Fergnae mac Oengusso Ibdaig


Fergnae mac Oengusso Ibdaig

Fergnae mac Óengusso Ibdaig (died 557) was a Dal Fiatach king of Ulaid. He was the nephew of Muiredach Muinderg mac Forgo (died 489) and grandson of Forga mac Dallán, previous kings. [Byrne, Table 6; Charles-Edwards, appendix XXI; Mac Niocaill, pg.74]

He ruled the Dal Fiatach from 532 and succeeded Eochaid mac Condlai of the Dal nAraide as king of Ulaid in 552. He ruled from 552-556. [the "Book of Leinster" gives him a reign of 5 years and "Laud Synchronisms" 3 years]

He was slain at the Battle of Druim Cleithe (Kilclief, County Down) by his cousin Demmán mac Cairill (died 572) who had support of the Uí Echach nÁrda, another branch of the Dal Fiatach. ["Annals of Ulster" AU 557.1; "Annals of Tigernach" AT 556.2] As a result of this battle, his branch of the Dal Fiatach known as the Ui Ibdaig were excluded from the throne. [Ó Cróinín pg.216-217 places it in the year 533] This clan was named after Fergnae's maternal ancestor, mother of his father Óengus Ibdaig. [Charles-Edwards, pg.624]
