Flaithrí mac Domnaill
Flaithrí mac Domnaill (d.777) was a King of Connacht from the Uí Briúin branch of the Connachta. He was the son of Domnall mac Cellaig (d.728), a previous king. The sept of Ui Briun he belonged to was the Síl Cellaig of Loch Cime. He reigned from 773-777.
In 775 the Ui Maine were defeated by the Ui Briun at the Battle of Achad Liac (in Cluain Acha Liag, now called Killeroran- i.e. the Uí Maine inauguration site). After this battle the law of Ciarán of Clonmacnoise was again imposed on Connacht.
The annals record his death in 777, but other historians state he abdicated and died in 779.
