About Aengus Tuirbheach mac Echdach, Ard Rí na h'Éireann

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%93engus_Tuirmech_Temrach

--------------------

384BC -------------------- Aenghus Tuirmheach Teamhrach, King of Ireland, d. ca. 325 BC in Tara, Ireland

Father: Fir Cetharraid

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.

Aenghus slew Fearghus Fortamhail to become the eighty-first monarch of Ireland ca. 384 BC and reigned for thirty years.

Children:

Enna Aighneach, King of Ireland, d. ca. 293 BC in Ireland, cause of death was the battle of Ard Crimhthainn by Crimhthann Cosgrah.
