Domhnall mac Aodha

Irish - A high-king of Ireland. Son of Aedh mac Ainmhireac. Brother of Maol Cobha. Foster father of Congall Caoch. He quarrelled with his foster-son, Congall, the king of Ulster, who had earlier killed the high-king Suibhne Meann so that Domhnall could take the throne. Congall fled to Scotland but later returned with an army raised by Domhnall Breac, king of Dalriada. The armies met at the Battle of Magh Ratha where Congall was defeated and killed. At times, known as Domhnall mac Aodha, Domnal, Domnal, Domhnall or Domhnall Breac.
