Aedh mac Aedh Breifneach Ua Conchobair was king of Connacht in 1342. He was the last of the Clan Muircheartaigh Uí Conchobhair to hold this position. He died in 1350, as the Ó Conchobar Brefnech, some eight years after being expelled. His father, a son of Cathal Ruadh Ó Conchobair had briefly made a bid for the kingship in 1309-10 from a power-base established in Bréifne Ó Ruairc.
