Aedh mac Ainmhireach

Irish - A high-king of Ireland. Son of Ainmire. Father of Cumascach. When his son was killed by the Leinstermen for sleeping with the wife of their king, Brandubh, he attacked the province with a large army. He had a cowl that kept him safe in battle, but he lost it and was killed when he fought with Brandubh in an attempt to collect the annual tribute, the borhama. In some stories he was killed by Brandubh, in others by Ron Cerr, one of Brandubh's men. In some accounts, the battle was lost as a result of the prayers of St Maodhog.
