The previous version of this article stated that Sigtrygg became king of Dublin after the death of his brother Ragnall. I have not kept this in this new edit, as I perceived this to be a confusion between how he became king of Dublin and York. That Ragnall was his brother is indeed likely, but I have seen no sources stating so. Please reinsert both of these statements if there are citations for that that I'm not aware of.

Article of Sigtrygg Caech(also called Sithric) dead 927 and Sigtrygg Silkbeard who also called Sithric can impossibly be the same person, because the latter lead an Viking army in England 1014. He was also involved in The Battle at Clontarf (Marie Wikipedia fan) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:30, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
Silkbeard is One-Eye's (Caech's) grandson. The real question is who is Caech's father, since we know who his grandfather is.184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:25, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
Congratulations on making it to today's listing on the "Did You Know..." section of Wikipedia Main Page. The process of making it the listing takes a bit of effort and involves the quick cooperation of many editors. All involved deserve recognition, appreciation, thanks and applause.
Uí Ímair translates to "Descendants of Ímar" and is properly used without "House of...". The term "Dynasty/House of Ivar" is sometimes used but this is less common so I'll stick with the original. Retroplum (talk) 15:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
Here you say overking, in the lead you hyphenate it?
Both "overking" and "over-king" appear in the literature but "overking" seems more common. Changed all instances in the text to "overking" for consistency. Retroplum (talk) 15:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
Máel Finnia mac Flannacán → Should mac be capitalised?
In modern Irish surnames mac should be capitalised, but here mac is not part of a surname but a patronymic indicator meaning son of, i.e. Máel Finnia son of Flannacán, and so should not be capitalised. Retroplum (talk) 15:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
Done (see the next change). Retroplum (talk) 15:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
King Augaire was killed and the campaign, which had lasted around three weeks, was effectively over. → This needs re-phrasing.
changed "This was followed by another victory, this time at Cenn Fuait, against Augaire mac Ailella, overking of Leinster. King Augaire was killed and the campaign, which had lasted around three weeks, was effectively over." to "This was followed by another at the Battle of Confey (also known as the Battle of Cenn Fuait), against Augaire mac Ailella, overking of Leinster, who died in the battle. Augaire's death marked the end of effective opposition to the Vikings' return to Ireland." Retroplum (talk) 15:41, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
