*60.Laoghaire Lorc - 77.Breasal Breac.
593 BC. *60.Leary / Laoghaire Lorc began his reign as the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian 68th King of Tara / Erinn and became the direct male line ancestor of the 2 most important Septs in Southern Leinster, the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb Septs / Family branches, Chiefs and Kings who had their territory eventually throughout Southern Leinster, and the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Connla Kings of Ossory who also had their territory in the south - west of Southern Leinster. *60.Leary Lorc was one of 2 sons, who left aristocratic warrior issue, of *59.Ugaine Mor / *59.Hugoney - the Great the previous Gaelic Milesian Heremonian 66th King of Tara / Erinn. He in turn is also the direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Ui Felim Dal Cuinn, and the Heremonian Ui Conaire Muscraige 3 Cairbre Septs, that was also to include the Dal Riada - riata Septs in Co. Antrim in the north - east of the Ulster Province, and later on in the Scottish Highlands in Argyle (The Land of the Gael.). *60.Leary Lorc ruled Erinn until he was feloniously killed in a finghal - kin slaying by his own brother, *60.Coffey / Cobthach Caol Breagh - the Slender of Breagh who was then the King of Leinster at that time who desperately wanted the overall Kingship of Tara / Ireland for himself, After the demise of *60.Leary Lorc he became the 69th King of Tara / Erinn and the more direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Ui Felim Septs, including the Ui Felim Dal Cuinn Septs, the Ui Felim Muscraige 3 Cairbre Septs and the Ui Felim Deisi and Ui Felim Fotharta Septs. *60.Leary / Laoghaire Lorc's aristocratic warrior son who was to carry his male line forward was;
61.Ailill / Oilioll Aine, who was also poisoned by his uncle, *60.Coffey / Cobthach - the Slender of Breagh to ensure his continuing hold over the Kingship of Tara / Erinn, and his son who would carry the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire male line forward was;
542 - 523 BC. *62.Labraid Loingseach - the Mariner who was to survive the onslaught of his great - uncle only because he had been struck dumb after eating a mouse and was therefore physically afflicted, which under the Irish Brehon Law would keep him from being eligible for any of the Kingships, but despite this he was to eventually regain his speech during a mishap in a hurling match when he cried out, and was eventually exiled by *60.Coffey Caol Breagh and over a great period of time he would return and avenge his father and his grandfather at Dinn Righ (The Fort of the King) in Southern Leinster were his uncle, *60.Coffey / Cobthach Caol Breagh and his supporters would eventually meet their end. *62.Labraidh Loingseach then became the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Laoghaire 70th King of Tara / Erinn. His son who then carried their Heremonian Ui Laoghaire male line forward was;
63.Ailill / Oilill Bracan who was to be the father of;
499 - 481 BC. *64.Angus / Aeneas Ollamh who regained the Kingship for the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Sept and became the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian 73rd King of Tara / Erinn and ruled for 18 years until he too was killed by 62.Iaran Gleofathach who was a grandson of *60.Coffey / Cobthach Caol Breagh. *64.Aeneas Ollamh's son who carried their male line forward was then;
65.Breasal Breoghamhain who was to be the father of;
384 BC. *66.Fergus / Fearghus Fortamhail - the Brave and Strong who became the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Laoghaire 80th King of Tara / Erinn who ruled for 12 years until he was killed in battle by Angus / Oengus Tuirmeach descended from *37.Heber Fionn. His son who then carried their Heremonian Ui Laoghaire male line forward was;
67.Felim Foirtrim / Feidhlimidh Fortuin who was to be the father of; 68.Fearacach Fionn - of Fair Complexion, whose son was;
*69.Criffan / Crimthann Coscrach - of Bloodshed and Slaughter who became the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Laoghaire 85th King of Tara / Ireland who ruled for 7 years until he was killed by Rogerus, a son of Sithrig and after his rule it was to be a long period of time before the descendants of *60.Leary / Laoghaire Lorc would gain back the Kingship of Tara / Erinn, as he was to be the father of;
70.Mogh Airt the father of; 71.Art whose son was; 72.Ailill / Allod / Oilioll the father of 73.Nua / Nuadha Falaid whose son was;
74.Fearadhach / Fearach Foghlas whose son was; 75.Ailill / Oilill Glas the father of 76.Fiacha Foirbhreac whose son was;
77.Breasal Breac who came to be the direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire UI Connla Septs and Ui Laoghaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb aristocratic warrior Septs in Southern Leinster after he was to divide his territory in both Northern Leinster and Southern Leinster between his 2 sons who would then create their own individual Southern Leinster Septs.
78.Connla / Conla his younger son, was to become the direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Connla Septs and Kings of Ossory who were to have their territory in Co. Kilkenny in the south - west of Southern Leinster in his allotted territory from the south of the River Barrow / Bearbha to the eastern seaboard while his brother,
78.Lewy / Lughaidh was to become the direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb Septs and Kings of Leinster whose territory was then on the northern side of the River Barrow from Drogheda in Co. Louth in the north - east of Northern Leinster down to Co. Wicklow in the south - east of Southern Leinster. Both of these Septs / Family branches descended initially from *60.Leary / Laoghaire Lorc the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian 68th King of Tara / Erinn would come into much conflict later on over the Kingship of Leinster.
In the future the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb Septs, and Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Connla Septs who were to eventually have their territories in Southern Leinster were both initially descended from *60.Leary / Laoghaire Lorc and would always be between a rock and a hard place, with the onging dispute also over the Kingship of Tara / Erinn between the descendants of the 3 Gaelic Milesian brothers, *37.Eremon (Heremonians),*37.Eber Fionn (Heberians) and 37.Ir (Irians) for numerous generations to come. In the 1st Century AD it was also to be added to by the stupidity of Eochy / Eochaidh Ainchean who would be a Heremonian Ui Laoghhaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb King of Leinster at that time who would be the cause of a severe penalty (tribute) borumha being imposed on the proceeding Southern Leinster Ui Laoghaire Kings by *81.Toole / Tuathal Teachtmhar who would then be the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh 106th King of Tara / Ireland that would be continued to be enforced by a future 40 Gaelic Kings of Tara / Erinn / Ireland. Also in the early 3rd Century AD, *88.Cormac mac Airt who was by then to be the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Dal Cuinn 115th King of Tara / Ireland would also add a further penalty (tribute) on to this for a terrible deed of slaughter that would be carried out by 94.Dunlaing a Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Cu Corb Prince / Tanaiste of Southern Leinster who nevertheless was to become the direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Cu Corb Ui Dunlainge Septs and Kings there. Then there would always be the ongoing problem of over - lordship of Southern Leinster being carried on over Mogha's Half / Southern Leinster / Munster Province between the Heberian Sept and both of the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Dal Cuinn Ui Niaill Septs. This would also be added to by the internal conflict between the two major Cu Corb Septs who were both to be kinsmen descending from *60.Leary / Laoghaire Lorc, the Ui Dunlainge Sept and the Ui Cheinnselaig Sept, and also their kinsmen the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Connla Sept in their nearby kingdom of Ossory in the south - west of Southern Leinster. Added to all of this disputation was the fact that it was also against Celtic tradition to have an overall High King, and peaceful stability in Ireland would certainly not occur in any other way.
