2. The Death of Alill Ocar Agha

NOT LONG after Máel Dúin had been taken into the royal household of Aran, the Eoganacht of Ninuss were attacked in their homes by raiders from Leix, in the kingdom of Loígis. Alill’s house was surrounded, and he fled for shelter to a church named Dooclone. The raiders followed him there, and slew him in the church, and then burned it down over his body. The ruins of the church stand there to this day. And so Alill Ocar Agha of the Eoganacht lived and died, but left a son in the world. Return to Mael Duin’s Voyage index
