O'Kane, i. e. John, the son of Aibhne, died ; and Thomas, his brother, took
his place.

The castle of Dungannon'' was taken by the King of England's Deputy in
Ireland, viz. the Earl of Kildare, Garrett, the son of Thomas, who had gone
thither at the instance of O'Donnell, i. e. Hugh Roe ; of Turlough, the son of
Con O'Neill' ; of Maguire, i. e. John, the son of Phihp ; and of Donnell O'Neill,
with his sons and friends. The greater number of the Irish of the province
were along with them around the town [i. e. the castle], which they finally took
by great guns'" ; and they liberated many prisoners who were detained in it,

O'Donnell himself and his son, Hugh Oge, surrounded the castle ; and Maguire,
and PhiUp, the son of Tiurlough Maguire, came to join O'Donnell and his son
there. Donough-na-nordog and Philip came to a personal rencounter, in which
they pommelled each other ; but Donough's horse being killed, and he himself
thrown down, he was taken prisoner on the spot by Philip, who immediately
delivered him up to O'Donnell. The castle was afterwards taken on the same
day. O'Donnell gave Donough back to Maguire, who conveyed him to his
house, to be detained in confinement. O'Donnell afterwards gave Philip, the
son of Tur lough [Maguire], sixty cows, as a remuneration for his conquest.

Melaghlin, the son of Murroiigh, son of Teige Mac Rannall, was taken pri-
soner by Con Carragh, the son of Teige, son of Tiernan O'Rourke, and John,
the son of Tiernan O'Rovu-ke, and conveyed by them to Inis-Ochta", an island
on Lough-Mac-Nen". Rury, the son of Turlough Maguire, attacked them on
the lake, and slew these two sons of O'Rourke, and brought Mac-an-Chaoich
Mac Clancy and his son, and Melaghlin, the son of Mvvrrough, to his house.
O'Donnell, i. e. Hugh Roe, afterwards ransomed him ; and the castle of Leitrim
was given up to O'Donnell again by Melaghlin, son of Murrough [Mac Ran-
nall].

An army was led by the Earl of Kildare (i. e. Garrett, the son of Thomas,
son of John Cam), Lord Justice of Ireland, into Connaught ; and he took Ath
liag-Maenagain° from the sons of Wilham O'Kelly, and gave it to the sons of
Hugh, son of Brian; and the sons of William O'Kelly were banished westwards
across the River Suck. On this expedition the castle of Tulsk was taken by
him from the descendants of Felim Cleireach [O'Conor], and their hostages
were given up by him to Hugh O'Conor, the second lord who was over the
Sil-Murray. The castles of Roscommon and Castlereagh were also taken by
him on this expedition.

Hugh O'Conor was banished from his country by Mac Dermot, and driven
westwards'' across the Shannon, by consent of the Sil-Murray.

Mac William Burke was [drawn to their assistance] by O'Conor and the
sons of WiUiam O'Kelly. The castle of Athleague was taken by him, and given
