*86.Cairbre Liffeachair the Gaelic Milesian 117th King of Tara / Ireland - 87.Eochy / Echu Doimhlen / Dubhlen.
284 AD *86.Cairbre Liffeachair - of the Liffey the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn 117th King of Tara / Ireland was slain at the Battle of Gabhra Aichle by Semeon a son of Cearb from the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Fotharta Sept who were now a subject Sept of the Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb Septs in Southern Leinster, after 86.Fear Corb, the son of 85.Cormac Cass the Heberian 2nd King of Munster, had brought the Leinster Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Fianna Warriors to defend Mogha's Half / Leath Mogha (Southern Leinster / Munster Province) against him, which may have been over sovereignty or the tribute? The oldest son of *86.Cairbre Liffeachair was;
285 AD - 322 AD *87.Fiacha Sraibhtine who was to become the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn 120th King of Tara / Ireland.
322 AD *87.Fiacha Sraibhtine the Gaelic Milesian 120th King of Tara / Ireland was slain by his nephews, the 3 Cairbres, *88.Carroll / Carioll Colla Uais - the Noble, 88.Murray / Muireadach Colla Da Crioch / Focrith - of the Two Countries and 88.Colla Meann - the Famous, who were the 3 sons of his own brother, 87.Eochy / Echu Doimhlen and Alechia the daughter of the King of Alba / Scotland as they had been advised by their Druid that this was the only way they would ever inherit the male line to the Kingship of Tara / Ireland. This kin slaying / finghal occurred when they killed him in the Battle of Dubh Chomar in Crioch Ros in Breagh / Brega in Co. Meath in the south - east of Northern Leinster while his son, *88.Murray / Muireadach Tireach, who was also his Champion, was away elsewhere on a mission. *88.Carroll / Carioll Colla Uais then became the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn 121st King of Tara / Ireland who would rule for 4 years until he was to be removed by *87.Fiacha Sraibhtine's son;
326 - 356 AD *88.Murray / Muireadach Tireach who became the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn 122nd King of Tara / Ireland, and as he had great compassion he only exiled the 3 Colla brothers banishing them and 300 of their followers to Alba / Scotland and was to rule over Ireland in his own right for the next 30 years.
327 AD. The 3 Colla brothers returned to Ireland with only a small group of 27 followers and they went directly to their cousin, *88.Murray / Muireadach Tireach who was now the Gaelic Milesian 122nd King of Tara / Ireland, under the instructions, once again, of their Druid, to threaten him, so that a kin slaying / finghal might also then be on him if he killed any one of them, but instead he forgave them and made them his personal Champions / Collas.
331 AD Seeing the numbers of the Heremonian Dal Cuinn 3 Colla Septs growing stronger *88.Murray / Muireadach Tireach, their kinsman and cousin, as the Gaelic Milesian 122nd King of Tara / Ireland advised them to go further north and seek out territory there for their own 3 Colla Septs / Family branches, against their long time enemies the Gaelic Milesian Irian Septs in the Ulster Province where the 3 Colla brothers and their followers were to be involved in 7 battles in one week in which Fergus Fogha, the son of Fraechar Foirtriun, was killed . He was then to be the last Gaelic Milesian Irian King of Ulster, who resided at Eamhain Macha (Armagh), in their ancient Irian rath there, which they also burnt, thus ending its days as an aristocratic warrior fortress and the 3 Collas were to then secure all of the territory there from the River Righe and Loch nEathach westwards, founding what was to become the Gaelic Milesian Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn 3 Colla kingdom of Orgialla / Oriel in Southern Ulster and the adjoining territory nearby in Co. Louth in the north - east of Northern Leinster.
During the conflicts that brought this all about, in the Battle of Archadh Leithdheirg in Fermanagh / Fearnmhagh one of 3 Colla brothers, 88.Colla Mend / Meann - the Famous was killed, who would become the direct male line ancestor of the Mugdorna Sept there while Cremorne in the the Barony in Co. Monaghan in the district of Crioch Mughdorn / Cree Mourne in the territory of the Mughdhorna was to be named after 90.Mourne / Mughdorn the son of 88.Colla Meann - the Famous. This was to see the beginning of the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn advance into the Ulster territory, previously controlled by the Gaelic Milesian Irian descendants of 37.Ir. the brother of *37.Eremon the ancestor of the Heremonian Septs and *37.Eber Fionn the ancestor of the Heberian Septs. The other 2 sons of 87.Eochy Doimhlen who survived were;
*88.Carroll / Carioll Colla Uais - the Noble who had become the Gaelic Milesian 121st King of Ireland, and the ancestor of the Heremonian Dal Cuinn Colla Uais Septs, which see.
88.Murray / Muireadach Colla Da Crioch - of the Two Countries or Focrith of the Earth, who founded the kingdom of Orgialla in Co. Louth in the north - east of Northern Leinster and the south of the Ulster Province whose Colla Da Crioch Ui Oirthearaigh Septs were to become the most dominant and rule over it down to the 12th Century AD producing in more modern times the Mac Mahons in the south - east, and the Maguires in the south - west of Ulster, which see. and the Heremonian Dal Cuinn Colla Da Crioch Ui Maine O Kellys in Co, Galway in thye south - east of the Connacht Province.
