No Better Deed

Edward Bruce, the destroyer of Ireland in general, both Foreigners and Gaidhil, was killed by the Foreigners of Ireland by dint of fighting at Dun-Delgan.  And there were killed in his company Mac Ruaidhri, king of Insi-Gall [Hebrides] and Mac Domnaill, king of Airthir-Gaidhil [Argyll], together with slaughter of the Men of Scotland around him.  And there was not done from the beginning of the world a deed that was better for the Men of Ireland than that deed.
