Kal. iv. A.D. 518
Battle of Detna, in Droma-Bregh, in which fell Ardgal, son of Conall Crimhthann, son of Niall. Muircertach Mac Earca, and Colga, son of Cloith, son of Crunn, son of Fedhlimidh, King of Airghiall, were the victors.
Buti, son of Bronach, died, and Colum Cille was born, of whom was said:—
- The gentle birth of Colum, our cleric,
To-day over noble Erinn;
On the same day occurred — no arrogant saying—
The bright, victorious death of the son of Bronach.
Ailill, Abbot of Ardmacha, slept.
Beoid, Bishop of Ardcarna, rested.
