Conaire Cóem ("the beautiful"),[1] son of Mug Láma, a descendant of Conaire Mór and Dedu mac Sin, was, according to medieval Irish legend and historical tradition, a High King of Ireland. He came to power on the death of his father-in-law Conn Cétchathach, and ruled for seven or eight years, at the end of which he was killed by Nemed, son of Sroibcenn, in the battle of Gruitine. He was succeeded by Conn's son Art. Conaire had three sons by Conn's daughter Saraid: Cairpre Músc, ancestor of the Múscraige and Corcu Duibne; Cairpre Baschaín, ancestor of the Corcu Baiscind; and Cairpre Riata, ancestor of the Dál Riata, with the descendants of all known as the Síl Conairi, after himself or his ancestor/double Conaire Mór. The Lebor Gabála Érenn synchronises his reign with that of the Roman emperor Commodus (180-192).[2] The chronology of Geoffrey Keating's Foras Feasa ar Éirinn dates his reign to 136-143,[3] that of the Annals of the Four Masters to 157-165.[4]
