    A great war arose in Thomond, and Donogh Mac Namara and his party, namely, the people of Triochad Ced Hy Caisin, gave battle to O'Brien and to the men of Munster, in which Mac Namara was defeated, and himself and Donal O'Grady, lord of Kinel Dungaile, were slain with an immense number of both armies.
