Áedh Ua Flaithbheartaigh (died 1178) was King of Iar Connacht.

Biography[edit]

The annals record that Áedh died at Annaghdown, demonstrating that the Muintir Murchada still held some influence east of Lough Corrib into the late 12th century.

In 1185, the annals state "The West of Connaught was burned, as well churches as houses, by Donnell O'Brien and the English." In 1196 "Cathal, the son of Hugh O'Flaherty, was slain by the son of Murtough Midheach."

Áedh appears to have been succeeded by his son Ruaidhri.
