The Heremonian Ui Laoghaire Ui Lughaidh Cu Corb Ui Cheinnselaig Sept descending from 94.Enda Cennsalach would produce 6 Kings of Leinster early on up until 104.Aed the 17a Cu Corb King of Leinster who was to die in 738 AD, which then seemed to bring to an end their participation in the aristocratic warrior male line to the Leinster Kingships, but 304 years later on in 1042 AD after the decline of their kinsmen the Heremonian Cu Corb Ui Dunlainge aristocratic warrior male line the Heremonian Cu Corb Ui Cheinnselaig Sept would regain the upper hand and produce another 9 Kings of Leinster prior to the Anglo - Norman Invasion in 1169 AD. This later reversal of their fate would then bring great misfortune to Ireland when the Invasion would be instigated by their last renowned descendant 113.Dermot Mac Murrough na Gall - of the Foreigners who had by then become the 65th Ui Cheinnselaig King and the Heremonian Cu Corb 59th King of Leinster who would also be their last under the Irish Brehon Law.
