Brian Ua Flaithbertaigh
Brian Ua Flaithbertaigh, King of Iar Connacht, alive 1117.
The battle of Leacain was given by Briain, son of Murchadh Ua Flaithbheartaigh, and the son of Cathal Ua Conchobhair, who had the Connaughtmen along with them, to Toirdhealbhach, son of Diarmaid, and the Dal-gCais, and made a slaughter of them in that battle.
Nowhere is it stated that Brian was King, nor is his obituary given in the years ahead. It may be that he was no more than a successful prince of the clan.
