Aenghus Tuirmheach Teamhrach, 384 B.C. His son, Fiacha Firmara (so called from being exposed in a small boat on the sea) was ancestor of the Kings of Dalriada and Argyle in Scotland. This Aongus was slain at Tara (Teamhrach). He was called Aenghus Tuirmheach because the nobility of the race of Eireamhon are traced to him.[1]

Scottish annals from English chroniclers A.D. 500 to 1286


Death: Date: 325 BC
Place: Tara, Ireland. Could not interpret date in Death Date (325 BC).


Some sources list Aenghus' father as Temrach or Eder Sal Teamrach, and jump over several of the generations listed here to Eochaidh Ailtleathan. He was called Aenghus Tuirmheach because the nobility of the race of Eremon are traced to him. The Annals of the Four Masters does not give his father's name, but the proposed lineage here contradicts the lineage given for Sirna Saeghlach in the Annals.[2]
Aenghus slew Fearghus Fortamhail to become the eighty-first monarch of Ireland ca. 384 BC and reigned for thirty years.
