AKA: Cennetig (Kennedy Cenneidig Cineadh Cineidi) MacLorcain na Munster

Some say b.0926 d.0938

Prince/King of the Dalcassians/Dal gCais -

King of Thormond

The Dal dCais were one of the tribes of the Deisi.

Their name was new, first recorded in the 930s, and they had previously been an undistinguished part of the northern Déisi. The kings of Munster at this time came from the Eóganachta, a vast, complex group of kindreds who claimed descent from Eógan Már.

The Dál gCais were based in eastern County Clare, part of the region known as Tuadmumu (later Thomond), a name which first appears in 944 in the report of the defeat of Cennétig at Gort Rotacháin by the Eóganachta king Cellachán Caisil.

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