Kings of Airgíalla


Kings of Airgíalla

List of the Kings of Oirialla,, (Old Irish: "Airgíalla") seventh to sixteenth centuries. Airgíalla was one of the three major kingdoms that formed what is now the province of Ulster,. It was a confederacy of nine kingdoms, ruled by one of its three most powerful kings, so its kingship frequently passed between several families.

The O'Carrolls, a noble clan of the race of the Dal Fiatachs, were at the time of St. Patrick, kings of Oriell, or that part of it comprising the county of Louth. The Dal Fiatachs or Dalfiatacians, who founded many powerful families in Ulster, particularly in Dalaradia or Down, were descended from Fiatach Fionn, legendary high king of Ireland at the commencement of the second century, of the race of Eremon. The O'Carrolls continued kings of Oriel, down to the 12th century, when they were dispossessed by the Anglo-Normans, under John de Courcy,. Donogh O'Carroll, prince of Oriel, the last celebrated head of this dynasty, founded the great Abbey of Mellifont, in Louth, in the twelfth century.

The Mac Mahon family styled themselves Princes of Oriel.
