ⓘ Maine Mor

Maine Mor descended from Colla da Chrioch of Oirghialla/Oriel, which became overpopulated. Maine Mor, his father Eochaidh Ferdaghiall and his two sons Breasal and Amhlaibh, travelled to Connacht to seek new lands. They attacked the lands of the local king, Cian dFhearaibh Bolg, king of the Fir Bolg see Soghain and Senchineoil, and with the intervention of Grellan, settled in the land. In return, the Ui Maine would evermore pay tribute to Grellan, who became the dynastys patron saint.

Maine Mor ruled for fifty years, and is the ancestor of the following families: Lally, Madden, Kelly, Fallon, Neachtain, Threinfhir, and others.

He was succeeded by his surviving son, Breasal Mac Maine mór, who ruled for thirty years.
