Useful information[edit]

A few more details here[1], here[2] and here [3]. This was after a cursory search using "Brien de Bretagne" rather than the Anglicized version. I'm sure there's more in the depths of Mr Google's engine room. Good hunting. Alansplodge (talk) 17:14, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Me again - some more morsels, this time from Google Books. This [4] "Histoire Navale d'Angleterre" says (apologies for the schoolboy translation): "While William was occupied in the north of England, the sons of the late King Harold had obtained from Devinot, the King of Ireland, a fleet of sixty sails, landing a second time close to Exeter, pillaging and burning the places that they passed; but Brien, son of Eudon Count of Brittany, fought them twice on the same day, and killed seven hundred of their soldiers along with several Irish nobles who had joined with them. The others regained their vessels and returned to Ireland." Also this[5] and this[6]. Alansplodge (talk) 19:26, 17 April 2010 (UTC)--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 06:18, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
The Sons of Harold:- The surviving sons of King Harold Godwinson of England escaped to Leinster after the Battle of Hastings in 1066 where they were hosted by Diarmait. In 1068 and 1069 Diarmait lent them the fleet of Dublin for their attempted invasions of England.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 07:18, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
