He belonged to the Sil Chormaic sept of this branch of the Laigin and specifically to a branch which took over leadership of the Uí Dróna -the baronies of Idrone in modern County Carlow. His last paternal ancestor to hold the throne was his great great grandfather Crundmáel Erbuilc (died 655) He was the brother of Donngal mac Laidcnén (died 761). He ruled from 761 to 769.
The Uí Cheinnselaig became involved in a period of infighting and in 769 Dub Calgaid was defeated and slain at the Battle of Ferns by his successor Cennselach mac Brain (died 770) of the Sil Máeluidir sept.
