Cennétig mac Lorcáin of the Dál gCais (d. 951) king of Tuadmumu

  1. Mathgamain mac Cennétig, King of Munster abt 970 — 976. Mathgamuin son of Cennétig, king of Caisel, was killed by Mael Muad son of Bran[1], the previous king of Munster. [descendants: McMahon family of County Clare (Thomond).][2]
  2. Lachtna, d. 953

From Wikipedia on Cennetig:

perhaps 11 sons and a daughter, Órlaith, wife of the High King of Ireland Donnchad Donn. Órlaith was killed in 941, supposedly for adultery with her stepson Óengus.
Two of his sons—Dub and Finn—are said to have died at Gort Rotacháin in 944, two—Donncuan and Echthighern—died in 950 during the invasion of Munster by Donnchad Donn's successor Congalach Cnogba. Lachtna apparently succeeded his father, but was killed soon after, and followed by his brother Mathgamain.


Death: 951, Slain Fighting Norse, Thomond, Limerick, Ireland

The report of Cennétig's death in 951 calls him "king of Tuadmumu".
